Opera browser integrates Elrond blockchain services to boost Web3 adoption

Web3 Opera crypto browser has 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 built-in 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 sharing makes it one of the fastest and most 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 native EGLD tokens, making it a great entry point for Web3. Users will be able to participate without relying on a third-party wallet, ensuring seamless transactions and enhanced security.

In an exclusive chat with Cointelegraph, Danny Yao, Senior Product Manager at Opera, said the company is actively pursuing a multi-chain policy, having integrated Ethereum, Bitcoin, Polygonand BNB Channel earlier. He explained:

“Our goal is to be an understandable and secure entry point to Web3 for anyone interested in crypto. This also means that we have provided a wallet selection feature which allows our users to choose the wallet they wish to use to interact with a particular DApp.

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

Speaking about the growing security vulnerabilities among DApps and how Opera is mitigating these risks, Yao explained:

“We have provided a wallet selection feature that allows our users to choose which wallet they want to use to interact with a particular DApp. We also have a secure clipboard, protecting our users’ data when copy-pasting sensitive data such as wallet addresses or bank account numbers.

The Elrond blockchain is one of Europe’s first carbon-negative blockchains, ensuring Opera users have access to environmentally friendly solutions. With a growing focus on environmental, social and governance concerns in the crypto ecosystem, the partnership between the two Web3 platforms could set a precedent for similar integrations in the future.
