Privacy remains key proposition from Brave
Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao, Binance CEO, believes the partnership with Brave will foster a “safer way to buy crypto” given the browsers enhanced privacy features. He said,
“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.”
According to the release, the Binance widget will allow Brave users to directly purchase and trade a number of top cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and its native asset, Binance Coin (BNB). The key advantage of the Brave based “mini crypto exchange” includes added privacy stemmed from the browser.
The report reads,
“Additionally, the Binance widget is built into Brave and is not a loaded iframe (remotely embedded document), which preserves the user’s privacy.”
Notwithstanding, the API calls will only be made into Binance if the user authenticates via OAuth and interacts with the widget ensuring utmost privacy and security of funds.
The Binance widget offers the first gateway on Brave to directly manage cryptocurrencies, buy, deposit and sell digital assets on a browser. According to Brave CEO, Brendan Eich, the ease of use and efficiency of the new widget may open up the way for the general population as they enter the crypto field.
Speaking on the partnership with Binance, Eich said,
“Cryptocurrency trading can be a daunting task for users not familiar with such assets, so integrating Binance into the Brave browser makes the process seamless and simple.”
“By bringing a leading exchange like Binance directly into the browser, Brave is taking cryptocurrency trading mainstream and enabling users to conduct transactions with ease.”
