Opera, a web browser with large numbers of users, announced that it is adding support for up to eight blockchain networks to facilitate access to decentralized applications and services (dApps).
Among the projects are Bitcoin, Polygon and Solana, StarkEx, Ronin, Celo, Nervos and Cosmos-based IXO.
Opera is one of the oldest browsers, which has been online since 1995. The company launched its first browser with an integrated Ethereum wallet and some basic Web3 support in July 2018, opening up access to a variety of ERC-20 tokens that power dApps such as as well as the ERC-721 tokens often used for NFTs.
Cryptocurrency support is available in the company's new native Web3 browser, called the Crypto Browser Project, on Android and desktop PCs.
Crypto Browser Project is a standalone browser that comes with built-in dApp support and a non-custodial crypto wallet. It also includes Crypto Corner, an access point to the latest cryptocurrency news, prices, transaction fees, market sentiment, and other crypto-related content.
