Brave Allows to Buy Crypto at Binance Inside the App

Now a widget on the tabs in the Brave browser gives users direct access to both the Binance US

Decentralized browser Brave announced a partnership with the cryptocurrency exchange Binance. Now, Brave users will be able to buy cryptocurrencies on Binance simply by opening a new tab in the browser.

A widget has appeared on the tabs in the Brave browser, which gives users direct access to both the Binance main site and the site of the American division of the exchange. Users will be able to exchange cryptocurrencies, view their balance and receive addresses for depositing cryptocurrencies directly in the browser. At the same time, developers left the option to disable the widget in the settings.

The developers emphasized that the widget uses the Binance API and does not download any data from the exchange servers, so that user data is protected. The new feature is available in the desktop version of Brave Nightly, and in the main version of the program it will appear in April.

The Binance widget on Brave’s privacy-oriented browser instills a safer way to buy and sell crypto and also reduces user friction to onboard, trade and interact with the Binance ecosystem. We are looking forward to our long-term partnership with Brave to make it even easier to interact with crypto and encourage more utility in the near future.
