Its new Ethereum based browser tagged as Opera Labs begun the testing phase on the 24th of September. A group of select testers will be able to sample the new offering before it’s released to the general public. Opera Labs lets its users connect with Ethereum DApps and Web 3.0. This will enable millions of its users to access supported tokens and other collectible Dapps like CryptoKitties, Ethereum’s largest cat breeding app.
To put emphasis on security, users will have to pair their Android Opera cryptocurrency wallets with the desktop version in order to authorize transactions. Transactions are confirmed using the phone’s security lock through PIN or fingerprint. The user’s private keys safely are stored on the mobile phone. The phone acts as a hardware wallet without the need for the private keys to be transmitted.
Opera has plans to expand its support to other cryptocurrencies in the near future. Over 332 million users use Opera as their browser of choice. It is the first to integrate ETH support in their mobile browser, which was released last July 11, 2018.
