Opera browser has improved its system, adapting it to market changes. Its latest version for Android offers an encrypted cryptocurrency wallet.
Opera browser is adapting to market demands. The developers have installed a crypto wallet within the browser so that a large majority of Opera’s 322 million users will no longer have to install different application or extensions to operate with crypto payments.
The goal was to create a simpler way to operate with crypto-related transactions. We want to remind you that last year, the team behind the Opera browser developed an anti-mining security component aimed to protect users’ devices. The new system does not require the introduction of new PIN codes or keys to sign and use the wallet’s services. This is possible due to the correlation between the browser and Android’s secure system that signs automatically transactions.
“Having a Crypto Wallet in the browser brings the cash experience to the world of online payments,” claimed Charles Hamel, Product Lead of Opera Crypto, adding that “Paying with the Crypto Wallet is like sending digital cash straight from your phone, and we’ve just made it easier. This opens up new possibilities for merchants and content creators alike.”
The cryptocurrency wallet presently supports just ETH, ERC-20 tokens and ERC-721 collectibles. After a period of investigation and analysis of the new services offered by Opera browser, developers intend to add extra cryptocurrencies.
Furthermore, the browser’s cryptocurrency wallet has integrated the Ethereum Web3 API, an element with which Norwegian leader hope to improve the release of new dApps.
“We believe the web of today will be the interface to the decentralized web of tomorrow,” added Hamel. “By becoming the first major browser to open up to Web 3.0, we would like to contribute to making the internet of the future more accessible. Our hope is that this will accelerate the transition of cryptocurrencies from speculation and investment to being used for actual payments and transactions in our users’ daily lives.”
