When downloading current (2019-05-15) Brave Browser, there is a promotion that Brave will support site “cryptodude.me”. However, doing any independent research on “cryptodude.me” or “cryptodude” produces defunct sites and/or a suspended Twitter account. Is it good for Brave to be promoting seemingly defunct or possibly unethical properties?
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Download current Brave browser and install it. During installing or at the end, you will get a popup page about how easy it is to support “cryptodude.me”. Page address is here: https://brave.com/CRY262
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
I get the results from this page:
Expect Brave to only be promoting current/legitimate Internet affiliates/properties.
Reproduces how often:
Once, when installing Brave browser on a new machine for the first time.
