- The new tool for its Brave Talk video service allows hosts to manage call access using NFTs and POAPS.
- All Brave Talk users with a premium subscription on any browser using any Web3 wallet can make the calls.
- When combined with Brave’s browser-native Brave Wallet, the tools “create the first-ever fully integrated Web3 live event platform, combining browser, wallet, and video,” according to a blog post from the company.
Brave, a Web3-compatible browser, embraces non-fungible tokens (NFTs) by incorporating token-gated video calls into its user experience.
The privacy browser announced on Twitter that its video conferencing service Brave Talk now supports Web3 calls, allowing hosts to use NFT and POAP for token-gated access.
For now, the community could hold a conference call for those who own NFTs from a specific collection. To make Web3 calls, all Brave Talk users can use any Web3 wallet on any browser.
While the feature currently only supports token gating for Ethereum NFTs, Brave Browser intends to add support for non-Ethereum NFTs soon.
“In the future, hosts can grant access based on specific token balances or previous token ownership or sent crypto to participants.” The Company stated.
In addition, hosts can use NFTs to “configure avatars, assign moderator permissions, and more.” When combined with Brave’s browser-native Brave Wallet, the tools “create the first-ever fully integrated Web3 live event platform, combining browser, wallet, and video,” according to the Company’s blog post.
Brave Software, known for its fast and secure Browser, is reimagining the online experience for users, publishers, and advertisers.
Consumers can opt into privacy-protecting advertisements via Brave’s blockchain-based digital advertising network in exchange for Basic Attention Tokens (BAT). These tokens can be redeemed, used on the site, or donated to publishers and content creators.
Brave Browser actively promotes Web3 adoption by incorporating Web3 capability into its Browser, search engine, and multi-chain crypto wallet. Brave Browser now has over 50 million monthly active users and over 1.7 million developers.
Another notable development was the announcement by BitPay that Brave Wallet had integrated the BitPay Protocol, allowing its crypto wallet customers to make simple, accurate, and dependable payments directly from the Brave privacy browser.
Users of the Brave Wallet can now pay with cryptocurrency at thousands of online and in-store retailers such as Newegg, APMEX, PacSun, AMC Theatres, and airBaltic.
Crypto payments are processed smoothly from the Brave Wallet to pay for everyday purchases, trips, and high-ticket purchases. In addition, BitPay accepts the most popular cryptocurrencies, allowing Brave Wallet users to make payments in their preferred currency.
