The Weekly BAT + Podcast Ep. 66 — New partnership w/ Splinterlands (use BAT for in-game purchases), Why Brave over Chrome? (ELI5), Verizon shares Brave Ads campaign results (via Mediapost)

Brave announces partnership with Splinterlands, the most played game on the blockchain. Users can now spend BAT directly in the game to purchase Credits for packs & cards!

Splinterlands, the most played game on blockchain, and Brave are excited to announce a new partnership. Brave and Splinterlands both share a similar mission of rewarding users for their time and attention as well as increasing user privacy and freedom, and are looking forward to working together to spread those goals. Going forward, the Brave browser will be the official browser of Splinterlands.

Additionally, Splinterlands will allow users to spend their BAT (Basic Attention Tokens) directly in the game to purchase Credits, which can be used to buy booster packs and other items in the shop or to buy cards from other players on the market. Players using the Brave browser can opt in to view privacy-preserving ads and in turn be rewarded in BAT via Brave Rewards, which they can then redeem in Splinterlands!

Built-In Crypto Wallet

The Brave browser features a built-in Crypto Wallet for transacting directly with the Ethereum blockchain. You can import your existing Ethereum wallets, connect a Ledger or Trezor hardware wallet, or create a new wallet right in the browser to interact directly with Splinterlands.

Splinterlands players can use the Brave Crypto Wallet to log in to the game, make payments with ETH or other Ethereum-based tokens, and even manage their wrapped Dark Energy Crystal (DEC) token balances in order to participate in the recently launched ETH-DEC Uniswap pool which offers some amazing rewards to liquidity providers!
