Today, we are thrilled to announce that Brave Rewards users can have their Basic Attention Tokens (BAT) seamlessly deposited into a Gemini account through the new Gemini User Wallet.
One year ago we launched our partnership with Brave, providing crypto wallets for Brave Creators and adding the Gemini Trading Widget to the Brave browser. Brave is an internet browser with over 34 million monthly users, and compensates users with BAT if they opt in to view privacy-preserving Brave Ads. Our expanded integration now allows Brave users to do much more with the BAT they’ve earned with just a few clicks.
Once you connect your Brave Rewards wallet to Gemini, you can spend your BAT with Gemini Pay at participating retailers. Customers in the U.S. and Singapore can also move BAT into Gemini Earn and earn up to 3.49% APY* on their holdings. You’ll also benefit from our industry-leading security and compliance protocols, ensuring your crypto remains secure.
From the Brave Rewards page, users can link their Brave Rewards wallet to an existing Gemini account, or easily create one, and up to four Brave Rewards wallets (in different user profiles, or on different devices) can be connected to a Gemini account. BAT payouts are sent as direct deposits to your Gemini account, simplifying the BAT earnings and redemption process.
Your Brave Rewards account balance will reflect the BAT balance in your Gemini account, including BAT purchased via the Gemini exchange, and all your BAT can be used within the Brave Rewards ecosystem.
The Gemini User Wallet for Brave Rewards is available in today’s Brave desktop update (version 1.29), and support for Gemini User Wallets in the Brave Android app is coming soon.
We are delighted to continue building our partnership with Brave as we provide you with more ways to build your crypto portfolio while ensuring you remain secure online.
Onward and Upward!
