The narrative go-to for critics outside the cryptocurrency space is to state that decentralized systems and dApps do not have active user bases. Brave Browser by Ethereum is already considered a valid alternative to existing browsers like Chrome and Firefox.
Popular Science, a widely recognized scientific journal, recently listed Brave Browser alongside Firefox and Opera as good alternatives to built-in browsers like Chrome and Safari.
"The Brave browser emphasizes security and privacy.For starters, it comes with a built-in ad-blocker (remember only to authorize the sites you want to support) so that popups can not weigh down your browsing and that Web sites can not track you. For even greater control, Brave offers advanced security settings, "wrote the Popular Science team.
The browser itself is based on Chromium, an open source project that also functions as the basic protocol of Google Chrome. However, Brave uses an ERC20 token called Brave Attention Token (BAT) to incentivize creators, particularly popular YouTubers such as Philip DeFranco and widely distributed publications.
As CCN reported in July, Brave Browser recently passed 3 million users, mostly driven by an influx of digital creators and publishers arriving at the brave ecosystem for its transparent ad revenue sharing model which uses cryptocurrency to compensate publishers.
"More than 18,000 publishers and content creators (including CCN) have registered as verified publishers, enabling them to collect BAT donated by brave users, of which the vast majority – 13,500 – are streamer from YouTube and Twitch, probably due to the fact that hosting platforms like YouTube significantly reduce shared advertising revenue, "reads the report.
The fact that the Ethereum blockchain Products based on Brave Browser and BAT are already considered valid alternatives to centralized systems and is highly optimistic, especially considering that Chrome and Safari have completely dominion over the browser industry.
More importantly, tens of thousands of publishers and creators in the courageous ecosystem are paid in cryptocurrencies like BAT, Ethereum and Bitcoin, demonstrating a practical case of decentralized consensus currencies in one of the most competitive sectors of technology.
It is difficult to consider Brave as a dApp because it is based on the same protocol on which Chrome is based. But the main browser model revolves around Ethereum and its token called BAT, which has allowed Brave to compete against major browsers like Opera and Firefox in recent months.
Today's pure peer The dApps that are closest to achieving large-scale user bases are decentralized exchanges. IDEX, Bancor and AirSwap handle exchanges that are often used by users of Ethereum, especially those using Meatamask.
