As the adoption of cryptocurrencies such as Solana continues to grow, it has become the responsibility of the service provider to make the use of crypto as transparent and efficient as possible. At the latest news, Brave and Solana have partnered to push the adoption of cryptography while making use efficient.
Brave advertised via a Twitter feed on February 7, revealing that the browser has now added SOL support from Apss following its partnership with the network. Brave will enable a wallet for sending, receiving, storing, and purchasing SOL-based tokens on the browser.
Brave’s New Update to Boost Crypto Adoption
The goal behind the collaboration to enable dApp support appears to be more of a push for adoption than an update. Brave CEO and Co-Founder Branden Eich said, “With the addition of Solana dApp support on mobile, we’re extending that reach to another key group looking for fast, user-friendly ways to use their crypto on the go.”
Head of Partnerships at Solana Foundation, Amelia Daly released a statement saying, “User experience can be very fragmented in crypto. The Brave dApp integration is important because it enables seamless browser-based connections to your favorite Solana programs, and it’s optimized for mobile.
Brave is a fully-featured mobile browser that can explore and connect to DApps. The new feature supported by dApp is suggested to further assert its place in the web3 ecosystem.
