Opera Brings Solana ($SOL), Polygon ($MATIC), and Others to ‘Tens of Millions’ of Usersadmin
Popular pro-cryptocurrency web browser Opera has revealed its built-in crypto wallet and web 3.0 browser, has announced it’s adding support for several major networks, including Solana ($SOL), Polygon ($MATIC), Axie Infinity’s Ronin, Nervos, Celo, and IXO.
According to an announcement the firm published, Opera’s “tens of millions” of active users can start benefitting from access to decentralized applications through these blockchains using its built-in cryptocurrency wallet.
The new launch, Opera added, extends access to Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchains and Ethereum scaling solutions with smaller transaction fees than the cryptocurrency’s layer-one blockchain.
Opera touted in its announcement that by “gaining entry to these blockchains, users can benefit from lower gas fees and faster transactions” while minimizing their carbon footprint and taking advantage of Ethereum’s security.
Jorgen Arnesen, EVP Mobile at Opera, said:
Ultimately, Web3 is on its way to becoming a mainstream web technology and users won’t need to know they’re interacting with it. They need to get a superior user experience and a true benefit.
The company launched earlier this year its Crypto Browser Project on both mobile and desktop devices, providing users an “all-in-one, fully dedicated Web3 browsing experience.” As CryptoGlobe reported, it announced its plan to support Solana late last year.
Notably, Opera is also launching support for Axie Infinity’s Ethereum sidechain Ronin, allowing the game’s players to monitor their non-fungible tokens (NFTs) through its browser.
