Well-known mobile browser Opera has worked had to add support for Bitcoin and Tron on its android crypto wallet.
Opera revealed — July 10 official blog post — that blockchain-based tokens will trade on the Android platform’s 53 beta version that is embedded in the wallet app.
Android Opera users will be able to send and receive BTC, TRX and TRC-10 standard, and webpages will, later on, complete the BTC transactions through requesting and receiving user’s addresses.
The internet browser attributes the latest to ‘an experimental integration of Web 3’. Web3 is an ambitious semantic internet that is yet to be developed which is more open, distributed, and intelligent as it encompasses cryptocurrencies, blockchain use, and decentralized computing.
According to the company’s blog post, Ether and ERC tokens are already integrated into the built-in crypto wallet but bringing the Web 3.0 bitcoin support will allow for the payments functionality instead of relying on the digital assets only for the store of value and speculation.
In May is when Opera launched its built-in crypto wallet support for TRX and TRC-standard token. To cater to its browsers suite, the company has increasingly rolled out multiple decentralized application (DApps), wallet and Web 3.0 developments.
In one of its partnership with Ledger Capital — a blockchain advisory and financial services company— the firm has continued to develop future blockchain applications that serve its products and ecosystem.
Sirin Labs — electronics supplier — is another major player in the sphere of blockchain-powered smartphones. Last winter, the firm released the first smartphone that is based on blockchain, which supports encrypted communications and offers cold-storage crypto wallet.
HTC — a consumer electronics giant — also followed suit this spring by rolling out an in-wallet platform for trading cryptocurrency.
Exodus 1 as well as Exodus 1S smartphones users will be able to efficiently interact with this platform since the phones have the Bitcoin full node functionality.
Samsung also released its blockchain and DApp Software Development Kit just yesterday. Many people are now aware that the South Korean technology giant has the Galaxy S10 — a new smartphone capable of storing private cryptocurrency keys — already on the market.
