Opera recently announced the introduction of the crypto wallet into their Android Application available on the Play store. It is the first major browser to launch the crypto wallet into their system. The Wallet can be used to interact with Web3 Applications, i.e Decentralized Applications or Dapps.
You can download the latest version of the Opera Browser from the play store and can use the Wallet to interact with the Web3 Dapps which can be used to play games on blockchain or you might want to buy something from an E-commerce store. Even you can send or receive ethereum from one wallet to another, it’s just like sending money but through blockchain.
Ethereum is used as a prior coin for the wallet now, thanks to its prodigious blockchain technology backed up which can be used as smart contracts & Dapps. Though Opera might add more crypto wallet support in the future.
