The famous privacy centric cryptocurrency powered web platform named Brave Browser launches video calls featuring end-to-end encryption. Basically, this encrypted video service is dubbed ‘Brave Together’ and can be used to make unlimited video calls between two participants.
For those who haven’t heard about Brave before, this browser has been in the spotlight in our cryptonews section for a while. The new feature can be accessed by every user of the browser – and there are no account sign-ups needed.
We also saw that as Brave Browser launches video calls that are fully encrypted, the option that supports more than two participants is also being tested on Brave Nightly – which is the actual development version of the browser. Based on the open-source encrypted video software Jitsi, Brave Together was vouched for by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2017.
This move comes after a major expansion that Brave made in the use of video conferencing – right on time, according to many experts. During the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown, we can see that Zoom is seeing an enormous spike of usage.
However, this platform received criticism concerning privacy and security, with plenty of ‘Zoom-bombings’ emerging as a weird phenomenon during the lockdown. Even one internal memo revealed that Elon Musk’s SpaceX company had banned its employees from using Zoom due to the “significant privacy and security concerns.”
Despite the strong lift, the CEO of Brave recently spoke about how only a small percentage of the users of Brave Browser take full advantage of the actual privacy features. As of today, we can see that more than 662,000 content creators have signed up to Brave’s publisher program, and 53% of these publishers operate on YouTube.
Meanwhile, Basic Attention Token (BAT) is now 32nd on the crypto market cap, trading at $0.21 with a 2.20% increase.
