Opera, the multi-platform Web3 digital asset browser, has announced plans to integrate Elrond blockchain services for over 300 million users to help promote Web3 adoption. This integration will allow users to directly access dApps and other Web3-related services through the integrated Opera wallet.
Elrond is a scalable blockchain network and one of Europe’s first carbon-negative blockchains. The blockchain provides various infrastructure services for dApps, enterprise use cases, and the new internet economy. Thanks to its adaptive state sharding, it is also one of the fastest and most efficient blockchain networks.
This integration will give Opera users access to the Elrond Standard Digital Token (ESDT), a native token issuance standard, and the native EGLD tokens. This will make the Opera browser a simple way to enter the Web3 space. It will also allow users to join without relying on a third-party wallet, enabling efficient transactions and providing additional security.
Danny Yao, senior product manager at Opera, stated that the company is working towards a multichain policy with the integration of Ethereum, Bitcoin, Polygon, and BNB Chain. Yao 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.”
Yao also went into how the company is mitigating the risks associated with growing security vulnerabilities among dApps:
“We have provided a wallet selector feature that lets our users choose which wallet they want to use to interact with a particular dApp. We also have a secure clipboard, safeguarding our user’s data as they copy-paste sensitive data such as wallet addresses or bank account numbers.”
Thanks to the Elrond blockchain being a carbon-negative blockchain, users will have access to eco-friendly solutions. The digital asset space is beginning to shift concerns to environmental issues. The most prominent and recent example is the Ethereum Merge. With Opera integrating an eco-friendly solution, it is doing its part to help with the environment, futureproofing its system, and facilitating Web3 adoption all at once.
