The Solana Network (SOL) is now integrated into the functioning of Brave’s digital wallet. Through cooperation with the NFTs platform Magic Eden, the firm also hopes to increase the utility of its BAT token.
The Solana (SOL) blockchain is now supported by the Brave web browser’s native wallet. This new capability, which debuted with version 1.39 on Monday, pushes the Web3 and privacy-focused browser even further:
Today’s desktop release (1.39) brings Web3 updates for #BraveWallet & @AttentionToken, including first steps of our @Solana integration.

SOL can now be purchased directly from the digital wallet thanks to the Ramp connection.
This innovation, according to Anatoly Yakovenko, co-founder of Solana, adds another dimension to the ecosystem’s democratization. Brendan Eich, the CEO, and co-founder of Brave, shared a similar sentiment:
As the leading Web3 browser, Brave now provides integration with Solana’s blockchain so users and developers can transact seamlessly on their fast and inexpensive network. We also look forward to dApps support in a future release to leverage Solana’s growing […] ecosystem. »
BAT to buy NFTs
The founding team of Brave hopes to change that by adding functionality to the BAT token. Because of the Wormhole Bridge, this last implementation allows you to utilize the BAT on Solana at first. A relationship has also been formed with Magic Eden, a non-fungible token (NFT) platform.
Indeed, as Sidney Zhang, the founder of Magic Eden, pointed out, users of the Brave wallet will soon be able to buy NFTs on the platform with this token:
“We are able to open a new usage of the token for Brave’s crypto-native audience in Solana’s NFTs by allowing them to trade NFTs on Magic Eden with BAT.”
Of course, these new features are insufficient to provide tangible added value to the BAT, but they demonstrate the company’s commitment to improve its product in a competitive market.
