Opera, the first browser with Web 3 capabilities, is announcing its intention to soon support TRON’s TRX and other TRC-standard tokens within its browser. Opera’s Crypto Wallet already supports ETH and ERC tokens.
The decision to add another major blockchain onto its platform, marks a further step in Opera’s strategy to make Web 3 more inclusive and user-friendly for people around the world. The integration of the TRON tokens within Opera’s Crypto Wallet will allow hundreds of millions of Opera users to play TRON games and access TRON dApps within the browser. The seamless user interface doesn’t require any third party browser extensions or wallet applications.
“TRON is a popular, quickly developing blockchain with a swiftly growing dApp ecosystem. We are happy to open our browser to it, ” said Krystian Kolondra, EVP at Opera, Head of Browsers. “By opening products to multiple blockchains, we are accelerating the mainstream adoption of Web 3.”
“We are excited that Opera, a mainstream browser with hundreds of millions of users, will now seamlessly support TRX and other TRON tokens,” said Justin Sun CEO of TRON.”Soon, Opera users will be able to use dApps on the TRON blockchain. “
In December 2018, Opera became the first major Android browser to include a native Crypto Wallet and Web 3 explorer. These new features let people make transactions and interact with the blockchain-based internet of the future, also known as Web 3. In April 2019, this functionality was introduced to Opera’s PC browser. The iOS version is currently in beta stage and will be released later this year.
In late 2018, TRON announced TRON Arcade, a 100 million USD fund dedicated to game applications. There are now more than 400 dApps built on the TRON blockchain, according to the review site dappreview. Many of these have entertainment-related use cases. TRON currently has more than 2.7M TRX accounts and boasts approximately 3M transactions in the span of 24 hours.
Opera is the browser of choice for more than 300 million users around the world. The company’s decision to integrate a new blockchain into its browser marks a step to develop future-oriented applications, which talk to as many blockchains as possible, providing the most seamless experience to the users.
Opera plans to add support for multiple blockchains within the next 12 months. After the integration of the TRON blockchain, Opera users will be able to use TRON’s TRX and TRC standard tokens within its browser. Opera’s Crypto Wallet already supports ETH and ERC-20 tokens.
The Opera browser with crypto wallet and Web 3 support is available for Android smartphones, Windows and Linux PCs and Mac. The wallet is also available in the early access program for Opera Touch for iOS. Currently the browser supports Ethereum, but TRON support will arrive soon. In September 2018, Opera sealed a strategic partnership with Ledger Capital to grow its blockchain technology initiative. Ledger Capital played an instrumental role in establishing Opera’s partnership with TRON.
