Earlier this year, Opera released its cryptocurrency and blockchain enabled browser for Android and PC users. Now his pendant for the iPhone has finally been released, Opera Touch.
Opera Touch allegedly supports the Ethereum (ETH) protocol and the Ethereum Web3 Application Programming Interface (API). This means that the browser supports Ethereum-based distributed applications (DApps) and all ERC-20 tokens, stablecoins, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The browser will also include a crypto currency wallet for storing ethers, the “Opera Crypto Wallet”.
“We believe that all modern browsers should integrate a crypto-wallet,” said the head of the crypto department of the opera, Charles Hamel.
“In response to strong demand from the crypto community, we now make this experience available on iOS.”According to the version, Opera Touch supports all ERC-20 tokens, stable coins and non-fungible (unique) tokens.
Apple iOS users can now download the app from Apple’s App Store, buy Ethereum, send it to their Opera Touch wallet and use it in dapps.
As with the PC and Andoird versions, users can also browse blockchain applications by typing their addresses directly into the URL bar, Opera said earlier. There is also an integrated Virtual Private Network (VPN) that Opera claims to be aimed at protecting and hiding user data from prying eyes.The plans of the Opera for an iOS version of their crypto-browser are hardly a secret. Already in March, it teased that one was on the way and invited an invitation for beta testers.
For this new version, Opera says, it has merged with the cryptographic collector dApp “Marble.Cards”. This application allegedly turns Website URLs into unique trading cards registered as NFTs in the Ethereum Block Chain.
