- Opera releases a new browser with a built-in crypto wallet.
- New browser to seamlessly integrate with Ethereum Dapps.
- Browser now available for downloaded on all major operating system.
In a recent announcement, Charles Hamsel revealed the Labs Version Opera Browser. The new browser comes with an in-built cryptocurrency wallet which makes transactions easier between dApp (decentralized app) users and platforms.
The New Browser
As noted by Charles Hamsel, the new browser is a completely separate application from the stable version of the Opera browser.
Unlike other methods which users have to download an extension different from the original browser, the Labs Version is an all-in-one package for dApp users with excellent security for crypto assets held in the browser wallet.
Notably, the platform had earlier announced the release of the same features on its mobile version for Android users back in 11th July 2018. With the release of its Labs Version, which is the desktop version of the same browser, users are now able to sync their mobile wallets with the new desktop wallet, making their crypto assets easily accessible from any device.
On the 7th of September, the browser hit a milestone, being the first browser which allows users to send ‘collectables’ – electronic representations of objects – right from within their browsers.
How to set it up
Those formerly using the mobile version can now access their tokens and collectables via the desktop version by following the information below:
- Download the browser from opera.com
- Open the browser and click on the crypto wallet icon at the sidebar
- Clicking “Reveal the code” will display QR code necessary to pair both devices
- On your mobile, with the Opera mobile browser opened, click the address bar, then click on the QR icon to scan code as displayed on PC
- Wait for wallets to pair and you’ll be all set to go
The new wallet will be joining other browser compatible cryptocurrency wallets for the community. The fact that it’s secured, but most importantly can send and receive tokens and collectibles makes the web browser the best among its peers.
