[News] Opera Crypto Wallet: First Browser With Built-In Crypto Wallet

Hello, Mi Fans!

After introducing the new anti-cryptocurrency mining feature in January, that prevents smartphones from being secretly misused by attackers to mine cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, The Opera web browser for Android is launching a private beta version that will include a built-in crypto wallet and will soon be able to hold your cryptocurrencies. The system, now in beta, lets you store crypto and ERC20 tokens in your browser, send and receive crypto on the fly, and secures your wallet with your phone’s biometric security or passcode.

Highlights:-
  • The crypto wallet is available only in private beta for Android users.

  • The crypto wallet supports Ethereum Web3 API for Decentralised apps (Dapps) usage.

  • It allows users to send and receive cryptocurrencies wallet-to-wallet.

Crypto Wallet:-
Opera’s crypto wallet will support Ethereum Web3 API and will be integrated with a "default WebView" on top. Opera with Crypto Wallet also supports tokens and digital collectibles and automatically presents them to the user. The feature could allow for micropayments in the browser and paves the way for similar features in other browsers.


Anyone who uses current crypto wallets will notice that Opera with Crypto Wallet’s UI is simpler. Typical wallets require the user to create new PIN codes or passwords. Opera instead relies on Android’s secure system lock to sign transactions from the Crypto Wallet, so users don’t have to learn any new codes to start using the wallet.

Try It Out:-
In order to join the private beta, you need to go to this link:


You will need a Google or G Suite account.

Payments With Cryptocurrency:-
It supports online payments with cryptocurrency where merchants support exists. Users that choose to pay for their order using cryptocurrency on Coinbase Commerce-enabled merchants will be presented with a payment request dialogue, asking them for their signature. The payment will then be signed and transmitted directly from the browser.


Summary:-
While it’s still early days for this sort of technology it’s interesting to see a mainstream browser entering the space. Don’t hold your breath on seeing crypto in Safari or Edge but Chrome and other “open source” browsers could easily add these features given enough demand.
