The British YouTuber Tom Scott has unfortunately been at the center of a deception. His image was used on a message that encourages users to send BAT.
And for good reason, some creators have been unknowingly associated with the Brave browser and its cryptocurrency.
In addition, Brave has taken the necessary steps to remedy this.
All suspicious and unverified tweets are automatically stored in the browser for a period of 90 days.
The creator will check Brave accounts before approving any posts on their platform.
Although the user notification process is not yet available on the internet platform, Brave has ensured that it will update this item in the near future.
