Brave Browser Updates + NFT Surprise!

Brave Browser Updates + NFT Surprise!

By TrocProcLock | Random Tech News | 11 Feb 2021


I have been using Brave for what feels like years. In reality I started using Brave the day Coinbase told me there was a Earn option for getting BAT for watching videos about this new token called BAT. I have amassed a little "nest egg" of BAT. I was sad to see it leave Publish0x but at the same time I get it.

A few things have happened since my last BAT update article.

Brave passes the 25 million monthly active user threshold! In a year they went from 3.8 million daily to 8.6 million daily users and from 11.6 million monthly to 25.4 million monthly users. That is truly impressive.

Brave has plenty of decent Search Engines available to use. They recently just added Ecosia. Personally I have never heard of it before but it joins the likes of DuckDuckGo, Qwant, Startpage, Bing and Google.

Ecosia is a search engine that uses its advertising revenue to plant trees in areas that were/are effected by deforestation. They are the world's largest not for profit search engine with over 15 million users. The have planted over 117 million trees since their founding in 2009.

While environmental justice has led Ecosia’s mission, privacy has always been a central pillar of Ecosia’s ethos. Searches are never stored permanently, no personal profiles are created based on search history, and all searches are securely encrypted and anonymized within days.

Brave also passed the 1 million Content Creators threshold.

Brave held a AMA (Ask Me Anything) in regards to their IPFS integration. I highly recommend reading it if you have the time here: https://brave.com/ama-with-brave-and-ipfs/ 


Now to the fun part guys. You know the drill, comment with your WAX address and I will send you a NFT. 

I call this one "The Brave Lion". As always these NFT's are completely free to you so just comment and you shall receive.

This is a "1st Edition" card as well! :) There is a total of 500 supply so get in quick while the supplies last! I sort comments by oldest first and just mint the NFT's directly to your Wallet. Mint #1 for this one is mine but going forward Mint #1 will be available to whomever is first. for what it is worth I try to post my articles in the mornings but that is not a promise just a heads up *EST.

As you can see from the card the Brave Lion has no weakness's and is resistant to Firefox, Chrome and Edge! It's hard to tell from that picture but the icon next to the "attack" is a clock. I tried to pick something that related to all you have to "pay" for using the attack (earning BAT) is time. It's a stretch I know but go with me here guys.

Yesterday I was giving out little Publish0x Piggie Bank NFT's. I gave away 46 in total so far so that is super cool. I overshot it with that one and this one by having a max Mint of 500. I think next time I will lower it down to like 50 or 100 :) 

My plan is that once the articles get to much to manage to give out NFT's I will create Drops with a URL so I won't have to man it. I also greatly underestimated the amount of "RAM" I need on the WAX blockchain to send out all these NFTs and create them. It's no biggie because its cheap to stake more to RAM but just something to keep track of if you go down this path.

 

If you want more free NFT's go here: https://wax.atomichub.io/drops/2333+2332+2331+2334+2335+2336+2337+2338+2339+2340 

 

 

 

***PLEASE READ***

If you post your WAX address as a reply to a comment I may not see it. The only way I can guarantee you get one is if you write a new comment. That way when I sort comments from oldest to newest I will see your comment in chronological order.

 

****UPDATE #2*****

I created a drop so that you can collect your own NFT of The Brave Lion!
