Opera, the first Web3 browser, has announced its intention to support TRON’s TRX token and other TRC standard tokens in its browser in the near future. Currently, Opera’s encrypted wallet supports ETH and ERC tokens.
Opera’s decision to add another mainstream blockchain to its platform marks a further step in its strategy to make Web3 more inclusive and globally user-friendly. Integrating the TRON tokens into Opera’s encrypted wallet enables hundreds of millions of Opera users to experience TRON games and decentralized apps (DApp) in their browsers. The user interface is seamless and requires no third-party browser extensions or wallet applications.
“TRON is a popular and rapidly growing blockchain with a rapidly growing DApp ecosystem. “We’re excited to open our browser to TRON,” said Krystian Kolondra, vice President and head of browsers at Opera.
“We are very excited that Opera, the mainstream browser with hundreds of millions of users, will be able to support TRX and other TRON tokens seamlessly,” said Justin Sun, CEO of TRON. “Opera users will also soon be able to use DApp on TRON’s blockchain.”
In December 2018, Opera became the first major android browser to include both a native encrypted wallet and a Web 3 browser. These new features enable people to trade and interact with Web 3, the blockchain-based future of the Internet. Opera’s PC browser introduced this feature in April 2019. The iOS version is currently in beta and will be released later this year.
In late 2018, TRON announced TRON Arcade, a $100 million fund dedicated to gaming apps. According to DApp review website DappReview, there are more than 400 dapps on the TRON blockchain. Many of them have use cases related to entertainment. TRON now has more than 2.8 million TRX accounts and about 3 million transactions in 24 hours.
Opera is the preferred browser for more than 300 million users worldwide. The company’s decision to integrate the new blockchain into its browser marks a step closer to developing forward-looking applications. These applications will be able to interact with as many blockchains as possible, providing the most fluid experience for users.
Opera plans to add support for multiple blockchains in the next 12 months. After successfully integrating the TRON blockchain, Opera users will be able to use TRX tokens from TRON and TRC standard tokens in their browsers. Opera’s encrypted wallet already supports ETH and erc-20 standard tokens.
Opera, with its encrypted wallet and Web 3 support, is already available on android smartphones, Windows and Linux PCS, and apple macs. The wallet can also be used in the Opera Touch freshness app on iOS. The browser already supports ethereum and will soon support TRON. In September 2018, Opera reached a strategic partnership with Ledger Capital to develop its blockchain technology plan. Ledger Capital played an important role in the establishment of the partnership between Opera and TRON.
