Opera, one of the most popular crypto-friendly internet browsers, announced the integration of eight blockchains as part of its ongoing effort to bring Web3 to more than 380 million mobile and desktop users worldwide.

According to their announcement the users can now access blockchains, decentralized apps (dapps), and services from eight different blockchain ecosystems, including Solana, Polygon, StarkEx/Deversifi Layer 2, and Bitcoin, as well as IXO, Ronin, Nervos, and Celo.

Users can now have access to the vast ecosystem of Polygon or Solana dApps, as well as the benefits of Layer 2 DeFi, thanks to StarkWare-powered DiversiFi. They can also care for their Axies by using Ronin.

As per the announcement, today’s launch expands access to PoS blockchains and Ethereum Layer-2 ecosystems, including Polygon and StarkEx. By gaining access to these blockchains, users can enjoy lower gas fees and faster transactions. They can do so while reducing their carbon footprint and retaining Ethereum’s robust decentralization and security. The integration of multiple blockchains, particularly Layer 2s, is a critical strategy in Opera’s mission to remain chain agnostic while seamlessly onboarding millions of users to Web3 in an environmentally conscious manner.

Jorgen Arnesen, EVP Mobile at Opera said that “Ever since we started in the Web3 space in 2018, we’ve been sealing partnerships with the most popular and cutting edge blockchains and web3 domain name providers in order to accelerate crypto’s evolution from proof of concept towards mass adoption. 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”.

Opera released the first public beta version of its new Crypto Browser Project on mobile and desktop in mid-January 2022. The Crypto Browser Project offers the ultimate, all-in-one, Web3 browsing experience. Although Opera was the first to launch a web browser with an integrated cryptocurrency wallet and basic Web3 support in 2018, the Crypto Browser Project, which includes built-in dapp support, a non-custodial crypto wallet, and Crypto Corner, marked the start of a new journey toward a dedicated Web3 browsing experience with the goal of accelerating the evolution of the next generation of the Web. This is now becoming a reality.
