Brave Wallet detection

We recommend that Dapps use a Brave Wallet button and that they treat Brave Wallet like MetaMask.

Web3Modal is a useful library for handling this for you.

Compatability with MetaMask

Since Brave Wallet aims to be compatible with MetaMask's exposed API, we set window.ethereum.isMetaMask to true.

Synchronous detection

const isBraveWallet = window.ethereum.isBraveWallet
console.log('Brave Wallet: ', isBraveWallet)

Asynchronous detection using web3_clientVersion

const isBraveWallet = await window.ethereum.request({
method: 'web3_clientVersion'
}).then((clientVersion) => {
return clientVersion.split('/')[0] === 'BraveWallet'
})
console.log('Brave Wallet: ', isBraveWallet)

Or:

const isBraveWallet = await window.ethereum.request({
method: 'web3_clientVersion'
}).then((clientVersion) => {
return window.ethereum.isMetaMask && clientVersion.split('/')[0] !== 'MetaMask'
})
console.log('Brave Wallet: ', isBraveWallet)
