On 11th July, Opera, the well-known Internet Browser announced the release of their new cryptocurrency wallet.

Opera’s official account on Twitter tweeted:

“Psst! Opera for Android now has a built-in crypto wallet. You can easily transact with crypto and discover Web 3.0 right in your browser. Learn more: http://opr.as/operaf1fcd”

The most recent release of Opera acquaints a simple easy-to-use digital currency wallet. The new version as of now is accessible in private beta and functions well with the browser.

This implies that Opera’s 322 million client base over all stages will not need an introduction to extensions while dealing with cryptocurrency payments on cell phones.

Last year the developers implemented an anti-mining security framework. This directs that Opera with its newly established cryptocurrency wallet can be easier to use than others. Opera browser is the first browser to introduce cryptocurrency wallet in their system.

Opera depends on Android’s operating system [OS] to provide protection and locks to sign transactions from the Crypto Wallet. This is a plus point for clients, considering they don’t have to make new PIN codes or passwords to utilize the wallet.

Charles Hamel, Product Lead of Opera Crypto said:

“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.”

Currently, the BETA version of Opera on Android only supports Ethereum [ETH] ERC20 tokens and ERC721. The developers have strategized to further add support for more cryptocurrencies in the near future. This will be tested first and after recording a response from the community the app will be developed ahead.

Opera’s Crypto Wallet additionally accompanies built-in support for the Ethereum Web3 API, which might increase expectations that will boost the making of decentralized applications [dApps].

The Opera Crypto Head, Hamel, also states that ‘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.’

The group trusts that this will quicken the change of digital forms of money from theory and venture to being utilized for genuine payments and exchanges in our users ‘daily lives.’
