Although there are more losers, there are also winners that emerge at the end of the Coronacrisis (first wave). People bought more products through Amazon (making CEO Jeff Bezos the world’s first trillionaire) and watched more series on Netflix.
Businesses, on the other hand, held all of their meetings via Zoom, software that has been featured on almost every news program since.
Zoom, the popular meeting software that will likely make it as one of the top 10 most popular words of 2020, has since faced competition from WhatsApp meeting chat, Microsoft teams, and Skype meeting, but remains the market leader.
Its popularity has increased to the point where Zoom’s stock prices have almost doubled since the start of the pandemic. Almost all institutions, from government, from private to public entities, have started using the service to run their businesses.
Hackers are entering meetings
The only problem for Zoom was the many complaints about the lack of system security. Hackers were able to quietly break into the meetings, and participant data was quickly sold on the Dark Web.
The Brave Browser, the alternative browser that pays you in crypto when you surf and watch ads, has now designed a solution for itself.
Brave has just presented its own Brave Together videoconferencing solution to users via Twitter. This is the trial version of the online calling application which allows it to be encrypted to prevent third parties from entering video call rooms and accessing confidential data. For now, this is only available in the United States.
Brave’s videoconferencing solution is supported by videoconferencing solution developer Jitsi, who became popular thanks to the famous American whistleblower Edward Snowden.
Good year for Brave Browser
Meanwhile, the Brave browser has become extremely popular in recent months due to its exclusive focus on privacy and the unique earning method via the Basic Attention Token (BAT) which allows you to earn crypto while watching advertising.
They have also received support from famous people in the crypto industry. There was the CEO of Binance Changpeng Zhao as well as the CEO of Gemini Tyler Winklevoss, who all thought Brave was a great idea.
This seems to be another good project for Brave.
