Opera Adds In-Browser Support for Bitcoin and TRON Cryptocurrencies

The world’s leading web browsing firm, Opera, has announced its addition of in-browser support for Bitcoin (BTC) and TRON (TRX) cryptocurrencies. Opera is now the first major browser to enable native support for Bitcoin. Additionally, it was the first to integrate Ethereum and a crypto wallet late in 2018.

One of the most crucial boundaries to cryptocurrency becoming mainstream is accessibility. This is especially true of Bitcoin; the world’s most popular cryptocurrency. Buying and storing it requires complex processes and the need for new software. Opera today has enabled its users to transact in Bitcoin in its Android browser.

According to Charles Hamel, Head of Crypto at Opera browsers:

“The browser is the ideal candidate for integrating cryptocurrencies as it is the gateway to so many things in the user’s life. Content, shopping, financial transactions, social media – adding the ability to upload & download value for all of these use cases is very powerful. Opera is the only browser with this capability.”

Back in December last year, Opera first integrated Blockchain. The Android version was updated back then; to support Ethereum-based decentralized apps (DApps) and payments. At the time, Ethereum co-founder Joseph Lubin said:

“It’s a significant step for one of the world’s leading browsers to add an Ethereum-based crypto wallet and Dapp explorer, and speaks to Opera’s innovative roots and commitment to embracing next-generation technology.”

Moreover, Opera is aiming to be the front runner in the development of the decentralized web. Back in April, the firm extended the Ethereum blockchain functionality to Opera for PC. Furthermore, the firm added support for VPN and synched it with the Android wallet. With this functionality, users could store their keys and safely identify themselves from smartphones.

In conclusion, the firm claims to send Bitcoin now is as easy as to send an image. Additionally, TRON Blockchain mostly used for DApps; can be accessed from the browser.
