Browser Opera which has been in the news quite frequently, in the recent few months, announced that it was all set to support TRON’s TRX and other TRC-standard tokens within its browser. Not only that, but Opera also has its own cryptocurrency wallet which supports Ethereum and TRC tokens.
In March this year, Crypto-News India had reported that after launching a cryptocurrency-enabled browser for Android, Opera will soon launch one for iPhone. News reports stated that the newly launched browser will be called Opera Touch and it will enable one to browser a decentralized web that is commonly referred to as Web 3.0.
Krystian Kolondra, EVP at Opera, Head of Browsers said, “TRON is a popular, quickly developing blockchain with a swiftly growing dApp ecosystem. We are happy to open our browser to it. By opening products to multiple blockchains, we are accelerating the mainstream adoption of Web 3.”
Psyched about the development, TRON founder, Justin Sun said, “We are excited that Opera, a mainstream browser with hundreds of millions of users, will now seamlessly support TRX and other TRON tokens. Soon, Opera users will be able to use dApps on the TRON blockchain.”
Not only that, Opera announced that it was ready to add support for multiple blockchains within the next 12 months.
In February this year, the browser said that it had introduced a new feature to its Android version app that let users purchase Ethereum through the browser. The new service was only offered to residents of Sweden, Norway and Denmark as the services are offered through brokerage firm Safello.
At the time, Frank Schuil, CEO of Safello had said, “With Safello brokerage on the Opera mobile browser for Android, both new and experienced users can now easily transact cryptocurrencies in the most secure and fastest way possible. The functionality to purchase crypto is right at their fingertips.”
