Nine figures worth of Solana (SOL) are on the move following a massive crypto whale transfer between two unknown wallets as the Ethereum (ETH) rival secures a partnership with software giant Brave.
First reported by blockchain tracking service Whale Alert, an unknown whale on the Solana blockchain transferred 7,981,517 SOL tokens worth $184,488,088 at the time of the transfer.
The transfer left the first Solana address virtually empty with only 0.002 SOL still sitting in the wallet.
The big whale move comes as Solana announces a partnership with Brave to bring Solana DApp (decentralized application) support on iOS and Android versions of the Brave browser. According to the announcement, Brave users can now connect to Solana DApps through Brave’s built-in crypto wallet without leaving the browser.
Amelia Daly, head of partnerships at Solana Foundation, said that the new integration is important because it gives users browser-based connections to Solana programs, optimized for mobile use.
“Advances in UX and mobile are among the most important ways to onboard new users.”
Brave CEO and co-founder Brendan Eich says,
“Brave is increasingly the browser of choice for the Web3 world, and with the addition of Solana DApp support on mobile, we’re expanding that reach to another key group that is seeking fast and friendly ways to use their crypto on the go.”
Brave first revealed a plan to integrate with Solana in late 2021 but held back on details.
At time of writing, SOL is up nearly 200% from its lows early last month, currently trading for $23.35. Basic Attention Token (BAT), Brave’s native token, is up 52% in the last month, currently worth 0.29.
