Edge Browser to Test Built-in Crypto Wallet: Store Ethereum and More

• Microsoft is testing a built-in crypto wallet for its Edge browser.
• The wallet likely supports Ethereum, DAI, USDC and USDT.
• Other browsers such as Opera and Brave have also integrated cryptocurrency features.

Microsoft Testing Crypto Wallet

Microsoft is testing a built-in crypto wallet for its Edge browser, as reported by software preservationist Albacore in a March 13 tweet. The web browser may soon support Ethereum and other digital assets like DAI, USDC and USDT.

Other Browser Wallets

Opera has supported cryptocurrency since 2018 while Brave has included its own crypto wallet with native Basic Attention Token (BAT). Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome users can install third-party wallets like Metamask or MEW.

Crypto Donations Discontinued

Mozilla stopped accepting crypto donations to its own organization in 2022 following backlash. Vivaldi has stated it will never create a cryptocurrency.

Wallet Features

The Edge wallet includes trading integration with Coinbase and Moonpay, support for other extension wallets through its settings panel, and an „explore“ tab that features crypto news stories from around the web. It is non-custodial which means users have complete control of their funds and Microsoft cannot help users recover their wallet.


Microsoft warns that users must use their own crypto balance within the wallet and says it will not cover any lost funds due to the project’s confidential nature
