According to the company, the integration will allow Solana dApps to run within the browser and Solana will also implement Themis, a privacy-by-design advertising protocol on its network.


During a Breakpoint conference in Lisbon on November 8, the team said it will now add Solana to the supported networks under its multi-chain strategy.


Note that until now, Brave is only supporting Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain (BSC) browser-based cryptocurrency wallets and DEX aggregators.


To elaborate more, Brendan Eich, CEO, and co-founder of Brave Software highlighted some technical changes the team is making in the web browser to support Solana dApps. Eich said,


“Brave is adding support for Solana account creation, key management, transaction creation, and signing, as well as adding support for Solana’s JSON RPC APIs.”

In addition, he notes that the default support for Solana will offer fast and affordable access to the decentralized web, paving the way for the next billion crypto users.


Brave Browser is used in the crypto community as an alternative to Google Chrome. The browser also rewards users with Basic Attention Token (BAT) tokens for viewing anonymized ads.
