Browsers were the first piece of software that allowed people to truly connect with everything on the internet. What followed after that is what we know as the information revolution that brought us to today’s vast landscape of interactive experiences.
Opera is one of the largest web browser companies in the world, counting more than 300 million users across their desktop and mobile products. In its +20 years of existence Opera had a strong history of path-breaking innovation that also led them to being a door opener when it comes to embracing Web3 technologies.
We are thrilled to announce that Elrond & Opera have entered into a partnership which will allow all Opera users direct access to the Elrond ecosystem. This will make EGLD, Elrond assets and applications built on our network accessible for their massive user base, further increasing adoption avenues.
“Elrond’s novel approach to consensus and sharding algorithms allows it to achieve remarkable performance while using the least amount of energy possible and without overly relying on high-end hardware.
We’re excited to be tapping into Opera’s vast userbase to offer them cheaper, faster transactions as well as access to Elrond’s burgeoning dApp ecosystem.” said Beniamin Mincu, Elrond Network CEO
Opera also offers an integrated crypto non-custodial wallet, putting it in a unique position to widespread mainstream blockchain adoption and bring an exciting growth opportunity for our ecosystem as it opens the door for a sweeping user base expansion.
“The seamless integration of Elrond further expands the wide array of crypto-centric services available to Opera Crypto Browser users. Such interoperability is becoming increasingly important for any project aiming to embrace Web3, and we are excited to have another blockchain partner join us on our mission to accelerate the evolution of the internet.” said Susie Batt, Crypto Ecosystem Lead at Opera
Easy access to blockchain products is vital for expansion, and both companies are showing their intent to aid this growth. Connecting one of the most active and innovative ecosystems with a globally trusted browser is an exciting step towards mass adoption and a move that will undoubtedly bring down the barrier to entry for users worldwide.
