The widge is currently limited to North America, but it will soon expand following testing. The service is still being evaluated, according to the team.

Users seem to be impressed on the whole, praising the privacy and the smooth experience of starting a call.

The BAT token became the first ERC-20 token outside of ETH to generate DAI, and consistently receives praise for its model, which has even been inspired Italian porn-focused project PornVisory. It has also been listed by the notoriously selective exchange Gemini.
