Opera becoming first major browser to enable Bitcoin payments

22.10.2019 01:15 pm

CoinCorner’s CEO, Danny Scott, commented: “It's great to see a company like Opera getting involved in the cryptocurrency industry. It was actually my browser of choice back in the early 2000s and this innovation may encourage me to move back to them sooner rather than later. Having had a quick play with it, the user experience is fairly straightforward and looks nice. It gives great accessibility to your Bitcoin wallet when browsing the internet - making an online payment for a product with Bitcoin is made easy with just a few clicks. This is definitely a welcome introduction for the Bitcoin industry as user experience is well-known to be something that needs improving to help increase adoption.

I currently don't have enough information on the security aspect of where the private keys are stored for example, to know how secure this is for users. This is something I'll be looking into before using Opera regularly myself, and with that in mind, it would be wise to only keep a small amount within the wallet to use when shopping online”.
