Brave, a privacy-oriented blockchain web browser, has seen its monthly active users (MAU) almost double from 5.5 million in 2018 to 10.4 million in 2019. The firm announced on December 5 that at the same time, Brave’s daily active users (DAU) have tripled over the past year to reach 3.3 million.

According to the company, the recent growth in MAU follows the release of Brave’s new version, Brave 1.0, on November 13.
So, according to the blog post, Brave expanded its MAU base from 8.7 million in October to over 10 million at the end of November.
However, Brave also recorded a 12-time increase in verified publishers that are registered to receive Brave’s built-in tokens, Basic Attention Tokens (BAT), for sharing content.
According to data from BATGrowth, a site that tracks Brave browser adoption, the total number of Brave publishers was 341,880 as of December 6.
In contrast, Brave had just 28,000 verified publishers at the beginning of 2019.
Likewise, a number of reports show that Brave is becoming increasingly popular. The browser reportedly overtook its major competitors like Chrome, Firefox and Opera in Japanese Google Play in September.
Thus, the browser allows users to tip on major social media platforms including Twitter, ad-free video platform Vimeo and social news site Reddit using Brave’s BAT token.
