Brave is getting braver with the upcoming Solana integration

Privacy-oriented browser Brave has inked a partnership with Solana Labs, according to a Nov. 8 announcement.

As part of the deal, Solana will become Brave’s default blockchain during the first half of 2022.

BAT is up roughly 10% on the news.
