Mr. Beast follows almost 1 million other confirmed Brave advertisers, possibly introducing any of his users to the Brave browser and its native BAT token.

Jimmy Donaldson, or “Mr Beast,” a popular YouTuber with 50.2 million followers and 8.5 billion cumulative views, now owns a confirmed Brave browser account—possibly introducing some of his vast audience to virtual currencies.

Donaldson is not new to blockchain and is known to have raised a large sum of money from cryptocurrency investments. The star previously hosted videos talking about crypto until its channel erupted in success and allegedly bought a $100,000 car from its crypto earnings. However, his account was later purged of all content relevant to virtual currencies.

Mr. Beast also talked on KEEMSTAR’s podcast about how he nearly lost his BTC due to a house break in, but managed to transfer the money to a new wallet.

With Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies rising in price, the popular YouTuber seems to be making a return to crypto by being a certified Brave browser publisher. This will encourage viewers to tip their BAT token channel—the native Brave crypto browser.

Brave, founded by JavaScript developer Brendan Eich, has increased in popularity over the last two years, drawing nearly 1 million publishers and more than 24 million active monthly users. The browser actually has 528,756 YouTube, 126,740 Twitter and 69,000 blogs and Twitch publishers.

The inclusion of Mr. Beast to Brave’s growing list of publishers has those in the group expecting significant price spikes for BAT tokens.BAT tokens are currently priced at $0.254 apiece, up 9.5 per cent over the last 24 hours.

Mr Beast is a long way from the first famous YouTuber to endorse crypto. In 2019, PewDiePie, which once owned the most subscribed channel with more than 100 million viewers, started hosting its streams on the Dlive blockchain video network. However, on 4 May 2020, YouTube reached an exclusive contract with him, stopping him from continuing to use Dlive.
