- Brave browser hits 10.4 million active users
- Brave set to compete with other top browser such as Chrome and Safari
- The enormous growth of Brave is attributed to its integration of Basic Attention Token (BAT)
Basic Attention Token News Today – The usage of Brave has surged enormously over the past few months, thanks to the launching of Brave rewards in more countries and iOS support. Brave, a digital currency-friendly web browser, just hit another milestone. Brave just reached 10.4 million active users, from about 9 million last month.
After the report, the price of BAT surged by more than four percent, bringing BAT/USD price to $0.1936 at press time. Brave is still one of the smaller internet browsers in popular usage.

Brave Would Soon Become a Household Name
At the moment, the most dominant web browser in terms of shares is Google Chrome, with about 59 percent market share. Whereas, Safari has 14.6 percent market share while Internet Explorer (Edge) has a 9.5 percent market share. Nevertheless, it might not take much time for Brave to become a household name. Just last month, the digital currency-friendly internet browser announced that it had grown its user base by over 12.5 percent between October and November. The firm also announced that it had about nine million active users by the middle of November.
With more than 10.4 million active users, the browser has grown by over 15.5 percent since last month, indicating that it is gaining popularity rapidly. According to a recent report, Brave has also attained a new level of downloads on the Google Play Store. According to AppBrain, over 40 million Android users have downloaded the browser since its release in 2014 on the Google Play Store.
Brave Might See 12 Million Monthly Active Users at the End of the Year
If the crypto-friendly browser continues to grow at this rate, it might record up to 12 million monthly active users by the end of this year. It might also record as much as 50 million active users by this time next year. If it continues at this rate, it would find its way into the top ten most popular internet browsers soon.
One of the major reasons the browser has seen such an enormous level of growth is its integration with Basic Attention Token (BAT). The browser uses Basic Attention Token (BAT) to reward users for viewing sponsored content and interacting with advertisers on the platform, as part of the Brave Rewards program.
