Opera: the browser that loves cryptocurrencies
Opera has been Presenting the cryptocurrency wallet on its Android version for over two years, then spread to iOS and the desktop version. It was the first browser to do so, initially only supported Ethereum. In June of last year, it introduced support for Bitcoin and Tron and the ability to transact with Bitcoin.
With this update, Opera goes one step further towards simplifying functionality with the aim of facilitating the use of cryptocurrencies and targeting a wider audience. And who knows if it will not contribute to the massive adoption of cryptocurrencies.
It is in direct competition with Brave, the browser that rewards its users with BAT tokens. Brave apparently goes a step further: in recent days, in fact, he has announced a association with exchange Binance to exchange cryptocurrencies directly from the browser.
In any case, the two browsers prove to be at the forefront and ready to intercept users who use cryptocurrencies.
