The company has announced that the web browser Opera has launched a built-in cryptocurrency wallet on its Android app which could now facilitate transactions for cryptocurrencies. The company made this announcement at a blockchain event where it asserted that initially the wallet will support Ethereum and later it would begin supporting other currencies as well.
Users can use cryptocurrencies by downloading Opera and then it purchased some Ether tokens for storing them. Users will be able to access a selection of mini apps inside the browser. Opera had officially announced in July. Although the prices of the digital currencies have nosedived, this move could be considered as a silver lining.
With this, Opera has become the first browser which has supported cryptocurrencies on its paltform.
The latest version of this browser will enable the users to interact with dApps (decentralized) apps and facilitate transactions. Through this one can also manage his identity.
“Our hope is that this step will accelerate the transition of cryptocurrencies from speculation and investment to being used for actual payments and transactions in our users’ daily lives,” Opera executive VP Krystian Kolondra quoted.
A lookback into history would help you know that Opera had announced that it was developing an Android version of this which would support a built-in wallet back in July 2018. The company had also told that it was developing a feature that would synchronize and allow users to access wallet from their desktop browsers.
