Decentralized applications, or dApps, are applications that are based on decentralized systems such as blockchain. The Hong Kong mobile company has announced in tweets that the mobile will now carry a number of dApps. Opera will be launching a dApp that will allow users to make micropayments to e-commerce stores online.

The application will allow users to pay through the Opera browser, utilizing the in-built hardware wallet on the phone. Initially, the browser will only support Ethereum (ETH), but there are plans for Bitcoin (BTC) and Litecoin (LTC) in the coming months.

Another Taiwanese startup has also made it into the list of dApps on the phone. Their application, at first sight, seems to be just another ordinary movement tracker dubbed Numbers. The application will record data of steps taken, sleeping and even driving. What it differs is that it will allow users to monetize the data through its in built market place. Users will be able to sell their data to firms that need it for different analyses purposes.

Phil Chen, the Chief Decentralized Officer at HTC said, “Now not only can users own their data, but it forces companies to be more transparent about how that data is used.”

All in all, the phone is expected to get around 20 dApps in total.
