Microsoft tests crypto wallet
Microsoft is reportedly adding a Crypto Wallet feature to its Edge browser so users can store, send, and receive bitcoin cash as well as NFTs.
References to Microsoft internal testing, according to “Windows Central,” imply that the new Crypto Wallet capability is still being developed.
The crypto wallet is “integrated into Edge, making it easy to use without installing any plugin,” and it can handle a variety of cryptocurrencies. Moreover, it will monitor transactions and variations in the value of each of your currencies. On the “explore” page, you can read cryptocurrency news items, and under the “assets” tab, you can view your NFTs. As the wallet is “non-custodial” (sometimes referred to as “self-custodial”), you alone are in control of and accountable for the recovery keys and passwords that allow access to your money. Microsoft won’t be able to re-enter you if you forget your login credentials.
