Blockchain applications have shown the world the new face of transparency. And most of the big cos are in the race to make integrate it in our daily lives.
Adding to this list, Opera the internet browser maker and financial firm Ledger Capital joined hands to explore new avenues in the field.
Mainly both the companies will be doing R&D into how feasible Blockchain Application is in their existing product line catering to millions of users worldwide.
You might be thinking how blockchain application will add to browser technology, right?
Well, these days we are seeing a lot of news on how malware is being pumped into browsers or servers for mining purposes. This doesn’t harm you directly but would you like the fact that an unscrupulous element is using your entity for its own benefit.
The answer would be a big NO!!
To answer this issue, last year, Opera integrated anti-crypto jacking into their existing ad-blocker program, for both desktop and expanded the same to its mobile browsers.
However, Opera is the first major browser to have an in-app crypto wallet.
One can transact and deal in crypto directly from the browser without the need to install DApp browsers or other crypto wallet extension. Cool isn’t it?
In case you’re confused what’s DApp, it stands for “Decentralised Applications”
This month the Norwegian company launched, LAB’s edition of its browsers enabling the users to authenticate Web 3.0 and DApp transactions using their android phones.
Further, as conveyed by Charles Hamel, Product Lead of Opera’s crypto wallet
“Having a crypto wallet in the browser brings the cash experience to the world of online payments. Paying with the crypto wallet is like sending digital cash straight from your phone, and we’ve just made it easier. This opens up new possibilities for merchants and content creators alike.”
Opera currently has around 322 million users worldwide and generated approx. $129 million in revenue, till the end of the first quarter of 2018.
