Brave’s New Video Calls Feature Lets You Use NFTs to Control Access

Brave, the web3-integrated browser known for its privacy-focused features, has recently announced the introduction of token-gated video calls to its user experience. This new tool enhances its existing Brave Talk video service and allows hosts to manage access to calls using NFTs and POAPS.

Engagement Opportunities

By leveraging NFTs and POAPS, hosts can control who can participate in the video calls, offering a unique opportunity for NFT projects to engage and communicate with their token holders. The feature is available to all Brave Talk users with a premium subscription and can be accessed on any browser with any Web3 wallet.

At present, the token-gated video calls are compatible only with Ethereum-based NFTs. However, Brave has plans to expand compatibility to other blockchain networks in the future, allowing for increased flexibility and broader adoption.

Brave aims to provide additional functionalities beyond access management. Hosts will be able to use NFTs to configure avatars, assign moderator permissions, and explore various creative possibilities within the video calls. These features, in combination with Brave’s native browser wallet, create a comprehensive Web3 live event platform, merging browsing, wallet, and video functionalities seamlessly.

Continued Growth and Expansion

The announcement comes as Brave continues to witness substantial growth in its user base, surpassing 50 million monthly active users. In previous months, Brave made strides in the blockchain space by introducing support for Solana dapps on its iOS and Android versions, expanding its capabilities and catering to a wider range of users.

Brave’s integration of NFTs into its video calls signifies its commitment to embracing new technologies and offering innovative solutions to its users. As the popularity of NFTs continues to rise, Brave’s initiative can pave the way for further advancements in the realm of decentralized communication and engagement.

With its privacy-centric approach and ongoing developments, Brave solidifies its position as a leading web3-friendly browser, catering to the evolving needs and preferences of its growing user base.
