Opera today announced that it is working on bringing its famous crypto wallet to its web browser on PCs. The crypto wallet is currently available on the Opera app for Android mobile web browser.
The company is expected to introduce the built in crypto wallet for its PC web browser in an upcoming Opera update for PC users. With the introduction of crypto wallet to the PC web browser, Opera plans to become the world’s first web browser with a built in crypto wallet.
The crypto wallet allows users to be able to enjoy seamless transactions on the Internet while promoting the adoption of crypto currencies. The built in crypto wallet will utilize the already available mobile app and allow users to purchase things on their desktop and comp;ete the purchases through their smartphone without any hassles.
“By adding a crypto wallet directly into the browser, we removed the need for complex extensions or separate apps,” said Charles Hamel, Product Lead of Opera Crypto. “Opening up the PC browser to crypto marks Opera’s second step towards making cryptocurrencies and Web 3.0 mainstream.”
Once the build in crypto wallet is made available, the users will have to connect the Opera PC web browser to a crypto wallet enabled on an Android Opera browser and scan a QR code.
If users sign in the transactions using their fingerprints then the prints will remain stored on the mobile phones which are protected by the two factor authentication and fingerprint scanning methods.
Opera will also allow users to browser Web 3.0 websites along with letting them use Dapps on their PCs. For our users knowledge Dapps are Ethereum decentralized apps.
Currently Opera plans to provide the web browser for desktops with the support of Ethereum blockchain based cryptocurrency before including the support of other popular cryptocurrencies.
