Jorgen Arnesen, EVP mobile at Opera, disclosed that the launch will help to achieve the goal of crypto and Web 3 mainstream adoption. He said “Opera’s Crypto Browser Project promises a simpler, faster, more private Web3 experience for users. It simplifies the Web3 user experience that is often bewildering for mainstream users. Opera believes Web3 has to be easy to use for the decentralized web to reach its full potential.”

The beta version of the browser also contains an in-built non-custodial wallet that supports Ethereum. With the collaboration, soon it will integrate with Polygon, Solana, Nervos Network, Celo, and naming systems such as Unstoppable Domains, Handshake, and Ethereum Name Service.
