Opera, a popular web browser for those with slower internet, just started integrating Bitcoin payments into its services.
Shared via a press release to CoinTelegraph, the platform now has a built-in cryptocurrency wallet that supports Bitcoin specifically. This means they can both send and receive the world’s first cryptocurrency on top of use it for buying things at storefronts that accept Bitcoin. On top of this, it also supports the Tron cryptocurrency as well.
According to the press release, one Charles Hamel, the head of crypto at the company, spoke on the matter:
“We believe that opening our browser to more blockchains, including Bitcoin, is the logical next step to making our solution more relevant to anyone who has a Bitcoin crypto wallet and would like to do things with their cryptocurrencies beyond just keeping them in an account.”
Yet another cryptoasset
Worth noting that Bitcoin and Tron were already in beta testing this summer, and the platform has already been able to support Ethereum purchases for some time now.
Finally, Opera has also ensured that Opera’s iOS application is live and can support some Ethereum dApps – a great push forward for blockchain-based creations. According to the publication, Hamel states that this is a motion to ensure that using blockchain-based technologies is easier than ever.
