Opera is a desktop browser and they are planning a very exciting launch. They are going to add a cryptocurrency wallet to their browser and this is going to add a lot of functionality to the whole thing. They have shared a press release stating the exciting news and the firm already has a crypto wallet which is a part of their beta version. Now it looks like things are moving along nicely as the original version was only for android. This launched in July and ever since then it has been a huge success. Opera has stated that it is strong interest that is helping them to make these moves and that they have also received an overwhelming response from the community. They have stated that they are going to keep on making changes to their wallets but there is no telling how far the whole thing can go. The new desktop version will give users the chance to connect their browser to their wallet and this will be done via the mobile app or even by a QR code. This is a system which Opera have been proudly using for quite some time now and they are even synchronising desktop-mobile applications for quite some time now. This is especially the case when you look at the fact that they have Whatsapp as a website client. If you were to use a desktop-connected mobile system then this would ultimately mean that the wallet can implement the phone as a secure system. This would give users the chance to sign their transaction by using their own fingerprints. They would not have to enter a password through their browser and this also means that the whole thing is way more secure.
On top of this, you will also find that the whole thing is much more efficient. The Android wallet at the moment is completely controlled by the user. This ultimately means that any keys are stored on the phone rather than on a central server. When you look at the mobile app, you will see that the desktop client supports tokens and you can also use your digital collectibles on there as well. This is a product lead that the new browser is integrating and it also means that there is going to be another step in making cryptocurrencies compatible with Web 3.0. In late June there were also rumours that a brokerage and a trading app would be able to offer native wallet functionality and then the firm posted an ad for engineers. There is no telling whether the two are related but it is certainly interesting to see how the whole thing is going to develop.
