Popular Crypto-friendly internet browser Opera has integrated BNB Chain, a decentralized blockchain, to allow access to BNB Chain-based DApps via mobile and desktop versions of its crypto browser.
As a result, Opera users can now buy the BNB token using fiat money and send and receive it through the browser’s built-in crypto wallet. Users can now also access the various BNB Chain DApps, including popular DEXs like PancakeSwap, 1inch, and BiSwap.
Moreover, Opera users will be able to access innovative DeFi products like DRIP Venus, Tranchees, Treehouse, ApeSwap, and AutoShark Finance.
Opera crypto browser and Web3
Apart from the BNB Chain integration, Opera now also supports web3 GameFi DApps like StarSharks, Thetan Arena, StarryNift and SecondLive, in addition to NFT applications like Galaxy, NFTrade and Galler.
The build-up to the release
The Opera Crypto Browser’s BNB Chain integration didn’t disappoint on its much-awaited launch in April on iOS, which opened the service to millions of new users worldwide. This came after the original beta release of the browser on Mac, Windows, and Android in January.
What to expect from this partnership
Being one of the most popular blockchain ecosystems in the crypto space, BNB Chain commands over 4+ million weekly unique active users, 36 million weekly transactions on average and more than $13 billion in total value locked (TVL) within its Decentralized Finance (DeFi) ecosystem.
The network also benefits mainly from its eco-friendly Proof-of-Staked Authority (PoSA) consensus mechanism, making it less energy-consuming with ultra-low-cost and instantaneous transactions. Opera boasts 350M monthly active users globally, making this partnership a massive boost in Web3 adoption.
What else about the Opera browser?
In addition to allowing access to BNB and Web3 DApps, the Crypto Browser also features “Crypto Corner,” a news and data aggregator and bespoke start page featuring live crypto updates, crypto-asset price reporting, as well as crypto events, airdrops, and much more. Moreover, users can access Web3 apps and domains as easily as any Web2 domain by typing the address into the address bar.
Therefore, with the Opera Crypto Browser, existing users of BNB Chain dApps and token holders alike can now join the hundreds of millions of users worldwide to enjoy Web3 access functionality at their fingertips. The Opera Crypto Browser project already supports Ethereum and Ethereum dApps and Polygon, with more blockchain integrations coming soon.
