Technology giant Microsoft is reportedly integrating a new feature into its flagship browser, Edge, that will enable users to store, send, and receive cryptocurrencies and NFTs.
The new Crypto Wallet feature was spotted by Twitter user Albacore who tweeted screenshots of the user interface.
The screenshots show the ability to swap, send and buy crypto assets, with crypto exchange Coinbase and web3 infrastructure firm MoonPay displayed as integrated platforms that help you purchase and deposit crypto to your wallet.
While still very much in the early testing phase, Microsoft said during the onboarding process: “This is a non-custodial wallet, meaning you are in complete control of your funds.
“We will not have access to your password and recovery key. It is embedded in Edge, making it easy to use without installing any extension.
“As a tester, you will use your own funds. In the event of loss of funds, Microsoft will not reimburse any loss. This is a confidential project, and no details should be shared externally.”
When pressed for more details, a Microsoft spokesperson wrote: “At Microsoft, we regularly test new features to explore new experiences for our customers. We look forward to learning and collecting feedback from customers but have nothing further to share at this time.”
