  • Web browser Opera detailed the launch of their new feature allowing Bitcoin payments to be made.
  • Additionally, it has enabled for a Bitcoin (BTC) and Tron (TRX) card into the built-in crypto wallet.  


The Web browser Opera announced that they now facilitate making payments with Bitcoin (BTC) directly inside the browser.

Opera detailed the update in a press release, noting that their 350 million users can now send and receive BTC directly from the browser, as well as use the cryptocurrency for purchasing goods and services on e-commerce websites.  

Furthermore, the browser now enables adding a Bitcoin and TRON (TRX) card into the built-in Crypto Wallet to keep track of the cryptocurrency owned.  

The head of crypto at Opera, Charles Hamel,   commented on the new feature launch:

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.
