Opera brings its Crypto Browser to iPhones and iPads – TechCrunch

Opera has started that iOS version of their crypto browser designed to access Web3, with an integrated no-custodial crypto wallet.

The browser was previously available on Windows, Mac and Android devices.

Opera says that they have developed this browser for both those who are already familiar with cryptocurrencies and newbies. The app’s built-in crypto wallet supports Ethereum, Polygon, and Celo blockchain technology, and Opera plans to integrate more ecosystems. Users can buy crypto with fiat currency and exchange, send and receive supported tokens. Users can also integrate their existing crypto wallets, as long as they are compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine, with the browser’s built-in wallet.

The Crypto Browser app also includes a feature called Crypto Corner, which aggregates crypto news and information along with events, airdrops, and podcasts to help users stay up to date with the technology.

One of Crypto Browser’s goals is to make navigating Web3 as easy as Web2, says Opera. The Crypto Browser allows users to access Web3 NFTs and decentralized apps, including 7,000 Polygon-powered services.

“Interest in Web3 continues to grow,” said Jorgen Arnesen, Opera’s executive vice president of mobile, in a statement. “The Opera Crypto Browser Project was designed to simplify the Web3 user experience that has often been confusing for mainstream users. Opera believes that in order to reach its full potential and mass adoption, Web3 must be easy to use.”

The browser also has security features such as an ad, a tracker, a pop-up blocker, and cookie dialog blocking. It also uses cryptocurrency mining protection to block cryptojacking scripts.

To address environmental concerns about blockchain’s high energy consumption, Opera said it’s working on it Integrating Ethereum Layer 2 solutions designed to reduce the environmental impact of the technology. Opera announced this in February integrated layer 2 into the Crypto Browser Android app.
