Opera Adds Bitcoin Support To Its Android Browser App


As it preps its browser for 2020, Opera has officially added Bitcoin support to its Android crypto wallet. With the addition of Bitcoin and TRON support, users can now make Bitcoin payments and transactions directly in the browser without any extensions.

“With this release, Opera opens its Crypto Wallet to the world’s most popular blockchain, making it possible to send and receive BTC directly from the browser the way one would an image or a music file. This means anyone can now not only send Bitcoin and Ethereum to another person but can also use it while interacting with websites to pay for goods or services,” the company explained in a blog post.

Moreover, the browser now also supports TRX and the quickly growing ecosystem of TRON DApps which can now be accessed in Opera.

According to Opera, the first iteration of the new design, codenamed Squircles, goes beyond the light and dark mode paradigm which has become mainstream, and creates a new, more colorful one with ten new color schemes, a flattened design and smoother edges. The browser has also been redesigned for maximum semantic charge, it added.
