The blockchain world is thriving in spite of the hiccups experienced in the crypto market. In that context, the privacy-oriented blockchain web browser known as Brave is in the news yet again. The browser has seen its monthly active users (MAU) almost double rising from 5.5 million in 2018 to 10.4 million this year.
Simultaneously, Brave’s daily active users (DAU) have tripled in last year to reach 3.3 million. The news was announced officially by the firm on December 5. According to the company, the recent significant growth in MAU comes after the release of Brave’s new version, Brave 1.0, published on November 13.
According to that blog post, Brave expanded its monthly active users’ base from 8.7 million in October to more than 10 million at the end of November.
New Publishers Increase 12 Times
Brave also recorded a 12-time increase in verified publishers in addition to an increase in the number of active users. All these publishers have registered to get Brave’s built-in tokens for sharing content. The tokens are known as Basic Attention Tokens or BAT.
According to the information published on BATGrowth, the cumulative total of the number of publishers on Brave was 341,880 on December 6. On the contrary, the browser had just 28,000 verified publishers at the start of 2019.
Brave is showing signs of continuous growth even after launching crypto tipping programs on social media. Various reports suggest that Brave is increasingly becoming popular. Brave has allegedly overtaken its major competitors like Firefox, Chrome, and Opera in Japanese Google Play as recorded in September.
