The Brave Browser and New York-based cryptocurrency exchange Gemini have announced a new partnership that will see the former enable its users to connect directly to the Gemini accounts allowing them to buy, sell, store and earn crypto.
Through the partnership, Brave will then display a new widget similar to the Binance widget already available on the Brave widgets repository and users will be able to connect to their Gemini accounts without having to visit Gemini directly.
In a joint statement on Wednesday, the two companies noted that the new feature is already available on the Brave Nightly version, a testing version of the popular privacy-focused internet browser. According to the statement, the Gemini widget will be launching on the general release version “in the coming weeks.”
In April this year, Brave integrated the popular Binance’s cryptocurrency in a similar feature addition displaying a Binance widget on its New Tab page. This allowed both Binance International and Binance.US account holders to connect their accounts for easy purchase, storing and account balance queries on the Brave browser without having to directly access their wallets. Similar to the Binance widget integration, Brave now allows Gemini users to trade and purchase all trading pairs supported by the New York DFS-regulated exchange.
Additionally, through this partnership, Brave-verified content creators and publishers will now be able to access the Gemini Creator Wallet for safe storage of their cryptocurrency assets including the Brave native token Basic Attention Token (BAT).
“That means Brave creators can receive their BAT payments into their Gemini Creator Wallet, or in any other fiat or crypto asset supported on Gemini’s Exchange,” the statement reads.
To enable the new feature, users will be required to activate it through a Gemini widget. To access the widget, users will be needed to either connect their accounts if the widget is already available on the New Tab page or add it from the “Add Card” menu on the page. Once the Gemini Card is displayed, they can then proceed to use their Gemini credentials to connect the widget to their wallet accounts. Content publishers, on the other hand, will be required to create a new wallet on the Gemini Creator Wallet page following which they will be required to connect to their Gemini wallet account or create a new wallet.
In other news, Brave recently partnered with leading Japanese crypto exchange bitFlyer to make cryptocurrency more accessible in the leading Asia economy. Through this partnership, bitFlyer listed the BAT token as well as committed to creating a new wallet specifically to be used by Brave users in Japan. BitFlyer becomes the first company to partner with the popular browser in Japan following this announcement.
