Opera shared a press release of a desktop web browser with built-in cryptowallet with Cointelegraph.

Earlier the company launched a beta version with mobile cryptowallet in July.

 “At Opera, we try to stay at the forefront of innovation. Our next aim is to make crypto-integration mainstream. We believe blockchain technology has the power to transform the web of tomorrow and expect it to make a big difference in the years to come,” - commented  Krystian Kolondra.

The desktop web browser will enable users to synchronize their mobile cryptowallet with desktop browser via a QR code.

“By adding a crypto wallet directly into the browser, we removed the need for complex extensions or separate apps,” said Charles Hamel, Product Lead of Opera Crypto.

 Moreover, the new version provides with even more security by the means of using fingerprints and ability to store keys on the phone rather than on a server.

The app supports ETH, ERC-20 tokens and ERC-721 collectibles, but the team has ambitious plans to implement more cryptocurrencies soon.
