Users of the privacy oriented Brave Browser now have the possibility to trade cryptocurrencies directly within the software interface thanks to a partnership between the publisher of the Brave Browser and the cryptocurrency exchange Binance. Brave announced the partnership on Tuesday and explained it in detail:
The new Binance widget in the new tab of the Brave desktop browser makes Brave the only browser that offers integrated functionality for buying and trading cryptocurrencies.
The privacy browser Brave has added a Binance widget for crypto currency trading. An early version of this new feature is now available in Brave’s Nightly Desktop version and will be fully released for desktops in April. The Binance widget will allow Brave users to access the Binance.com and Binance.us websites (for US users), buy and sell cryptocurrencies, view asset balances and retrieve deposit addresses without leaving the browser,“ the announcement continued. „The Binance widget will provide users with several options for managing cryptocurrencies, including buying, depositing, trading and viewing summaries. Users will be able to trade cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin and many others supported by Binance.
The history of Brave
Regarding the newly added cryptographic currency trading functionality, Brave explained in his Tuesday announcement:
The Binance Widget is integrated with Brave and is not a loaded iframe (remotely embedded document), protecting the user’s privacy. API calls are only made in Binance if the user authenticates via OAuth and interacts with the widget.
