- Opera’s cryptocurrency Wallet will support TRON and TRC-based coins.
- The company seeks to expand the functionality to its wallet.
The cryptocurrency wallet integrated with Opera browser will support TRON (TRX) and tokens based on TRC standard. Also, the developers say that they may add more coins in the wallet in the future. Currently, the browser supports only ETH and currencies based on ERC-20/ERC-721 standards.
“The first browser with Web 3 capabilities, @opera, is announcing its intention to support #TRX and other #TRC-standard tokens. Opera’s Crypto Wallet will allow hundreds of millions of users to play #TRON games and access TRON #DApps within the browser,” the company wrote on Twitter.
By expanding the list of supported cryptocurrencies, Opera confirms its commitment to making Web 3.0 ecosystem more inclusive and user-friendly. Due to TRON integration, hundreds of millions of Opera users will be able to access dApps based on TRON’s blockchain right from the browser.
“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,” Krystian Kolondra, EVP at Opera, Head of Browsers, commented.
In December 2018, Opera became the first major Android browser to include a native Crypto Wallet and Web 3 explorer. These new features let people make transactions and interact with the blockchain-based internet of the future, also known as Web 3. In April 2019, this functionality was introduced to Opera’s PC browser. The iOS version is currently in beta stage and will be released later this year.
