TokenInsight: Brave browser’s monthly users have gone up by over 450% since 2018


  • BAT’s active users have grown from 1m per month in Jan 2018 to 5.5m in Jan 2019.
  • Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin considers Brave to be one of Ethereum’s most valuable adoptions.

Brave browser’s monthly active users have surged by over 450% since 2018. As per the data provided by TokenInsight, an independent, third-party crypto data analytics organization, BAT’s active users have grown from 1 million per month in January 2018 to a total of 5.5 million active users in January 2019. Brave was created to go along with the Basic Attention Token (BAT). It is a privacy-focused browser that blocks cookies and trackers by default and never allows users data to leave their machine. 

In March 2019, Brave reached over 20 million downloads on the Google Play store. TokenInsight also rewarded BAT with a triple B rating. The BBB rating signifies that the project has an excellent technical background and the risk is controllable. This puts BAT ahead of 95% of the cryptocurrencies as rated by TokenInsight. 

Brave and BAT have both received positive reviews from various prominent figures. Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin recently stated that because of the vast number of active users they have already acquired, Brave browser is actively contributing to the growth of the Ethereum ecosystem. He went on to call Brave one of Ethereum’s most valuable adoptions.

Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger has switched from Chrome to Brave. He said:

“I’ve switched to Eich’s [Brandon Eich, Brave and BAT founder] newer browser, Brave. I’ve had a much better experience using it lately than I had when I first tried it a year or two ago and when it was still on the bleeding edge. Brave automatically blocks ads, trackers, third-party cookies, encrypts your connections—and, unlike Google, they don’t have a profile about you. It’s quite good and a pleasure to use. There might be a few rare issues (maybe connected with JavaScript), but when I suspect there’s a problem with the browser, I try whatever I’m trying to do in Firefox, which is now my fallback. There’s absolutely no need to use Chrome for anything but testing, and that’s only if you’re in Web development. By the way, the Brave iOS app is really nice, too.”
