Unexpected ad for crypto.com displayed at the bottom of the screen when opening a new tab in Brave on iOS

Description of the issue:

How can this issue be reproduced?

On iOS,
When I open a new tab in Brave,
Since recently a big logo for “crypto.com” appears at the bottom of the wallpaper.

Expected result:

I thought that the Brave browser was about shielding me from unwanted ads…

Until recently, the bottom of the “new tab” background contained a reference to the source/author of the image. No logo/ad was to be seen there.

Maybe I mistakenly activated ads on the new tab page? If so, how can I deactivate this behavior again?

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Version 1.14.3 (

Mobile Device details

iOS 13.3.1

Additional Information:
