Opera has launched the desktop version of its Opera Touch, an app with built-in Ethereum wallet and interactions with decentralized applications (DApps).
“This means wallet keys never leave the users’ smartphones. In practice, whenever they need to identify themselves to a Web 3 website or sign a transaction on the blockchain, users get a notification on their smartphone. They can confirm it in the same way they unlock their system, using, for example, facial recognition or their fingerprint,” the company said.
Opera Touch for iOS will combine easy-to-use Crypto Wallet functionality with support for Ethereum decentralized apps, or Dapps. In December 2018, Opera introduced the Crypto Wallet to the Opera browser for Android.
Opera explains the decision to expand its services to iOS as the result of the successful integration of the crypto wallet and DApp explorer for Android. Last March, the company announced that it will soon equip Opera Touch iOS app with built-in Ethereum wallet and interactions with DApps by responding “popular demand from the Ethereum community.”
