The privacy-focused Brave web browser became the most downloaded web browser for Android in Japan. According to a recent post released on Reddit, this is the first time that Brave takes the first spot in a large country. Brave became popular among crypto users because of its privacy features.
Android users in Japan have been downloading the Brave web browser for their smartphones. While other competitors such as Firefox and Opera get weaker over time, Brave is making strong advancements to become one of the most respected web browsers around the world.
Japan is one of the most important countries in terms of crypto adoption, regulation and awareness of digital currencies. Moreover, the Japanese yen is also the second-largest currency traded for Bitcoin (BTC) after the U.S. dollar. This shows that the local population is aware of cryptocurrencies, how they work and how important they are for societies.
This could also influence the Brave Browser and its digital currency the Basic Attention Token (BAT). Brave is currently allowing users in some jurisdictions to earn rewards on the content they watch. The content is provided by companies approved by Brave and that provide relevant information to users. Meanwhile, could opt-in to receive these ads in exchange for rewards and information.
The main difference between Brave and other web browsers is that the first allows individuals to take care of their data.
