Users of the privacy-focused Brave browser would be able to tip individuals on Reddit and Vimeo using Basic Attention Token (BAT). This is according to a member of the team at Brave that wrote about it on Reddit a few days ago.
Brave Browser To Allow Users Tip on Reddit and Vimeo
Brave continues to expand with its features and services for users for them to have a better experience while using the platform. This time, the intention is to allow individuals to tip other users on the Reddit social media network and on Vimeo using BAT. This would allow content creators to reduce their dependency on ads that tend to reduce users’ experience while surfing the web.
At the moment, these new features are being tested by the web browser on its developer version, that is much less stable than its beta or main versions. This version was created for developers to test new implementations and features that would later be included in the beta or main versions.
There was a Reddit user that said that he noticed a “Tip” button icon at the bottom right of each post. There was a user called bat-chriscat that claims to be on the BAT / Brave team that mentioned that this is not yet on the main release of Brave. Indeed, the user mentioned that he is using Version 0.68.84 Chromium: 75:0.3770.100 (Official Build) dev (64-bit).
About it, the Brave developer commented:
“Kindly note that this is not yet on the main release of Brave, but on our Developer preview desktop build. The features in our developer preview builds make their way into our BETA and then MAIN on a 3-week development cycle, so they’ll be in MAIN soon!”
There are other tipping applications in the cryptocurrency space, including Tippin.me and the XRPTipBot. Tippin.me works by leveraging Bitcoin’s (BTC) Lightning Network (LN) and it is currently available for Twitter users. The XRPTipBot is currently available for Twitter, Reddit and Discord and it uses XRP as the base digital currency.
At the time of writing this article, BAT is the 30th digital asset in the market with a valuation of $403 million, according to CoinMarketCap. In the last 24 hours, the virtual currency was the best performing asset among the top 30. Now, BAT has a price per coin of $0.317.
