Opera, the Web Browser recently backed by Bitcoin Miner, Bitmain, announced they will add an Ethereum wallet to their software.
The firm made the announcement on Wednesday, citing “strong interest” in and an “overwhelmingly positive response” to the private beta for its mobile browser, which now features a built-in wallet that supports both ether and ethereum-based tokens.
“Some users prefer to perform crypto payments or interact with Dapps on their desktop. They can now do so in a simple way by using the same wallet they have on their mobile phone,” the company stated.
The move follows Bitmain purchasing a controlling stake in Opera, who has a major presence in Africa and owns browsers and fintech subsidiaries.
A week later, Opera announced that it was adding a native ethereum wallet to the Android version of its mobile browser, and the firm now says that its next aim is to “make crypto-integration mainstream.”
“At Opera, we try to stay at the forefront of innovation. Our next aim is to make crypto-integration mainstream. We believe blockchain technology has the power to transform the web of tomorrow and expect it to make a big difference in the years to come.”
