Opera is working to integrate support for Tron’s TRX and TRC-standard tokens in its browser-based crypto wallet.
After the integration of the TRON blockchain is complete, the browser's over 300 million users worldwide will be able to use the tokens within the browser, Opera said Wednesday.
The integration will also allow users to play Tron games and access Tron decentralized applications (dapps) within the browser, without requiring third-party extensions or applications. There are currently over 400 dapps built on the Tron blockchain, the Norwegian browser maker said, citing data from DAppReview.
The firm further said that it plans to add support for “multiple” blockchains within the next 12 months.
Opera’s cryptocurrency wallet already supports ethereum’s ether (ETH) and other tokens using the network’s ERC-20 standard, having launched last December. At the time, the wallet was available only for its Android web browser.
Last month, though, Opera rolled out a desktop version of the browser for the Mac, Windows and Linux operating systems that included the wallet. The browser/wallet combi is available for iOS devices too, but is currently in beta and is expected to see full release later this year, according to Wednesday's announcement.
Earlier this year, Opera also allowed its Android users to buy ETH cryptocurrency directly from its browser-based wallet through a partnership with Sweden-based regulated crypto brokerage Safello.
