The Brave Wallet can now be used to buy, sell and hold Solana-based cryptocurrencies. Note that Brave's extensive integration with the Solana blockchain was first revealed in November of last year.

In addition, users can spend the Brave's wrapped Basic Attention Token (BAT) on Solana and other Ethereum and Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM)-compatible chains.

Brave says it chose Solana to enable users to explore Web3 with significantly lower transaction fees and faster processing times than the Ethereum network.

Furthermore, Brave adds that this partnership will also allow seamless access to a thriving and growing ecosystem of decentralized apps (DApps) in the coming months.

Brave has Web3 features like a built-in crypto wallet and rewards users in BAT for watching advertising content.
