Web3 - Opera Unveils Dedicated Crypto Browser for iOS Users

Under its "Crypto Browser Project," multi-platform web browser Opera has unveiled iOS version of its dedicated crypto browser that offers more users direct, user-friendly access to Web3 services. In 2020, an estimated 1 billion people use iPhones worldwide.

The launch of iOS version of crypto browser follows initial integration of the Crypto Browser Project with Windows, Mac, and Android and looks to take mass adoption of Web3 to new levels. Earlier in January this year, Opera unveiled beta release of its crypto browser for Mac, Windows, and Android.

The iOS version of Opera crypto browser also boasts the ability to restore any Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible Wallet with the native Opera Wallet, allowing users to integrate their existing assets and balances into their Crypto Browser setup.

Late last month, Opera, announced that it has integrated support for several major blockchain ecosystems, including Solana, Polygon, StarkEx, Ronin, Celo, Nervos, IXO and Bitcoin.

Norway-based Opera originally launched the first web browser with an integrated cryptocurrency wallet and basic Web3 support back in 2018. In 2019, Opera also released a gaming-oriented version of the browser called "Opera GX" and in 2021 Opera released a mobile version of Opera GX iOS and Android.

Opera's focus for the Crypto Browser Project is a simplified user experience across decentralized apps (dapps), games, and metaverse platforms. The browser also features a news and data aggregator named "Crypto Corner," a bespoke start page focused on live crypto information and updates, crypto asset prices and gas fees, as well as crypto events, airdrops, and even podcasts.

Jorgen Arnesen, EVP Mobile at Opera, said: "The interest in Web3 is continuing to grow. The Opera Crypto Browser Project was built to simplify the Web3 user experience that has often been bewildering for mainstream users. Opera believes Web3 has to be easy to use in order to reach its full potential and a mass adoption."
