Bitcoin is one step forward again with the latest Opera browser update. The newest version of this browser for Android will support the direct Bitcoin payments to anybody on the internet.
The existing support of the Etheremum currency is introducing support for Bitcoin (BTC), the world’s most popular cryptocurrency. Users now can choose to add the Bitcoin card into Opera wallet, which allows them to make the payment anywhere on the internet. The update also brings support for the Tron blockchain and Tron DApps.
TRON is a popular and quickly growing blockchain. Crypto Wallet in the Opera browser on Android (beta) will now be displaying TRX and TRC10 token balances. It will also allow users to send and receive TRC10 and TRX tokens and access their transaction history.

Web3 support by Opera
Most important in this update is the supporting of Web3 which allows websites to request and receive addresses and for users to make transactions with Bitcoin. So the internet shops from now can instantly ask for the crypto payments and receive them within a few clicks!
Regarding the Web3 wider adoption Julia Szyndzielorz on the Opera blog wrote:
“Web 3 still faces many challenges before it can reach wider adoption. These barriers range from users’ understanding of new terminology, to difficulties in acquiring cryptocurrency, and complicated installation procedures. Before Opera entered the cryptocurrency scene almost a year ago, using cryptocurrencies online and accessing Web 3 required special apps or extensions, which made it difficult for people to even try it out. Our browsers remove that friction.”Opera Blog
We will see when the management of the other browsers understands that these steps will be important to implement in next
