Brave and Presearch combo

How to set Presearch as the default search engine on the mobile version of Brave

What is Presearch

According to their website, Presearch is a "decentralized search engine to search privately and receive better results powered by blockchain technology". Basically, they pay you 0.12 PRE (their token) per search and it's a feature that goes well in hand with Brave's BAT and the Swash extension, the holy trinity of free long-term crypto.

How to use Presearch with Brave

It's very easy to set Presearch as the default search engine on a PC, you just need to install the extension or visit brave://settings/ and change it in the search engine section, but when we try to do it on Brave mobile we discover that there is a limited list of options and no way to add one!
