What is FTX and why did it suddenly show up on my browser window?

I’ve been away from my computer for a few days and when I returned I have a pop-up for something called FTX. I am not real sure what this is or why it appeared. At first I thought it was some sort of scam or virus but I see now it has something to do with crypto currency. I don’t use crypto currency so have no need for FTX, assuming this is what’s it’s for.

How do I get rid of this, assuming Brave purposely put it on their browser’s front page.

Hey @dbsoccer !

Can you please provide a screenshot of what you are referring to?


FTX is a crytpo currency exchange – what you’re seeing on your NTP is a widget that allows you to view/transact with your FTX account directly from within your browser. Nothing to worry about here! :slight_smile:

If you want to get rid of it, simply click Edit cards on the widget there, then Hide for the FTX widget and you won’t see it anymore.

Hope this helps!

Thanks. I am assuming this feature is something that was recently added?? Not sure why it appeared after I returned from being gone. It wasn’t there when I left.

But thanks for clarifying. It is gone now


Yes that is correct. :slight_smile:
