Opera Is the First Major Browser To Allow Bitcoin Payments and Integrates Tron (TRX) dApps

    The latest Android app upgrade for the Opera web browser adds support for Bitcoin (BTC) and Tron (TRX) e-commerce integration that allows users to make payments directly from the built-in wallet, as well as Tron blockchain dApp interactions.

    A new update has been recently announced by Opera. Now, the popular web browser will allow its users to pay with Bitcoin (BTC) and Tron (TRX) directly from it. According to the latest announcement, the users can now use cryptos on e-commerce sites and receive the tokens to the built-in crypto wallet of the program.

    Charles Hamel, the head of cryptocurrencies at Opera, affirmed that the idea is to open up the browser to more blockchain ecosystems, not only Bitcoin. He affirmed that the solution devised by the company is made for people who have cryptos and don’t want to just keep them there. This, he believes, will also help the market to become more well-known and popular.

    Initially, some of the features present in the update were originally a part of the beta testing version of the software. At the time, however, the software was being tested with Ethereum.

    Despite this being a huge update for the crypto community, however, it comes with a grain of salt. Opera only has 3% of the total browser market share, which is dominated mostly by Google Chrome. While this is an important update, it is also true that there is a long road ahead.

    Opera Is Getting Ready For The Future

    The company has been really focused recently on the so-called Web 3 and developing for it. For instance, Opera Touch, the mobile iOS version of the browser, now supports apps based on the Ethereum blockchain. The software also has the Web 3 explorer, which is used to make transactions on the web 3.
