What is new in Opera's blockchain browser for iPhone?
When it comes to Opera's browser for internet surfing, it is outstanding amongst all other browsers that are available on the internet. After the community pushes Opera Touch browser for iOS now features crypto wallet integration and Web 3 support, the browser gained huge attention from the crypto users.
Opera's browser is powered by Ethereum wallet which is a popular and quickly growing protocol that allows people to make transactions and enables developers to create decentralized app. It provides a practical use for this technology. Opera Touch for iPhone supports all ERC-20 tokens, stablecoins and non-fungible tokens (NFT).
Opera for iPhone is inbuilt with Crypto Wallet, like the Opera browser for Android phones. Interestingly, the browser also supports the Ethereum Web3 API, making interacting with dApps smoother, without the need for browser extensions.
After making the browser useful for crypto investors, Opera became the first browser to do so. The community also believes that all modern browsers should integrate a crypto wallet. Also, this might enable a new business model to emerge on the web.
Opera is bringing cryptos and Web 3 to the mainstream
Web 3 is still facing massive challenges before it can reach mass adoption. The barriers are due to less techy users are having issues to understand the new terminology, difficulties in understanding cryptocurrency concepts and complicated installation processes.
Opera entered the cryptospace almost a year before. Using cryptocurrencies online and accessing Web 3 requires extensions, which makes difficult for users to even try it, however to some extent Opera browsers remove that fiction.
For the browser release, Opera has partnered with Marble.Cards. It is new and exciting Decentralization apps. This DApp turns web pages into digital collectible cards. Interestingly, almost any URL on the net can be turned into a card, but once only. This means that every Marble card has a unique identity. Marblecards are non-fungible tokens on the Ether blockchain network. It means that if users secure an interesting URL and turn it into a Marble card, then they can trade it.
Moreover, it is also possible to buy Marble cards created by other users. The dApp will be accessible via the built-in share feature which is visible in the dApp explorer on the browser’s speed dial. This allows users to create unique Marble cards from URLs of their own choice.
