- Brave has unveiled a new feature of its video calling product Brave Talk.
- The new feature uses Non-Fungible Token (NFTs) to control access to calls.
- Brave Talk intends to change live events and video calls.
Projects are still finding new and exciting use cases for Non-Fungible Token (NFTs), pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the digital realm with these assets. This time, Brave, a privacy-focused Web 3.0 browser, is at the forefront of a revolution, introducing a new app for NFTs: Token-gated Video calls.
Brave looks to shake up the video calling and live event industry by integrating Non-Fungible Token (NFTs) into the fabric of video calls and redefining how users engage online.
Unveiling Brave Talk
Trending Web 3.0 browser Brave has unveiled a new token-gating feature for its video calling product, Brave Talk. The new Web 3.0 feature enables call hosts to use Non-Fungible Token (NFTs) and Proof of Attendance Protocol Non-Fungible Token (NFTs) (POAPs) to delimit access, configure avatars, assign moderator permissions, and more.
With this feature, Brave ushers in a new era of video calling and live events by creating the world’s first-ever fully integrated Web 3.0 live event platform that seamlessly integrates browser, wallet, and video capabilities.
Brave’s Web 3.0 calling feature introduces a new level of functionality and security regarding user authentication and authorization by leveraging token-gated access. On the other side , video-calling solutions like Zoom and Google Meet still rely on passwords to control access. Brave Talk mimics real-life ticket-gated entry through the new feature using Non-Fungible Token (NFTs) as tickets.
Token-gating is a whole lot of achievement for Brave Talk. Communities and projects can now hold members-only events for crypto token holders, reward loyal fans, establish Non-Fungible Token (NFT) auctions, and more.
Despite the fact that the feature is only compatible with Ethereum-based Non-Fungible Token (NFTs), in particular ERC-721 Non-Fungible Token (NFTs), the possibilities are endless, all thanks to the Token-gating mechanism.
What is Token-gating?
Token-gating is one of the primary ways users can control access in Web 3.0, and it comprises two parts: authentication and authorization.
In the authentication phase, users’ wallet addresses are verified using the SIWE (Sign-In with Ethereum) protocol for Web 3.0 authentication. The system sends a message to the wallet address. Users sign the message using their address and return it to the sender for verification.
In the authorization phase, the token-gating system checks users’ wallets if it passes the requirements. The requirement can be having a certain Non-Fungible Token (NFT), crypto token, or membership to participate in the call.
Brave’s new Web 3.0 calling feature will shake up video calling and live events because it’s very simple to use given that most Web 3.0 protocols are relatively tricky to use as a result of their UI.
How to Use Brave’s New Web 3.0 Calling Feature
Note that only users with a Premium Talk subscription can access the new feature. Once you’re subscribed to Premium Talk, here’s how you can access Brave’s new Web 3.0 calling feature.
- Open the Brave Browser.
- Click Host a Web 3.0 Call.
- Authenticate your identity using your Web 3.0 wallet.
- Once verified, you can choose an Non-Fungible Token (NFT) as an avatar and specify who gets to join the call.
Brave Talk’s new feature is still very experimental. The privacy browser has shared that it intends to use feedback from current users’ experiences to optimize future versions. Brave has numerous features lined up for the future, which could roll out thereafter this year.
What’s Next for Web 3.0 Brave Talk?
Despite the fact that NFT-gated Brave Talk is only open to premium users, the browser company has shared that it intends to open the feature to all users. Brave added that it’s as of now testing features like support for non- Ethereum (ETH) Non-Fungible Token (NFTs), token-gating for owners of a particular crypto token, token-gating according to past ownership, and sending digital currencies to participants.
