Opera Browser’s Built-in Crypto Wallet Adds Support for Bitcoin (BTC) and Tron (TRX) on Android

    • After Ethereum and ERC tokens, Opera browser now supports Bitcoin, Tron, and TRC10 tokens
    • It further allows people to use cryptocurrencies to make transactions

    The beta version of the Opera browser for Android’s version 53 now lets you send and receive Bitcoin and Tron. It further enables webpages to make transactions with BTC.

    Announced on July 10th on Opera’s official blog, its built-in Crypto Wallet now supports both Bitcoin and Tron blockchains, another step towards making Web 3 more mainstream.

    The Crypto Wallet already supports Ethereum and ERC tokens and now they are making it more inclusive by supporting Bitcoin and Tron and TRC tokens.

    “Our browsers are Web 3 ready and that this should be the new standard for all browsers,” states the announcement.

    Transacting on the Web with Cryptos

    With this release, Opera’s Android browser’s beta version allows users to send and receive BTC and also access their transaction history.

    Moreover, Opera is also including an experimental integration of Web 3 in its latest version that makes it possible for websites to request and receive addresses. It basically allows people to use cryptocurrency such as BTC to make transactions on the web.

    The same goes for TRX and TRC10 tokens.

    Back in December 2018, Opera was the first major browser to include a native Crypto Wallet. In April 2019, this functionality was introduced to the PC browser and then in June 2019, to the Opera Touch browser on iOS.

    Bringing Cryptos and Web 3 Mainstream

    However, there are still many challenges including users’ understanding of new terminology, difficulties in acquiring cryptocurrency, and complicated installation process that hinders wider adoption of Web 3.

    But Opera is working on those issues. Adding two major blockchains, it says is one step further in making Web 3 more inclusive and user-friendly.

    Opera’s Crypto Wallet is supported only on devices with Android 6.0 or higher version and Windows and Linux PCs and Mac and Opera Touch for iOS.
