Gab is creating its own web browser using Brave’s open-source code, scrapping the BAT token, and replacing it with Bitcoin Lightning Network integration.
Torba says he doesn’t understand the controversy: “The entire point of open source is to allow others to build upon an existing codebase and add more value,” he says, adding that Brave itself “is a fork of the Google Chromium project,” from which it benefited greatly.
“Open-source projects are forked all the time, GitHub even shows the fork count on every repo and the community uses it as a badge of honor. I can’t imagine any legitimate reason why Brendan or anyone else would have a problem with this.”
He forgot the part about how nazism doesn’t add value.
