Opera has come out with a new blockchain-ready browser which has a built-in crypto wallet. The browser is only for Android devices for now and will be also supporting Web 3. This makes Opera the first major browser to bring crypto wallet into the mix.
The software and internet company based out of Oslo, Norway further invited users to come and try their new browser and give Web 3 a try in their blog post. The new browser will enable Android users to experience Web 3, which is being considered the internet of coming times. “Our hope with this launch is that this step will accelerate the transition of cryptocurrencies from speculation and investment to being used for actual payments and transitions in your daily lives.”
The new Opera will be supporting Ethereum for transactions. To try the new Opera, you need to download it from the Google Play Store. But to make actual transactions on the Web 3, you will have to buy some Ethereum and store it in your Opera Crypto Wallet.
Web 3 is largely being seen as the future of the internet and with the new offering; Opera has taken a giant step towards bringing cryptocurrency to the mainstream. It will be interesting to see how the other major browsers respond to this offering from Opera.
