Brave, a privacy-oriented browser, today announced the launch of the Brave Wallet, a crypto wallet built into the Brave desktop browser. The Brave Wallet does not require extensions; it’s browser-native, reducing security risks and reliance on extra CPU and memory.

Users can transact with almost any crypto asset, as well as connect with other wallets and Web3 DApps. The Brave Wallet will soon be available on all Brave mobile apps as well. Moreover, the Brave Wallet allows users to connect with hardware wallets like Trezor and Ledger. Users of Brave can continue to use other wallets if they prefer, such as MetaMask or Brave’s legacy wallet named Crypto Wallets.

Now, all Brave users will have access to Web3 decentralized applications (DApps) without installing a browser extension.

With the Brave Wallet, users can:

  • See live and historical market graphs (price data powered by CoinGecko)
  • Find the best price match against a list of providers with built-in swap functionality
  • Send and receive assets
  • Buy with fiat via Wyre
  • Interact with DApps for any EVM compatible network
  • Manage their portfolio — with non-fungible tokens (NFT)s and multi-chain support
  • Easily import their wallet from MetaMask and self-custody wallets, or Brave’s legacy Crypto Wallets extension, or hardware wallets such as Trezor and Ledger (no Ledger Live required)
  • Send and receive NFTs

Brian Bondy, CTO and co-founder of Brave said:


“The Brave Wallet requires no extensions and is instead browser-native, removing key performance and security concerns while preserving the core features of popular crypto wallets. The Brave Wallet offers our over 42 million users, and anyone seeking a crypto wallet without extensions, a high-performance, highly secure, and full-featured wallet built for today’s crypto user.”

Free to use, the Brave Wallet supports all EVM compatible chains (Polygon, xDai, Avalanche, etc.) and L2s, and unlike other wallet extensions, the Brave Wallet is built with an open MPL license, enabling developers to make contributions easily.

Also recently announced, in 2022, the Brave Wallet will integrate the Solana blockchain, making Solana the default for DApp support.
