The Opera web browser for Android is introducing a private beta version that would have a built-in crypto wallet.
This feature was discussed in a press release that was reported on by Cointelegraph.
Opera has already penetrated the crypto sphere, as both their web and mobile browsers have added anti-cryptojacking software since the start of the year.
Product manager Charles Hamel conveyed that by “becoming the the first major browser to open up to Web 3.0,” Opera is making “the internet of the future more accessible:”
“Our hope is that this will accelerate the transition of cryptocurrencies from speculation and investment to being used for actual payments and transactions in our users’ daily lives,” said Hamel.
Opera introduced their Android Opera Mini Browser three years ago, with the goal of expanding its user base to 250 million by 2017. According to information gathered, Opera has a 3.5% usage share for all browsers all across the world, a 4.55% usage share for mobile browsers globally. Opera Mini has a .55% share of tablet browsers worldwide as of February.
