Web3-Enabled Browser Opera to Unite With Polygon


This post was originally published on Crowdfundinsider

Opera, a mobile browser with Web3 support and built-in crypto wallet, this week announced an upcoming browser integration with Polygon, an Ethereum scaling platform. The integration is set to occur in Q1 2022 and will provide users in-browser access to more than 3,000 dApps on the Polygon network. The Opera crypto wallet, which is built into the browser, will also allow them to transact with MATIC.

The integration of the Polygon blockchain and the MATIC token is the next step in the browser company’s strategy to remove hurdles associated with the use of crypto, they said in a statement. With Ethereum gas fees surging, Polygon’s fast, scalable, and ultra-low fee environment has made it one of the most popular Layer 2 Ethereum scaling solutions among users and developers. Polygon houses substantially more gaming and NFT dApps than other chains outside of Ethereum.

“Our cooperation with Polygon will allow us to remove the biggest challenge that crypto-enthusiasts are now facing: high gas fees and slow transaction speeds. We are thrilled to give access to Polygon dApps and the MATIC token seamlessly and directly in our mobile browser,” said Jorgen Arnese, Opera EVP mobile.

Opera’s browser will connect users with Polygon Network’s supply of Ethereum Web3 dApps. Opera’s non-custodial crypto wallet supports the Ethereum Web3 API, making interacting with these dApps easier for the user.

Users can access Polygon dApps including Sushiswap, Curve, Aave, Balancer, Kyber, as well as blockchain games and NFT platforms such as Decentraland, Opensea, Sandbox, Somnium Space, and Decentral Games.

“With this integration, Opera’s hundreds of millions monthly active users will be able to experience Polygon’s thriving dApp ecosystem and best in class Web3 technology,” Polygon VP of growth Arjun Kalsy said. “Polygon started with the dream of enabling mass adoption of blockchain technology and we are delighted to work with partners aligned with the same vision.”

Polygon will be first integrated into Opera’s Android browser, which has native Web3 browsing capabilities as well as a built-in, non-custodial crypto wallet. The Opera wallet removes barriers to entry for crypto newcomers and veterans alike by eliminating passwords. Instead, the wallet relies on Android’s secure system lock to sign transactions, so users aren’t required to remember passwords or codes.
