This comes a day after Brave announced the official launch of Brave 1.0 for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS in 52 languages. A difference from the previous version is that “the Brave browser was previously in beta release,” the announcement states, adding that it “already has 8.7 million monthly active users across the globe.”
BAT has a history of reacting positively to good news. In July, it went up 5% after Brave introduced a button for Reddit users to tip each other. Also, it jumped 10% in October after Brave surpassed 8 million monthly active users. In April, the browser celebrated a number of successes, and in May it started testing a new feature for tipping tweets.
