A new beta version of Opera’s Crypto Browser Project has been announced. Web3 is at the core of this crypto browser Opera that is available for PC, Mac, and mobile phones. As explained by Opera, users will be able to access the latest blockchain news, upcoming airdrops, upcoming industry events, NFTs, crypto communities, educational content, podcasts, and videos to learn about crypto prices, gas fees, and market sentiment all in one place. In a press release Opera added access to Web3 sites and dApps directly from the browser’s address bar, on top of its free no-log VPN, native ad blocker, and tracker blocker. A new native non-custodial crypto wallet is also included in the Web3 focused browser, allowing users to access their crypto or sign in to dApps. Without installing any extensions, such as Metamask, this can be accomplished directly from the browser.
Opera takes a big step
A decentralized web, which is called Web3 for short, is supposed to challenge the dominance of the tech giants by putting power and data in the hands of the users instead of the big corporations. Thus, data is distributed across networks and no one entity owns the information, but the concept is extremely difficult to execute.
According to Opera, the internet of today provides us with an incredible level of social interaction. Which includes an information flow we could not have imagined 20 years ago. But the current web does not provide privacy or centralized control to the few. Web3, or the blockchain-based internet, promises to address these challenges.
The team will be involved in blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies from Decentralized Finance (DeFi). Where you are your own bank – to Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs) – the latest phenomenon in Digital Art and GameFi. Where you can earn as you play your way through all sorts of metaverses. Opera will implement any developments “together” with the crypto community following feedback it receives from its beta.
Opera’s Crypto Browser Project promises a slicker, faster, and more private Web3 browsing experience than the competition. For mainstream users, Web3’s user experience can be confusing. This software simplifies it. According to Jorgen Arnesen, mobile director at Opera, Web3 must be easy to use for the decentralized web. For better achieving its full potential.
