The Brave browser is gaining serious momentum during the Covid-19 lockdown.

On April 29, the Brave ecosystem had its biggest one-day growth record with 5039 new creators signing up.

Batgrowth.com and bat.watch show the biggest growth in April seems to be coming from Vimeo, YouTube and Twitch.

What's really stunning to me though is that it's not just random, small YouTube accounts verifying in the hopes of squeezing some extra revenue from their small audience - its major YouTube channels with millions of subscribers!

Just this week Brave had several very large YouTube channels joining:

While these amazing growth numbers are very encouraging, what's even more impressive is that BAT - the native token of the Brave ad economy, which gives monetary value to every single ad interaction, is also seeing increased support from major, regulated exchanges like Coinbase, Bitstamp and Gemini.

Gemini being one of the few NYDFS regulated crypto exchanges in the state of New York.

Coinbase announced on Thursday a new BAT-USD pair. Prior to this announcement, Coinbase had only two BAT pairs: BAT-USDC and BAT-ETH.

Although Bitstamp hasn't made the decision to add BAT just yet, they did say BAT is one of the coins being considered for inclusion in their March 31 update.

And seeing as Coinbase and Gemini are now positioning themselves to gain market share in the Brave/BAT economy, I don't see how Bitstamp will be able to avoid BAT.

Bitstamp is one of the biggest regulated exchanges within the European Union!
