Opera Ships iOS Version of Its Crypto Browser
- First dedicated crypto browser to provide 1 Billion iOS users with access to Web3
- The launch of iOS support follows initial integration of the
Crypto Browser Projectwith Windows, Mac, and Android and looks to take mass adoption of Web3 to new levels
Web 3 is gaining momentum, with a record 34 thousand developers having joined the space in 2021 to work on a growing number of dApps. The Web3-experience for users has, however, been oftentimes far from intuitive and traditionally not optimized for iOS users. With iOS support, Opera's Crypto Browser, which is a dedicated web3 browser with a built-in non-custodial crypto wallet, is primed to take adoption and ease of use up a notch.
Opera Crypto Browser's iOS release follows the earlier January beta release on Mac, Windows, and Android. Opera's browser is tailored to the needs of veteran crypto users and new adopters alike. Opera's focus for the
The browser on iOS 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.
With more than 25 years of experience building web browsers, Opera is considered among the top privacy and security browsers in the world. The Crypto Browser project is dedicated to further improve its users' security on Web3 and features advanced features such as a native ad and tracker blocker, pop-up blocker, and an intuitive Cookie Dialogue Blocker. Also included is cryptocurrency mining protection, blocking any 'cryptojacking' scripts that could compromise iOS devices (and decrease their performance).
Opera's Crypto Browser is also purposefully designed to address the increasing consumer demand for greater Web3 access with a streamlined user experience. The size of the market opportunity is significant, with
The browser was also designed to address crypto's growing pains. As Web3 is surging, users and developers increasingly look towards more efficient and environmentally-friendly PoS and Layer 2 chains which enable cheaper transactions and a much lower energy consumption than PoW blockchains. To address this, Opera has partnered with Polygon and will be integrating more PoS chains in the future. Polygon consumes just 0.00079 terawatts (TWh) of electricity per year — significantly less than the energy-intensive Proof-of-Work (PoW) blockchain networks which average between 35 to 140 (TWh) per year.
Opera's Crypto Browser represents an important step toward simplifying and streamlining user access to Web3 and beyond; with iOS integration, Opera pushes the envelope even further for hundreds of millions of iOS users worldwide.
