Opera browser integrates Elrond blockchain services to bolster Web3 adoption

Elrond is one of the first carbon-negative blockchains in Europe, and its integration with Opera will help millions of new users to access the Web3 ecosystem.

Web3 crypto browser Opera announced plans to integrate Elrond blockchain services for over 300 million users. The integration would help Opera users directly access a host of decentralized applications (DApps) and other popular services through the integrated Opera wallet. 

Elrond is a scalable blockchain network that offers various infrastructure services for DApps, enterprise use cases and the new internet economy. The blockchain’s adaptive state sharding makes it one of the fastest and more efficient networks.

With the integration, Opera users will have access to the Elrond Standard Digital Token (ESDT), a native token issuance standard, in addition to the native EGLD tokens, making it a great entry point for Web3. Users will be able to take part without relying on a third-party wallet, ensuring seamless transactions and added security.

In an exclusive conversation with Cointelegraph, Danny Yao, senior product manager at Opera, said that the company is actively pursuing a multichain policy, having integrated Ethereum, Bitcoin, Polygon, and BNB Chain earlier. He explained:

“Our aim is to be an understandable and secure entry point to Web3 for anyone interested in crypto. This also means we have provided a wallet selector feature that lets our users choose which wallet they want to use to interact with a particular DApp.”

Opera browser offers an integrated noncustodial crypto wallet, making it an apt entry point for millions of users that can access multiple blockchain ecosystems from this single entry point.
