Opera, the Norway-based company behind the popular internet browser, has released the beta version of its new Crypto Browser Project. This crypto browser aims to facilitate the user experience of browsing DApps, games and metaverse platforms by offering direct access to Web3 services for Windows, Mac and Android users. The current Opera browser boasts a no-login VPN, and native ad & tracker blocker that help to make it secure. According to a release shared with Cointelegraph, the new crypto browser will maintain these security features, while integrating direct access to decentralized exchanges, NFTs and gaming DApps, as well as Telegram and Twitter support. Jorgen Arnesen, EVP Mobile at Opera, stated that the main goal of the project is to help crypto and Web3 become more mainstream:“Opera’s Crypto Browser Project promises a simpler, faster, more private Web3 experience for users. It simplifies Web3 user experience that is often bewildering for mainstream users. Opera believes Web3 has to be easy to use for the decentralized web to reach its full potential.”A built-in non-custodial wallet will support Ethereum in beta, and thanks to recent partnerships, will soon extend to Polygon, Solana, Nervos, Celo, and naming systems like Unstoppable Domains, Handshake and ENS. Opera’s integration with Polygon (MATIC) is expected to go live in the first quarter of 2022.The wallet supports both fungible ERC-20 standards as well as non-fungible ERC-721 standards, with ERC-1155 coming in Q1 2022. Users will also be able to purchase crypto via a built-in fiat-to-crypto on-ramp, complete crypto-to-crypto swaps and even access a built-in NFT gallery.Related: Ramp expands presence in US with FinCEN regulationAccording to the company, Opera expects to receive feedback from the crypto community on their beta in order to implement any developments “together.”Čítaj viac

On Wednesday, Opera, an internet browser with Web 3.0 application support and a built-in crypto wallet, announced an upcoming integration with Polygon (MATIC). The integration, which is scheduled to go live in the first quarter of 2022, will first open Polygon’s ecosystem to Opera’s over 80 million users on the Android mobile, then to the rest on other devices and platforms. Polygon is a layer two Ethereum (ETH) scaling solution designed for lower gas fees and faster transaction times.Through the integration, Opera users will be able to access Polygon decentralized applications, or dApps, such as Sushiswap, Curve, and Aave, as well as blockchain games and nonfungible tokens platforms such as Decentraland, Opensea, and Sandbox.Jorgen Arnese, executive vice president of Opera Mobile, said the new integration will help “remove the biggest challenge that crypto enthusiasts” face — namely, high gas fees and slow transaction speeds.Arjun Kalsy, vice president of growth at Polygon, added: “With this integration, Opera’s hundreds of millions monthly active users will be able to experience Polygon’s thriving dApp ecosystem and best in class Web 3.0 technology.”Related: Brave to integrate with Solana blockchain on its privacy-enabled browserEthereum scaling solutions such as Polygon have become vital in recent years as the network can only handle about 15 transactions per second. In times of peak network activity, like when celebrities try to drop over 10,000 NFTs all at once, gas prices can soar to absurd amounts. Fees are even higher in decentralized finance protocols such as peer-to-peer borrowing and lending, where multiple smart contract confirmations are required for loan origination.Čítaj viac
