Monero (XMR) has introduced a web-based wallet to Tor web browser. This was made known through a Reddit post on the 28th of August.

The New Web-Based Wallet For Tor Web Browser

Due to the popular demand from the Monero community of users,, an open-source, client-side wallet provider, offers its users a web-based wallet through Tor web browser. The new wallet will aid Monero holders to send the cryptocurrency through a tor-enabled browser for more anonymity.

The new web-based wallet will further aid the partnership of Monero and Tor browser, thus expanding the community of users of the two firms.

xmrwalletdatuxds.onion is the address to the web wallet, an intentional choice of the team because of its easiness for remembrance.

Meanwhile, there are some specific steps to be taken before using the wallet, because Monero was not originally made to be integrated with Tor.

According to, the Xmrwallets.onion web-wallet would be very beneficial to darknet marketplace users as it will aid easy utilization of the available services.

Monero (XMR) and Tor Browser

Monero (XMR ) is an open-source Cryptocurrency created in April 2014 that focuses on fungibility and decentralization. It uses obfuscated public ledger that aids privacy. Transactions via Monero is only noticed by the parties involved; the outside party cannot see the details of wallet, amount and destination.

Tor project is software created to protect web users by bouncing their communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world. This gives anonymity and block trackers of web users activities.

Notably, the Tor project launched the beta version of its Android browser on the 10th of September. It is an experimental version. The Tor Browser for Android requires the installation of a proxy application called Orbot; this connects the browser to the Tor network.

Another browser that has cryptocurrency wallet integration is Opera. The wallet allows sending and receiving collectables as recently added to its features on September 7.
