The Brave Wallet is a secure, multi-chain cryptocurrency wallet integrated right within the Brave, a privacy-focused web browser with over 57 million users. This innovative wallet empowers users to buy, receive, and send crypto assets across multiple chains. In addition, the Brave Wallet allows users to import non-custodial wallets, track live crypto prices, swap coins, and interact with Web3 DApps.
The development comes after the two leading cryptocurrency exchanges added support for Shiba Inu in the past week. Digitra.com, a Brazil-based cryptocurrency exchange listed SHIB on May 19th. CoinMENA, a Bahrain-based exchange, announced its support for SHIB one day later.
In addition, Ragnar, the official Shibarium Telegram group admin, recently revealed that the Shiba Inu development team is actively working on the highly anticipated ShibaSwap 2.0. He further highlighted that ShibaSwap 2.0 will undergo a comprehensive security audit by CertiK, the renowned blockchain security platform, before its rollout.
This pivotal announcement comes after recent reports surrounding Shiba Inu’s CertiK AAA rating, which had suffered a temporary setback. As reported by The Crypto Basic, Shiba Inu’s security score on CertiK dropped to 93.67%, leading to its descent to the 51st position on CertiK’s esteemed security leaderboard.
