Soon, Opera will integrate the Elrond blockchain into its crypto browser. The stated objective is to allow users to access the network via its integrated Opera Wallet.
What is Opera browser
Opera is a cross-platform web3 browser developed by its eponymous company. The browser is based on Chromium, but differs from other Chromium-based browsers (Chrome, Edge, etc.) in particular by its user interface. Opera is available on Windows, macOS, Linux, Android and iOS. There are also mobile versions called Opera Mobile and Opera Mini. Opera users also have access to Opera News, an AI-powered news app.
In addition to these features, crypto browser Web3 announced plans to integrate Elrond blockchain services for over 300 million users. The integration would help Opera users directly access a series of decentralized applications (DApps) and other popular services through the built-in Opera wallet.
The interest of the Elrond blockchain
Elrond is one of the first carbon negative blockchains in Europe. It is clear that its integration with Opera will help millions of new users to access the Web3 ecosystem. It is a scalable blockchain network that offers various infrastructure services for DApps. The blockchain’s adaptive state sharing makes it one of the fastest and most efficient networks.
The goal for Opera is to establish itself as a secure entry point to the Web3 for anyone interested in crypto. Thus, there will be a wallet selection feature that allows users to choose which wallet they want to use to interact with a particular DApp.
The Elrond blockchain is one of the first carbon-free blockchains in Europe. It seems that the trend is towards environmental concerns in the blockchain community. Indeed, a few days ago, the Merge took place. One of the many goals of this event was to make the Ethereum blockchain more environmentally friendly. To do this, it moved from PoS to PoW. Now it’s Opera’s turn to choose an eco-friendly solution.
