Opera web browser has added support for Tron (TRX) and its TRC standard tokens on its built-in cryptocurrency wallet according to a press release that was shared today.
The company developed the crypto wallet last year before launching it in December 2018 with support for ether (ETH) and the ability to interact with decentralized applications (DApps).
The crypto wallet boasts Web 3.0 capabilities. “Web 3” is a term that is used to refer to the evolution of the web to a more intelligent, open and distributed web that can integrate decentralized computing, blockchain, and cryptocurrencies.
According to the press release, by supporting another major blockchain, the Opera web browser will allow millions of users that use the browser to access Tron DApps and also play Tron powered games through an integrated user face without the need of third-party extensions and applications.
Krystian Kolondra, the EVP at Opera web browser in a statement noted that by interfacing with several blockchains, the company aims to accelerate the mainstream adoption of Web 3.
Opera’s involvement with crypto and the blockchain began last year. In December 2018 the firm launched a crypto wallet for its Android browser that also had Web 3.0 capabilities. At the time the wallet supported ETH and was able to interact with decentralized applications.
Then in February 2019, the web browser added a service that allowed users in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark to purchase ETH through an Android version of the browser.
Since then the firm has continued to explore different ways of developing future blockchain applications that are incorporated within its products and ecosystem most notably through a partnership with Ledger Capital, a blockchain advisory and financial services company.
The support for Tron comes as welcome news to the platform that saw its CTO abscond his duties earlier this week citing the platform excessively becoming centralized.
