Last week, cryptocurrency-powered Brave Browser announced that it had reached Ten million downloads on the Google Play store. Brave CEO Brendan Eich has since published new stats showing that Brave Browser has become being used by 4 million monthly users. Prestashop is also hosting 21,000 verified channels and 26,000 publisher accounts.
Latest @Brave stats: 4M users , 21K verified channels, 26K publisher accounts.
We will board gas w/ brave-core + BAT on mobile this fall, see through 5M easily by EOY, >= 12M next, adding BAT ad deals to token grants, making good for the promise of @attentiontoken economics.

Last month, Brave announced it’s supporting even more than 13,500 YouTube channels, 5,300 websites and 1,100 Twitch streamers through its BAT rewards payment system. Eich had predicted that Brave would reach 5 million users by the end of 2019 in July, but with the way Brave is at present trending, that number appears to be a big underestimation.
What makes Brave so appealing is its selective browsing design. Brave Browser allows users to selectively block ads whilst giving them alternatives to receive Brave BAT token rewards for viewing and creating content. Brave is relied on as part of the coming Web3 revolution, which seeks drive an automobile the Internet out of the current Internet’s invasive ad-based revenue model through blockchain. Brave’s BAT rewards program is helping YouTube and Twitch content creators generate profit beyond the borders of advertising. Its tipping and rewards system bears a striking resemblance into the popular Steemit Smart Media Token program.
“We must disconnect the unhealthy system,”?said Brendan Eich. “I focus on putting chlorine in the pool.”
