New Opera DLT browser services will be accessible to most parts of the globe

Opera, the world's first browser to launch distributed ledger technology (DLT)-based Web 3 capabilities plus a built-in digital currency wallet for its mobile and computer customers, has declared that it will add more new blockchain features.

New Opera DLT browser services will be accessed to most parts of the globe including the EU, Mexico, Australia, Hong Kong.

Increasing Cryptocurrency Adoption and Eliminating Middlemen

According to reports, the Opera DLT browser will provide a built-in cryptoasset wallet to its users and will add more new interesting features to the DLT browser so as to improve user capabilities. 

Back in 2018, Coinidol reported that Opera was planning to launch a mobile Beta browser with an in-built crypto wallet.

Now, in order to make the purchase of cryptocurrency easy, Opera and altcoin-brokerage company Wyre, have combined efforts to enable users to buy directly from the browser’s virtual currency wallet. 

Cryptocurrency sellers and buyers from different parts of the world can now access BTC and Ether using debit card services such as a Visa or Mastercard.

Another new feature represented by Opera allows making more user-friendly transactions. Users can now simplify and shorten their wallet address, rather than using a long set of public key numbers that no one can remember. This feature is designed by Unstoppable Domains company that operates domains on Ethereum blockchain. 

Opera browser will now also support the decentralized web through IPFS protocol. This allows both to publish and store data on the web similar to BitTorrent, without relying on a single server. 

Simplifying Crypto Dealings via Blockchain 

Making this feature available in most countries will contribute much to the campaign of making cryptoasset, and DLT  highly adopted, as per Opera Press. The firm wants to remove the snags related to the use of distributed ledger technologies including cryptocurrency.

As a matter of fact, Opera started delving into DLT back in Dec 2018 by rolling out the first DLT browser that had a built-in cryptocurrency wallet, dApp explorer and iOS browser, and then brought easy ways of purchasing digital currencies in Scandinavia and the U.S., the-blockchain reports.
