Opera has released an iOS version of its opera Crypto Browser, which is meant to visit web3 and includes a non-custodial crypto wallet.
Previously, the browser was available for Windows, Mac, and Android devices.
According to Opera, this browser was created for both experienced cryptocurrency users and newbies. Opera hopes to connect new ecosystems into the app’s built-in crypto wallet, which now supports Ethereum, Polygon, and Celo blockchain technologies.
Opera has introduced an iOS version of their Crypto Browser, which supports web3 and features a non-custodial cryptocurrency wallet.
The browser was formerly accessible for Windows, Mac, and Android users.
This browser, according to Opera, was designed for both expert and novice bitcoin users. Opera intends to integrate more ecosystems into its built-in crypto wallet, which presently supports Ethereum, Polygon, and Celo blockchains.
According to Opera, one of the goals of the Crypto Browser is to make web3 navigation as simple as Web 2. Users may visit web3 NFTs and decentralized apps, including 7,000 Polygon-supported services, using the Crypto Browser.
“The interest in Web3 is continuing to grow,” Jorgen Arnesen, executive vice president of Mobile at Opera, said in a statement. “The Opera Crypto Browser Project was built to simplify the Web3 user experience that has often been bewildering for mainstream users. Opera believes Web3 has to be easy to use in order to reach its full potential and mass adoption.”
Ad tracker, pop-up blocker, and cookie dialogue blocking are among the browser’s security features. Cryptojacking scripts are also blocked with bitcoin mining protection.
To address environmental concerns about blockchain’s high energy consumption, Opera said that it was working on integrating Ethereum Layer 2 solutions, which are designed to lessen the technology’s environmental effect. Opera revealed in February that Layer 2 has been incorporated into the Crypto Browser Android app. Layer 2 technology is also used in the iOS app.
