Opera recently revealed its plans to incorporate a cryptocurrency-dedicated browser on its iOS platform, enabling iPhone as well as iPad users to avail an integrated native crypto wallet. The web browser will also add support for Ethereum wallet. The firm stated:

“..after the success of our Crypto Wallet and Dapp explorer in Opera for Android, we have decided to open Opera Touch for iOS to Web 3.”

This latest rollout announcement comes after the web browser disclosed the launch of a similar browser on Android a couple of days ago. Dubbed as Opera Touch, the full-featured crypto wallet is essentially designed to access decentralized apps [dApps] on the Ethereum’s platform and non-fungible tokens seamlessly.

In a statement, the firm conveyed:

“We are taking this step in response to popular demand from the Ethereum community.”

The Opera browser for Android released the crypto wallet in December last year. The Android version of the wallet also featured support for Web 3.

The latest crypto wallet incorporation on iOS and Android are not the only moves that Opera undertook with the fifth largest cryptocurrency, Ethereum. Earlier, the web browser had collaborated with the developer of Exodus and tech giant – HTC and added support for dApps on its platform, earlier in February this year.

The Exodus platform supports payments in Ethereum [ETH] currently and plans to add support for Bitcoin [BTC] and Litecoin [LTC] soon.

HitBTC responds to allegations of insolvency, refutes claims made by Redditors

HitBTC, a Hong Kong-based exchange has been the center of accusations among users on Reddit, Twitter, and other forums. HitBTC users started complaining about issues regarding withdrawal and extensive procedures after one particular user @ProofofReserach put out a thread alleging insolvency of HitBTC.

To put an end to all the accusations, HitBTC has broken its silence with a blog post explaining their side of the story. According to HitBTC, their systems performed well during the winter of 2017-18, however, HitBTC mentioned that due to overwhelming demand for the services, they experienced bottlenecks at an operational level.

Referring to the BitcoinExchangeGuide article, HitBTC responded:

“A widely quoted article, in its entirety, is based on only 2 AML cases. One of them was initiated as part of the investigation into the December, 2018 BTCP security breach, at the request of the coin’s core team. Unfortunately, there is no clear indication of the nature of the second case that can be discerned from the article. The author of the article failed to track the deposit/withdrawal dynamics that did not uncover any irregularities. A simple block explorer or our public System Monitor would suffice for these purposes”

Additionally, referring to the altcoins being added and removed from the platform, the exchange said that they were honored to work with a diverse range of projects, however, since the crypto sphere was still nascent, there were lapses in their judgment in assessing the integration partners. With the above-mentioned prominent cases, HitBTC also addressed other topics.

@ProofofResearch replied to HitBTC’s blog:

“Is there a reason why you’re unable to tell people us where your Bitcoin storage is at? If what I published is as untrue as you claim it is, then providing a wallet address where your Bitcoin funds are stored will go a long way in *proving that*.”
