Joe Rogan is the world’s most popular podcast host with 8.59 million YouTube followers. Rogan discussed online privacy in his latest June 2 podcast, Joe Rogan Experience, and said he was using the privacy search engine browser Brave to avoid being tracked. In one day, the program has received more than 1.4 million views and 28,000 likes.
Brave is an open-source web browser that specializes in privacy protection, maintaining user privacy by blocking ads, and website trackers. For the encryption community, Brave Browser allows users to make encrypted payments to content publishers and creators. Brave is the only multi-million-dollar user platform outside Reddit that uses cryptocurrencies.
On June 1, Brave celebrated on Twitter with more than 15 million monthly active users and more than 5 million daily active users. Brave was founded five years ago by Java language founders Brendan Eich and Brian Bondy.
Crypto news reports that celebrities represented by Joe Rogan’s announcement of the use of cryptocurrency browsers may represent and influence increased public acceptance of cryptocurrencies and that the lack of acceptance in mainstream society is a constant problem for cryptocurrencies, especially tokens other than Bitcoin.
Because decentralized cryptocurrencies are more difficult to use and more complex than centralized platforms, the acceptance of cryptocurrencies in mainstream societies is always low. The report argues that a strong advantage is needed to encourage the public to try cryptocurrency-related products and that Brave’s competitiveness over mainstream browsers lies in its ability to protect privacy and automatically block ads. As people become familiar with the Brave platform, the use of encrypted assets may increase further.
Brave browser usage has “gone wild” over the past year, breaking several milestones in a row, and Brave is developing new features and updating its platform every month, NewsBTC reported. The report believes that the growing emphasis on internet privacy will attract more people to use encryption-related platforms.
