Opera has announced the rollout of its web browser with in-built wallet services across all iOS mobile devices. Although this new version was just released across the said devices yesterday, android users have gotten a taste of the application as far back as January. The app has also been available to desktop users across different operating systems. This latest release is touted as the connecting bridge between users and decentralized applications websites.
Opera users can access different platforms
In the statement by Opera, the app comes with an in-built wallet where users can store basic digital assets that they own. Traders can also connect to platforms like Ethereum to purchase or carry out other crypto-related activities. Any user who intends to use the Ethereum Virtual Machine can do so by restoring it inside the native wallet provided by Opera.
Users can then send in their assets to the wallet, where they will be able to view their balances in real-time. The application also has a crypto corner once a user enters the homepage. Users can access quality news related to NFTs, among other trending topics in the crypto market. The corner also has a live list of digital assets with their price in real-time, gas fees, and airdrops.
The app has protection against crypto jacking
Opera has also hinted that the applicant has an integrated mining support that would help users who intend to mine assets against crypto jacking. Crypto jacking occurs when a hacker or malicious actor deliberately uses a remote idle mining app to mine assets for his gains. Other integrated security measures include an ad blocker and a cookie blocker.
According to a high-ranking officer at the company, the app seeks to provide essential crypto services to both new and experienced traders across the market. He noted that the app was built to help all traders have a seamless and easy trading experience across the market. Finally, he said that the app is easily accessible and should witness mass adoption in the coming months.
Asides from Ethereum, Opera has announced that about seven blockchains will be available on the wallet. The company also intends to provide access to more PoS chains as time goes on. Opera recently inked a partnership with Yat, a firm that allows users to enter emojis into a taskbar instead of the web addresses. Users who intend to browse the Opera app can now do so by entering emojis instead of words.
