Since 2018, Opera has been providing web3 support and a buit-in crypto wallet in its browsers, both on mobile and desktop. Now is joining forces with Solana Labs to integrate the blockchain and support Solana dApps in the first quarter of 2022.
It has been Opera’s vision to remove the hurdles associated with using web3 and crypto in order to make it more appealing and usable by wider audience. The company removed the first hurdle by making access to web3 a seamless experience, available directly in the browser.
As the interest in DiFi and web3 grows, Opera is taking the next step to integrate faster blockchain with lower transaction fees. It will bring direct access to Solana and its hundreds of millions of users. Solana’s blockchain brings fast, low-fee transactions of $0.00025, that will definitely attract more people on DiFi and web3. Solana will first be integrated into Opera for Android.
Susie Batt, Crypto Ecosystem Lead in Opera has stated: “Solana has the goal of onboarding one billion people to crypto. Thats the goal we share. No other browser company has been at the forefront of web3 as early on as Opera. We are thrilled to be collaborating moving forward.”
“The path to 1 billion users can’t be built by just two or three platforms. This integration will give tens of millions of new users even more choices of how to connect to Solana, and work to keep the dream of the open web alive and well. The mobile web3 revolution has barely just begun, and Opera is helping lead the way” – said Austin Federa
