Opera’s Crypto Browser is now available for iPhone and iPad, bringing the company’s unique crypto features to Apple’s mobile devices. The browser includes a built-in cryptocurrency wallet that supports Ethereum (ETH) and tokens built on the ERC-20 standard, as well as a “crypto miner” that allows users to earn small amounts of ETH by completing short tasks.
The release of the Crypto Browser for iOS comes just a few months after Opera launched its Android version, which has been downloaded more than 1 million times. The company says that its goal is to make cryptocurrencies more accessible to mainstream users by integrating them into existing products and services.
With the Opera Crypto Browser, users can now easily send and receive ETH and ERC-20 tokens without having to install any additional software or extensions. The browser’s built-in cryptocurrency wallet is automatically configured to work with major decentralized applications (DApps), making it easy to use popular ETH-based services such as Augur, CryptoKitties, and Ethlance.
In addition to the Ethereum wallet, the Opera Crypto Browser also includes a “crypto miner” that allows users to earn small amounts of ETH by completing short tasks. The mining feature is currently in beta and is only available to users who have completed the KYC process on the Opera website.
The Crypto Browser is based on Opera’s existing browser for iPhone and iPad, and uses the same interface and features. However, the addition of the crypto wallet means that users can now access web3 applications and services directly from their mobile devices. This will enable them to use decentralized applications (dApps) and make transactions using blockchain-based assets. It will give users access to a wide range of decentralized applications, which are powered by blockchain technology. This will allow users to perform a variety of tasks, such as buying and selling digital assets, and even participating in online voting.
The launch of the Crypto Browser for iOS is a significant step forward for Opera in its goal to make cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology more accessible to mainstream users. With this launch, anyone with an iPhone or iPad can now start using dApps and managing their digital assets without having to install any additional software.
Opera’s decision to add crypto features to its mobile browser comes as the company looks to position itself as a leader in the burgeoning blockchain space. In recent months, Opera has also launched a number of other blockchain-based products and services, including a Web 3.0-enabled browser for desktop computers and a mobile payments app that supports cryptocurrency payments.
With the launch of the Crypto Browser for iOS, Opera became the first major browser to offer built-in support for cryptocurrencies on Apple’s mobile devices. The move could help to increase mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies by making them more accessible to iPhone and iPad users.
Opera’s Crypto Browser is currently available in a limited beta version, and Opera plans to roll out the full version later this year. In the meantime, users can try out the beta version by signing up on the Opera website.
