Opera launched the latest version of their browser, complete with a handy crypto wallet, to fulfill the requirements of the ever increasing tribe of cryptocurrency investors, on Monday.
The browser named as Reborn 3, was designed to improve people’s control over their privacy, security, and to give them access to Web 3.
Opera, in a statement said, “Cryptocurrency and blockchain offer a new level of security for online transactions. A Crypto Wallet functions similarly to a physical wallet in that it not only stores currency, but it houses your identification. It presents a completely secure way for you to identify yourself to websites. Users are able to complete peer-to-peer transactions, bypassing major corporations who previously monopolized these processes. Non-fungible tokens represent entirely unique digital objects that cannot be replicated; you can truly own digital things. Decentralized apps, or dApps, are a possibility for apps to function independent of the device they are accessed on.”
It added, “The Web 3 explorer feature in Opera lets you access applications on the Ethereum blockchain also known as dApps.”
This is not the first time Opera has made an announcement such as this. Last month, the browser had stated, “We are happy to let you know that after the success of our Crypto Wallet and Dapp explorer in Opera for Android, we have decided to open Opera Touch for iOS to Web 3. We are taking this step in response to popular demand from the Ethereum community.”
It had said, “We identified the biggest challenge to be the lack of easy-to-use solutions for crypto. Users were forced to install separate wallet apps which didn’t include full-featured browsers. Setting up such wallets was difficult and browsing the Web with a wallet app is burdensome. We removed this hurdle by integrating an easy-to-use wallet into our Android browser. Now, we are delivering this seamless experience to iOS users.”
At the time Crypto-News India had reported that Opera browser had introduced a new feature to its Android version app that let users purchase Ethereum through the browser. The new service was only offered to residents of Sweden, Norway and Denmark as the services are offered through brokerage firm Safello.
Explaining this development, Frank Schuil, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Safello had said, “With Safello brokerage on the Opera mobile browser for Android, both new and experienced users can now easily transact cryptocurrencies in the most secure and fastest way possible. The functionality to purchase crypto is right at their fingertips.”
