Opera, the popular internet browser announces Web3 fueled crypto browser for iOS devices—mainly iPhones and iPads. Crypto Browser will allow users to use dapps, games, and metaverse platforms – and has an unrestricted Crypto Wallet to guard. With a non-wallet wallet, you only control your private keys, and no third party is involved or has access to the wallet.
This comes months after the company first unveils the browser for Windows, Mac, and Android. Opera says they build this browser for those who are familiar with cryptocurrencies already as well as newcomers. The app’s built-in crypto wallet supports Ethereum, Polygon, and Celo blockchain technology and Opera plans to integrate more ecosystems.
Users can purchase crypto using fiat currency and exchange, and send and receive supported tokens. Users can also integrate their existing crypto wallets, provided they’re compatible with Ethereum Virtual Machine, into the browser’s built-in wallet.
Opera’s crypto browser also comes with direct access to decentralized exchanges – including over 7,000 Polygon (Blockchain)-based services.
“The interest in Web3 is continuing to grow. The Opera Crypto Browser Project was built to simplify the Web3 user experience that has often been bewildering for mainstream users. Opera believes Web3 has to be easy to use in order to reach its full potential and mass adoption,” said Jorgen Arnesen, EVP Mobile at Opera.
