Thanks to this new update, users of both the Android and iOS versions of Opera and OperaMini now have full protection from bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies mining.

Opera said:

The new anti-cryptocurrency mining feature is activated by default when enabling the ad blocker on Opera Mini and Opera for Android. The ad blocker can be enabled in ‘Settings,' and it will automatically detect and stop the mining scripts written into the coding of a webpage.

This is an amazing addition because cryptocurrency miners scripts embedded in websites is increasingly causing huge problems to smartphones. It works up your handset's processor up to 100 percent, making the phone overheat and draining your battery much faster.
