Brave Wallet detection

Compatability with Phantom

Since Brave Wallet aims to be compatible with Phantom's exposed API, we set window.braveSolana.isPhantom to true. Also window.solana is an alias of window.braveSolana.

Synchronous detection

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

Wallet adapter

Brave Wallet has its own BraveWalletAdapter and also compatible with PhantomWalletAdapter. Examples can be found here.

Here is how to add Brave Wallet into example code
