How to use Brave Browser with Ethereum dApps

Brave is a new generation internet browser that's focused on privacy. Out of the box it helps you browse the internet faster by blocking ads, online trackers, and other ad malware that's omnipresent in modern day internet. By blocking the tracking scripts from ever being downloaded Brave also helps you save money on metered internet, as much as $23 a month according to their marketing materials.

Brave was founded by former executives at Mozilla - the company that brought us Netscape Navigator, the first people focused browser in the nineties, Firefox, the next generation of netscape which is 100% open source, Thunderbird, the first serious open source email client, Rust programming language that is both as fast as C++ and is much safer to use and eliminates a whole class of bugs at the language level, and much more.

You may also have heard of Brave when they've launched their ICO for Basic Attention Token. BAT famously sold out in 30 minutes earlier this year.

Brave browser comes with Metamask extension preinstalled, which is what you need in order to use Ethereum dApps, but you still have to activate it.

How to activate Metamask in Brave

Step 1. Download Brave

Go to www.brave.com and download the browser for your operating system.

Step 2. Launch Brave and configure extensions

Launch the browser and click Learn more under Enable your extensions.

Then click Manage Extensions.

And enable Metamask.

Step 3. Configure Metamask.

Click on the fox logo in the top right-hand corner of the window.

I see you there, fox!

Then follow the instructions of the extension: read the terms and conditions, create a password and write down the secret passphrase somewhere where you won't lose it, preferably on a piece of paper. Everything digital can be hacked, but paper remains as safe as ever.

Note. Make sure you do write down the secret passphrase! Otherwise if you ever forget your password or lose the laptop all your funds will be lost.

Step 4. Fund your Metamask wallet.

First, find your wallet address.

Click on the dots next to Account 1 and click Copy Address to clipboard

Then, transfer your ETH and STN to this address from your main Ethereum wallet or another exchange.

Step 5. You are ready!

Once you complete all the steps listed above you are ready to use Ethereum dApps! Once we publish Radex on mainnet Ethereum blockchain you'll be able to use it just like any other normal website.

Happy trading!
