Norwegian vendor Opera Software adds support for the built-in crypto-currency purse functionality to the desktop version of the browser. Writes with reference to the developers the decision was made due to “overwhelming positive feedback from the crypto community and users of the cryptocurrency wallet in Opera for Android”.

To gain access to the wallet on your personal computer, you must connect to the mobile version of the browser using a QR code, that is, extensions installation is not required. The smartphone will continue to be a key device designed to store private keys and transaction authorization using the fingerprint scanner.

“Introducing cryptocurrency wallet directly to the browser, we got rid of the need to install complex extensions or a specific application”, commented the announcement of the product lead of Mozilla Crypto Hamel Charles (Charles Hamel). “Making PC browser open to cryptocurrencies, we are another step closer to the massive penetration of crypto and Web 3.0”.

According to Christian Kolondra (Krystian Kolondra) EVP of Opera Browsers, the company really has developed a long-term strategy that focuses on the growing demand for embedded cryptocurrency services:

“Being part of the Opera, we try to stay at the forefront of innovation. Our next task is to make the integration with cryptocurrency mass. We believe that the blockchain has the potential to transform the Internet of the future, and expect big changes in the coming years.”

Mobile Opera browser with built-in cryptocurrency wallet was released in July in closed beta. The application only supports the live and assets standards ERC-20 ERC-721. The developers claim that in the future the range of supported cryptocurrencies will be expanded.
