Microsoft is testing crypto wallet functionality in Microsoft Edge

Microsoft is testing an integrated Ethereum crypto wallet feature in its Edge browser for users to store, send, and receive cryptocurrencies and NFTs. The crypto wallet feature was first spotted by a Twitter user who shared screenshots of the user interface.

The wallet is non-custodial and is integrated with Edge’s existing wallet feature for storing payment cards.

During onboarding, testers are prompted to generate a password and a 12-word recovery phrase to secure their assets. This means that the user’s crypto assets will be secured with a password and a reliable recovery method.

After the onboarding process, the wallet will generate an Ethereum address for users to receive funds through the Ethereum network, the beeping computer reported. Users can have multiple Ethereum accounts, allowing them to switch as needed.

Users can log in and access their assets for transfer using known addresses and names.

Additionally, the tech giant has partnered with Consensys, a blockchain software technology company, to offer an integrated cryptocurrency exchange between Ethereum, Dai Stablecoin, Uniswap, USD Coin, and Tether Coin.

Meanwhile, the tech giant is adding 3D avatars to teams starting in May.
