Blockchain browser Brave announced on May 23, that it is testing a tipping function for social media platform Twitter over its Nightly version.
As per the post, Brave Nightly users will have access to the new feature for tipping tweets with the Brave Rewards program. Brave Nightly is the testing and development version of blockchain-based browser that blocks ads and website trackers. The new feature is designed to award content creators via Brave native digital tokens, basic attention tokens (BAT).
Another announcement on the project’s website further elaborates about the tipping feature:
“When you visit Twitter in the Brave Browser for desktop, you will see a special tip button on each tweet. Tap on a tip button to send a tip directly to the author of the tweet. Tips are sent instantly and appear in their Brave Rewards account within minutes.”
