Opera, the first browser in the world with Web 3 support and the first one to introduce built-in cryptographic wallets for mobile and computer devices, announced major updates for its version of its browser for Android.
According to a press release provided by CryptoGlobe, the Norwegian company is adding several new features, including the expansion of direct wallet replenishment throughout the EU, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and Switzerland, which will allow users to buy cryptocurrency directly through the browser. This feature was already available to users from the United States.
Opera provides users with access to cloudless decentralized web networks through support for IPFS, which, according to the company, will change the way you access data on the Internet. The web browser also allows users to register .crypto domain names and wallet addresses to easily send and receive cryptocurrency through a partnership with non-stop domains.
According to a press release, Opera is working with an American cryptocurrency company, Wyre, to provide the ability to easily purchase digital currencies through its built-in browser wallet. Using a Visa or Mastercard debit card, users can buy BTC or ETH directly from their wallets.
Opera currently has over 360 million users worldwide. The press release notes that the monthly active user base increased by more than 40% in the second half of 2019 compared to the same period last year.
