Browser Opera to Add Crypto Wallet to Desktop Version

 In Altcoins

Users of the desktop Opera browser will be able to connect to their Android Opera crypto wallet without installing applications.

Popular internet browser Opera said on Wednesday that will add a built-in cryptocurrency wallet in its version for desktop computers after the success of the crypto wallet for Android mobile devices, that was launched in July.

“Opening up the PC browser to crypto marks Opera’s second step towards making cryptocurrencies and Web 3.0 mainstream,” Charles Hamel, product lead of Opera Crypto, said in the statement.

Users will be able to connect with their Android devices and the Opera crypto wallet by scanning a QR code. At the same time, the keys will be stored on the mobile device.

The desktop browser will allow Opera users to buy cryptocurrencies and store them in the wallet but will have to confirm the transactions on their mobile.

The crypto wallet of Opera for Android is controlled by the users as the keys to the digital assets are stored on their devices, and only they can access them. Currently, the wallet only supports Ether, Ethereum ERC-20 tokens and collectibles, like the CryptoKitties.

Opera has not revealed the launch date yet.

Opera entered the crypto industry in January when it provided a built-in cryptojacking protection to its users. Six months later, the company filed with the SEC for an Initial Public Offering to raise $115 million.
