Mr Beast joins nearly a million other verified Brave content creators, potentially exposing some of his Brave browser subscribers to his native BAT token.
Jimmy Donaldson, alias “Mr Beast”, a prominent YouTuber with 50.2 million subscribers and 8.5 billion total visits, now has a verified Brave browser account, which can expose some of his huge audience to virtual currencies.
Donaldson is not new to the world of crypto coins and is believed to have made a considerable amount of money through investments in crypto coins. The star previously presented videos discussing cryptology before his channel exploded in popularity and he allegedly bought a $100,000 car using his cryptology profits. However, his account was later purged of all content related to virtual currencies.

Mr Beast also spoke on the KEEMSTAR podcast, another popular YouTuber, about how he almost lost his BTC due to a burglary at home, but managed to move the funds to a new wallet.
With the rise in prices of Bitcoin and other crypto currencies, the famous YouTuber seems to be returning to the world of crypto currencies, becoming a verified content creator of the Brave browser. This will allow visitors to your channel to support it with BAT tokens, the native token of the Brave browser.

Mr Beast is far from being the first prominent YouTuber to adopt crypto coins. In 2019, PewDiePie, which once had the most subscribed channel with over 100 million subscribers, began publishing its streams on the Dlive blockchain video platform. However, on May 4, 2020, YouTube signed an exclusive agreement with him, preventing him from using Dlive anymore.
