Web browser Opera has launched a built-in cryptocurrency wallet on its Android app, the company announced today at a blockchain event in London. The wallet will first support ethereum, with support for other coins likely to come later. Ether investors using Opera would potentially be able to more easily access their tokens using the feature.
Users can use the cryptocurrency wallet by first downloading Opera on Android (it’s not available on iOS) and then purchasing some ether tokens to store inside. From there, users can access a selection of mini apps inside the browser.
Opera first announced it was testing such a feature back in July. By now, cryptocurrency prices have taken a large fall as compared to the price spikes at the end of last year. Previously, Opera indicated its awareness of cryptocurrency and the recent influx of scams by introducing anti-cryptojacking software in its web browsers.
