BAT/Brave Joins the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) ecosystem to accelerate DeFi adoption: BAT now available as wrapped-BAT on BSC

Basic Attention Token (BAT), the native token to Brave privacy browser, explores multiple blockchains as a part of its Themis initiative and is now also available on Binance Smart Chain (BSC) as wrapped BAT. BAT holders can use numerous bridges that connect Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain to participate in the DeFi ecosystem on BSC. 

Brave’s browser wallet currently supports Ethereum and BSC through a configuration change in the wallet, but Brave is planning to preconfigure support for Binance Smart Chain later this year. This will allow users to access BSC without downloading additional apps, creating new wallets, and updating configurations in the Brave wallet. Given the low transaction costs on BSC, Brave is also exploring the use of BSC to enable P2P tipping within the Brave browser.
