Opera is introducing important updates to its Android blockchain browser

Web 3.0 ready

Opera was the first browser to introduce Web 3.0 browsing features and a built-in cryptocurrency wallet in all of its mobile and desktop browsers. The Norwegian company is now adding some new features that take the browsing of the blockchain network to a new level. Opera currently has 360 million users worldwide.

Opera users for Android have just got a taste of the future: after rolling out seamless cryptocurrency wallet top-ups in Scandinavia and the United States, Opera is now extending this feature to the rest of the EU, as well as Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and Switzerland.

Opera users now also gain access to the decentralized network of the future thanks to IPFS support, which is redefining how data is stored on the Internet. They can also now send and receive cryptocurrency transactions more easily by registering wallet addresses ending in .crypto in a manner similar to .com or .org domains.

Eliminate Obstacles to Widespread Cryptocurrency Adoption

The next step in Opera's strategy is to eliminate the obstacles associated with the use of connected block technology. In December 2018, the Norwegian company introduced the first blockchain browser - Opera for Android, with a built-in cryptocurrency wallet and dApp explorer. Opera then added a built-in cryptocurrency wallet to the desktop browser as well as the iOS browser. Later, the possibility of topping up the wallet with cryptocurrencies was introduced in Scandinavia and the United States. Now is the time for the rest of the regions.

To make it easy to buy cryptocurrencies directly from your browser wallet, Opera has partnered with Wyre, an American cryptocurrency brokerage firm, Android mobile Opera users in most countries can now buy Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) with a card Visa or Mastercard debit card.
