The cryptocurrency-powered Brave browser is facing criticism after it added a new cryptocurrency exchange widget for Bitcoin.com, which by default gives users the option to buy Bitcoin Cash (BCH).
Bitcoin.com is a website known for being pro-BCH. Bitcoin Cash was a cryptocurrency created back in August 2017 through a fork of the original Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain, and was the result of a years-long scaling debate within the BTC community. Those in favor of bigger blocks for the blockchain adopted Bitcoin Cash.
Brave’s move to add the Bitcoin.com exchange widget was criticized as some users believe it’s misleading for the website Bitcoin.com to promote Bitcoin Cash (BCH), as it could trick newcomers into the space to buying BCH while believing they were buying BTC.
