The developers of the Brave browser have updated the project roadmap. It includes decentralized exchange aggregator and a new Brave Wallet.
According to the BAT Roadmap 2.0, the Brave developers are planning to make important changes to the browser. The add-ons will expand the scope of the browser beyond web browsing and provide support for the decentralized finance (DeFi) industry.
The developers will create a DEX aggregator that will help users find and trade on the best possible price on several decentralized exchanges. According to the roadmap, Brave will create their own DEX, as developers have confirmed that they are studying this possibility.
Brave CEO and co-founder Brendan Eich said:
One of our goals is to make crypto assets user-friendly for all. The DEX that we are exploring can help achieve our goal by allowing users to securely exchange BAT and other assets at a lower price, as part of an improved user interface embedded in Brave.
DEX can open up new ways to use BAT, for example, to pay transaction fees with BAT or get discounts for owning BAT. Detailed information about the DEX aggregator from Brave is not disclosed, but the developers say that it will be different from other Dex’s providing discounts for BAT owners.
A new, native Ethereum wallet implementation, replacing the existing Crypto Wallets in Brave, which will combine Brave Rewards, custodial and non-custodial accounts in Brave. The developers will change the design of the user interface and add support for both the desktop and mobile versions.
