Opera integrates crypto-wallet to their desktop browser

Ranked one of the best internet browsers with over 332 million users across the globe, Opera browser’s desktop version is now integrated to their cryptowallet that was initially usable only on their mobile application.

They have come up with this idea in order to get the users rid of the effort to install an extra extension to enjoy the facility. Users will now be able to scan the QR code from their mobile application and easily connect their mobile wallet to their browser. They also explained that users can now complete transactions by scanning their fingerprints rather than having to enter their passwords which takes this to yet another level of ease.

As of now, the mobile application only supports ETH and ERC-20 tokens alongside ERC-721 collectibles but the company does seem to have a long-term plan for blockchain and cryptocurrency related developments in order to fulfill various necessities of the people and make cryptos much easily accessible to the world. Opera’s EVP Browsers, Krystian Kolondra, made this very clear while stating:

Our next aim is to make crypto-integration mainstream. We believe blockchain technology has the power to transform the web of tomorrow and expect it to make a big difference in the years to come.
