Brave Browser is an open source web browser focusing on providing better privacy and blocking intrusive ads and trackers.

The browser provides an opt-in advertisement system powered by the Ethereum blockchain and the firm’s proprietary Basic Attention Token (BAT).

Recently, the number of monthly active users on Brave had increased by 125% over the past year, reaching 15.4 million people at the end of May.
