Is Brave Browser the solution for ongoing Crypto Scam through advertisements on YouTube

Brave browser is said to be a privacy-focused browser that mainly aims to protect its users from being stalked online. In a layman language, it means that it prevents the advertisers from identifying and tracking you.

The makers of the browser are not only concerned about the security issues rather its fundamental aim is to change the way the websites create money by using the BAT (Basic Attention Token) cryptocurrency. This BAT is mainly based on the Ethereum blockchain updates and information which also benefits their concept in total.

Brave is similar to Chrome, Opera, Edge etc. that is based on Google’s open-source chromium code, and hence it can be said that it’s convenient and feasible to use. In addition, it supports some unique features as it aims at blocking the advertisements, tracking of web facilities, provides for hiding traffic browsing Tor, has built-in Bit Torrent utility and also provides for a cryptocurrency wallet.

It was said in one of the programs that the BAT system will only take off if a large number of websites take advantage of the features of it i.e, free of ads and chance to earn something in return. The company also asserted that the advertisements’ money on the sites is going to Facebook and Google instead of significant content publishers these days.

However, the tweet also received unexpected reply such as many followers contended that the brave browser is not blocking the ads properly these days, not sure whether these are safe to use or not. One of the followers tweeted that it loads slowly, and need to fix the sync browser between the smartphone and PC.

Although, the makers have confirmed to fix the problems soon. The CEO of the browser, Brendan Eich mentioned that “the autocomplete default was inspired by search query client id attribution that all browsers do, but unlike keyword queries, a typed- in URL should go to the domain named, without any additions.

You can install the browser easily from It is not a lengthy process and in return downloads and installs the software of the browser, similarly, the other browser does.

Moreover, how can one forget the scam going around the cryptocurrency world? The hackers targeted the recognized cryptocurrency exchanges and also hijacked some renowned personalities twitter accounts in order to manipulate the audience and is successful in doing so. It can be said that the Brave browser can somehow protect the audience to escape from this mess.
