Brave, a blockchain-based Internet browser is continuing to expand its crypto tipping option by collaborating it into Reddit and Vimeo. The new version of Brave will allow the users to tip on ad-free platform Vimeo and Reddit using Brave’s native Basic Attention Token (BAT). As per a post published by Reddit last month, Brave initially introduced Reddit and Vimeo as a part of the browser’s developer preview.  

This move by Brave is not the first attempt to allow users of these platforms to tip for content. In 2012, Vimeo introduced its Tip Jar feature, which enabled content creators to get donations via PayPal or credit card. In 2013, Reddit started a content tipping option in Bitcoin through the Bitcointip bot. Both these services were shut down due to different reasons.
