Weak Points of Brave Browser:
As many of you probably already know, Brave is a classic advertising business model. Braves browser settings allow you to set a number of ads that you would like to see per day (up to a maximum of 10 per hour). This can be somewhat annoying for new users as you will have ads pop up random times throughout the day in the corner of the screen. Some of the projects these ads represent are genuinely interesting projects, while others not so much. This is a classic business model where ad revenue will filter down to you, the user. You are essentially paying with your attention that you give to various businesses who try to entice you with offers throughout the day. Brave’s token (BAT) use a third party medium of exchange which makes it less decentralized and secure as a result.
Brave currently supports two wallet services: Uphold and Gemini. External wallets, that take additional time and complexity to set up for a first time user. This wallets also require a verification process which only allows for 4 devices to verify the same wallet. This is a lifetime cap and if you have left brave on your old smartphone, computer, or have downloaded a new instance of Brave more than 4 times then you are going to have a hard time recovering your wallet through Brave.
