The Crypto Wallet sidebar panel syncs with your Opera for Android Crypto Wallet.

You can make transactions with the Crypto Wallet sidebar panel on Opera for computers and confirm the payment with your Opera for Android browser.

Your keys, collectibles, and tokens in your Opera Crypto Wallet are accessible on both Opera browsers for computer and Android. Your wallet keys and its backup phrase never leave your phone and remain secured by your phone’s on-device storage.

Creating an Opera Crypto Wallet

Before using the Crypto Wallet sidebar panel in Opera for computers, you will need to create your own Crypto Wallet in your Opera for Android browser.

To create your Opera Crypto Wallet:

  1. On your Opera for Android browser, go to Settings.
  2. Tap Crypto Wallet.
  3. Tap Open wallet.

Your Crypto Wallet is ready. Simple! You will now be able to access it directly from the main menu (Opera button).

A 12-word backup phrase, also known as a seed phrase, will be created for you. You will use this phrase to sign back in to your Opera Crypto Wallet. It is very important to keep this phrase safe and secure. Opera will never ask for your backup phrase.
