Opera Crypto Browser is now available on iPhones and iPads


On Friday, Opera launched a beta version of its Web3 browser for iOS devices, including the iPhone and iPad, that includes a built-in crypto wallet. Since January, Mac and Windows desktop users, as well as Android smartphone users, have had access to Opera’s Crypto Browser. The Crypto Browser Project, a Web3-focused endeavour for simplifying browsing among decentralised apps (DApps), games, and metaverse platforms, has now released a mobile version.

The crypto browser’s wallet, which supports the Ethereum, Polygon, and Celo ecosystems for buying, selling, and transferring tokens, is one of the most important features, according to the business. Users can also use the native Opera Wallet to restore and merge their existing assets and balances from any Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible Wallet.

Users may see the most recent top NFT sales and a news aggregator dubbed “Crypto Corner” on the browser’s homepage, which includes live updates on crypto asset values and gas fees, as well as airdrops and suggested educational sites.

Opera also bitcoin mining protection

The browser also has bitcoin mining protection, according to the company, which prevents “cryptojacking” scripts from compromising the speed of an iPhone or iPad device. A native ad and tracker blocker, pop-up blocker, and an intuitive Cookie Dialogue Blocker are among the other security features.

The Crypto Browser, according to Jorgen Arnesen, EVP Mobile at Opera, is aimed at the growing interest in Web3, whether it’s from seasoned crypto users or beginners.

“The Opera Crypto Browser Project was created to make the Web3 user experience more accessible to the general public. To achieve its full potential and widespread acceptance, Opera believes Web3 must be simple to use.”

Bitcoin, Solana, Polygon, StarkEx, Ronin, Celo, Nervos Network, and IXO are among the eight major blockchain ecosystems that the browser business now supports. In the future, the Crypto Browser intends to integrate more Proof-of-Stake chains, according to the company.

The browser recently teamed with Yat, a company that allows users to create emoji-based URLs or site addresses. Opera’s “emojification” allows users to access the web using certified Yats (a string of emojis) instead of letters and words in the URL bar.
