Opera Crypto Browser, a Web3-focused project for facilitating navigation across decentralized applications (DApps), games and metaverse platforms, has announced a partnership with Coin98, a Southeast Asia-based decentralized finance (DeFi) platform, to bolster Web3 accessibility. Following the integration of Coin98, users of Opera’s Crypto Browser will be able to tap into the platform’s range of multichain nonfungible tokens (NFTs), decentralized exchanges (DEXs), cross-chain bridges and asset swaps as well as the ability to stake and lend their cryptocurrency portfolios, as per a Thursday announcement.With Southeast Asia’s reputation as an online technology hotspot — with the world’s largest number of internet users — and a region with a burgeoning young population and increasingly active crypto community, the collaboration is poised to bring Opera’s Crypto Browser one step closer to its objective of promoting mass cryptocurrency and Web3 adoption. Commenting on the development, Susie Batt, crypto ecosystem lead at Opera said:”With over 340 million users worldwide, it is critical that we encourage mainstream adoption by supplying products and services that everyone can use.”Opera has been a prominent figure in the cryptocurrency industry for some time, and it was the first major browser to accept Bitcoin (BTC) payments in 2019. In January 2022, Opera launched the Crypto Browser project, a Web3-oriented initiative for making it easier to discover DApps, games and metaverse platforms.Related: Opera browser enables direct access to BNB Chain-based DApp ecosystemAs part of the project, the browser expanded blockchain support for around nine major blockchain networks including Bitcoin, Solana (SOL), Polygon (MATIC), StarkEx, Ronin, Celo, Nervos Network, and BNB chain. Earlier this year, Opera partnered with Yat, a service that enables the creation of emojified web addresses or URLs.Čítaj viac
Crypto-friendly browser Opera integrated BNB Chain, a decentralized blockchain ecosystem formerly known as Binance Smart Chain, to enable BNB Chain-based decentralized apps (DApps) on Android, iOS and desktop versions of its Crypto Browser.The integration will enable Opera’s 350 million users to purchase the BNB (Build N Build) token with fiat and send and receive it via the built-in Opera crypto wallet, as well as access DApps on the BNB Chain ecosystem. The list includes decentralized exchanges (DEXs) like PancakeSwap, 1inch and BiSwap as well as decentralized finance (DeFi) products like DRIP Venus, Tranchess, Treehouse, ApeSwap and AutoShark Finance.The Opera Crypto Browser’s BNB Chain integration follows the beta release of a Web3 browser for iOS devices, iPhone and iPad, in April. Opera began the Crypto Browser project earlier this year to focus on Web3 and facilitate navigation across DApps, games, and metaverse platforms. The browser company has since expanded support for nine major blockchain ecosystems: Bitcoin, Solana, Polygon, StarkEx, Ronin, Celo, Nervos Network and now BNB Chain.According to BNB Chain’s Patrick Degenhardt, the primary aim of the Binance Chain community is to create the infrastructure for the “world’s parallel virtual ecosystem” and entice the next billion individuals into cryptocurrency. He added that “boosting the adoption of digital assets and blockchain technology requires major efforts on Web2 and Web3 integration.”Related: Opera Crypto Browser is now available on iPhone and iPadWhile commenting on the latest development, 5ire’s founder and CEO Pratik Gauri told Cointelegraph that the browser company had “the foresight back in 2018 to begin building their product in compliance with Web 3.0 standards.” He believes that this is a game-changer because if Opera’s security systems prove to be reliable over time, many investors and day traders will want to use its browser instead of others, adding that:”And that is the very intent of Web 3.0. To have personal data belong to the individual, not to have big data corporations make billions off of your day and your created content and you get nothing. Second, if the system is secure, with a great UX, they will rule the markets when it comes to the public’s transformation to Web 3.0.”Opera has been a part of the cryptocurrency space for a long time, and it became the first major browser to accept Bitcoin (BTC) payments in 2019. According to Opera’s Jorgen Arnesen, The Crypto Browser is designed to appeal to both seasoned and new crypto users and targets the growing interest in Web3.Čítaj viac

Jorgen Arnesen, EVP Mobile at Opera stated:“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 announcement further highlighted the need for carbon-neutral solutions with low gas fees, which stands as one of the main reasons for choosing Polygon over the Ethereum blockchain.Related: Brave to integrate with Solana blockchain on its privacy-enabled browserBack in Nov. 2021, Opera competitor Brave browser integrated Solana blockchain to strengthen its DApps capability.We’ve partnered with @solana to integrate it into the browser and make it the default for DApp support.

Opera announced a partnership with Yat, a platform that allows the creation of emoji-based web addresses (URL), for integrating the emoji system in Opera’s browsers across all operating systems. Celebrating the announcement, the duo launched an event to distribute seven nonfungible tokens (NFTs) from legendary NFT artist Fvckrender valued at a floor price of 2.89 Ether (ETH). Tech startup Yat’s NFT project allows internet users to own personalized strings of emojis and use them as universal digital identifiers and wallet addresses. Recently, Opera released the beta version of its new Crypto Browser Project. The integration allows Opera users to surf the web by entering a string of emojis into the URL bar instead of letters and words. The “emojification” of Opera, as the company calls it, is a “new, easier and more fun” way to find and be directed to Yat pages, according to Jorgen Arnesen, EVP Mobile at Opera.”The partnership marks a major paradigm shift in the way the internet works. Through the integration with Yat, Opera users are able to ditch .com or even words in their links and use emojis to be directed to websites.”Emojis embedded on web pages will link to the corresponding “y.at/” page automatically. Famous artists and celebrities were among the first to invest in and use their Yat emoji web addresses, simply called Yats. For example, rapper Lil Wayne (y.at/alien-musical note) whose Yat page directs users to his record label’s site and DJ Steve Aoki’s (y.at/birthday cake-musical note) that takes users to his website. To mark the integration’s launch, Yat and Opera are hosting a scavenger hunt for participants to compete for seven commissioned Fvck Crystals NFTs from NFT artist Fvckrender.The rumors are true…Seven brilliant heroeswill have the chance to win seven beautiful FVCK_CRYSTALS//from the Yativerse.The current floor is 2.75 ETH.Make sure to follow us and turn onnotifications so you don’t miss out on the rules of this incredible game… pic.twitter.com/ZqGQuWhxoT— Yat (,) (@whatsyouryat) February 10, 2022Related: Opera to integrate with Polygon, opening DApp ecosystem to 80M usersAt the time of publication, Yat had a trading volume of 411 ETH ($1,263,422) on OpenSea.Čítaj viac
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
