Brave, the cryptocurrency-powered internet browser, seems to be gaining in popularity, surpassing four million daily users.

It has been reported that Brendan Eich, the Co-founder and Chief Executive of Brave and former CEO of Mozilla, recently tweeted that Brave also has 12.2 million monthly users. As such, roughly 30% of Brave’s monthly users utilize the browser daily.

However, Brave has also seen a steady increase in the number of its publishers, with nearly 447,000 publishers currently participating in the Brave network.

It has been analyzed that over half of Brave’s publishers operate on YouTube with 268,600 — up 560% from 40,390 one year ago.

The next largest segment of publishers operate on Twitter with 52,150 — despite the program only launching last year, followed by website publishers with 45,400 — up 220% from 14,100 last March, Twitch publishers with 33,000 — up 760% from 3,800 in 12 months, and Reddit publishers which have garnered 30,700 creators in less than one year. 

Likewise, on Github and Vimeo, there are 10,550 and 6,660 publishers respectively. Currently, no Brave publishers are operating on Soundcloud.

With only 254,327 BAT addresses, it would appear that many individual publishers are operating multiple publisher accounts.

It has also been analyzed that Brave campaigns are currently active in 68 different countries.

Brave is a free browser that boasts in-built ad and tracker blocking that saw its first public release during January 2016.

Despite the browser’s ad blocker, users can opt into Brave’s ad campaign to earn the company’s native token Basic Attention Token (BAT) in exchange for viewing ads.

Moreover, the browser’s users can also choose to make donations or regular contributions in the form of BAT to their favorite content creators who have signed up to the Brave publisher program.

Last month, Brave filed a submission with the United Kingdom’s consumer protection bureau to accuse it of failing to enforce regulations that would inhibit Google’s ability to mass-collect data on its citizens.

Johnny Ryan, the Chief Policy and Industry Relations Officer of Brave, described Google’s real-time ad bidding as comprising “the biggest data breach in the world.”

Thus, on February 25, Brave integrated Wayback Machine to allow its users to access archived versions of web pages through its browser.
