Gmail and bitcoin protocol?


When I visit gmail, Brave asks if I want to allow gmail to use the bitcoin protocol… I am just curious, how is gmail using bitcoin? why is that something I am being asked about?

I tried googling this but cannot find any sort of information, so am just wondering why this would be the case?


Hi @patrick99e99,

If I’m not wrong it’s a protocol handler permission. And it listed all the protocol that Brave can handle: mailto, bitcoin, etc. The btc protocol just listed in the permission description. And of course, Gmail will not use bitcoin protocol.
