Getting as many people to experience cryptocurrencies remains one of the key hurdles to overcome. This can only be achieved through collaboration and an open-minded business approach. The Opera Browser developers have decided to integrate support for TRON. This could expose up to 350 million users to this altcoin and its dApp ecosystem.
Opera Browser Likes Cryptocurrency
It’s not the first time the Opera Browser will expose its users to the world of cryptocurrencies. This is the first mainstream browser to incorporate cryptocurrency wallet support for everyone. It initially supported Bitcoin and Ethereum, which remain the two biggest cryptocurrencies based on their market cap. It seemed as if that list would not be expanded upon, yet the developers have something else in mind entirely.
The addition of TRON makes sense, up to a certain extent. It is a popular altcoin with an ecosystem that can rival – or potentially even surpass – that of currencies with a higher market cap. Especially its dApps are of great interest, albeit that technology can also be found within Ethereum. As such, it will be interesting to see how these projects shape up when they can both be accessed through the same browser. A little rivalry has never hurt anyone, especially in this particular industry.
The Benefits of TRON
In the official press release, the Opera Browser team has confirmed it was pleased with the improvements and benefits TRON brings to the table. Particularly the fast and cheap transactions, as well as the focus on dApps are major selling points. Justin Sun added how he considers Opera to be one of the most important software companies in the world. Both projects share similarities regarding their focus on privacy, security, and dynamic capabilities.
It also appears this integration can be beneficial to the BitTorrent project. As Justin Sun owns BitTorrent as well, it is evident there will be some sort of synergy between all of these different entities. What this means exactly for BitTorrent, is rather unclear at this time. With a user base of roughly 350 million consumers across 120 countries, there are many different opportunities and possibilities to explore.
Price Pump Seems Plausible
Announcements like these used to have a big impact on cryptocurrency prices. Following this announcement, it seems plausible to expect a price increase for either TRON, BitTorrent Token, or potentially both. At the same time, it mainly depends on Bitcoin’s momentum, as the world’s leading cryptocurrency dictates the pace for everything else. TRON is no exception in this regard.
