The folks at Brave have gone and done it again. Our favorite crypto-inspired private web browser just keeps on grabbing everybody's attention.
With claims already on the best browser for privacy, now they're setting out to test launch a video conferencing service, that they expect to compete with Zoom.
Zoom became the darling of the masses, industry and governments during the current coronavirus pandemic.
However, this sudden mass adoption showed discernible flaws in its privacy and security. Think back to the report from Singapore in April, when lewd pictures started appearing during online teaching classes.
Seeing the obvious need for better security and privacy Brave decided to launch their own privacy-focussed blockchain powered video conferencing service, Brave Together.
How Far on is Development?
The Brave Together video conferencing service is based on the open source encrypted video software, Jitsi, which incidentally, we at MinedHash use for weekly conferencing, and was famously endorsed by none other than, Edward Snowden, a man well known for his views on privacy.
As of writing, Brave Together only allows two participants in their video conferencing call.
However, the fully functional service is being tested in the USA by users of Brave Nightly before being launched. Brave Nightly is a sandbox used by Brave for testing and developing the Brave browser.
Once all the chinks have been ironed out the full version will be launched on the Brave browser.
While you are waiting for the full launch, you can still use the 2 people calling service, and don't forget to add it to your favorites.
Brave Going from Strength to Strength
Anybody who is a regular reader of this site will know the high regard, we at MinedHash have for Brave Browser. Therefore, the launch of Brave Together which uses end to end encryption, into the video conferencing industry, shows again just how much potential this crypto company, which uses the BAT crypto currency, has to offer.
With more and more crypto projects starting to show real life uses, Brave, with its focus on your privacy, is one of the most exciting out there.
