Microsoft Working on a Web3 Wallet for Edge: Albacore

Microsoft has reportedly started working on a program that would integrate a non-custodial crypto wallet into the company’s basic Edge browser, according to screenshots posted on Twitter by Albacore, an anonymous software researcher from central Europe.

Albacore expressed pessimism, saying: 

“Newest in the gauntlet of questionable upcoming Microsoft Edge features, a crypto wallet not really sure how to feel about this kind of thing being baked into the default browser.”

The shared content shows a cryptocurrency wallet’s user interface, a decentralized app explorer, a status update, and the option to purchase cryptocurrencies using Coinbase and MoonPay. Recent versions of the Microsoft Edge browser already include the feature, but it is laid to rest and inaccessible to consumers.

“[The] Edge team are kings of throwing every imaginable thing at the wall and seeing if it sticks,” the researcher remarked,  “The list of obsolete gimmick features that they tried and eventually removed is quite long.”

Microsoft’s Web3 Venture

Internet Explorer, the first web browser produced by Microsoft, debuted in 1995, exactly in the same year that Opera did. However, while Microsoft lagged and stopped supporting Internet Explorer this past year in favor of Edge, Opera has developed various browser variations and integrated a cryptocurrency wallet, and it has announced that now its users will be able to create their own no-coding NFT in real-time using Alteon Launchpad this year.

Many industries have adopted Web3 and are currently hiring employees to help with its growth, from real estate and finance to gaming and the arts. The Warner Music Group has made it clear that it wants to expand the number of team members that can develop projects for the Web3 ecosystem.

The Binance Charity Scholar Program (BCSP) announced on January 20 that it will offer free Web3 training and educational courses, allowing students studying technology and software to grow continually without being bound by pointless financial restraints.
