Opera releases iOS browser with built-in crypto wallet

Opera has made its latest web browser, including a built-in cryptocurrency wallet, available for iOS, the firm announced Wednesday. With today's release, Opera now has a Web 3-supporting browser across three major platforms - iOS, Android and PC.

The Norwegian browser maker said that like the Android version, the iOS browser lets users interact seamlessly with dApps built on the Ethereum blockchain and supports all ERC-20 tokens, stablecoins and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). 

“We believe that all modern browsers should integrate a crypto wallet,” said Opera’s head of crypto, Charles Hamel. “This will enable new business models to emerge on the web.”

Opera announced it had first started testing the iOS browser, dubbed Opera Touch, in March of this year. It also recently announced it would be adding support for the TRON blockchain.
