We’ve talked a lot about web3 and the blockchain recently at Com Lime, but there’s a good reason for this… I believe this new internet model is the basis of many changes that we will see next year. I was not saying we would have NFTs across the site (although I do believe that non-fungible tokens would still allow for more legitimate work off the ground); I still can not say that Bitcoin or Ethereum is the future of finance – far from it, especially if the platforms continue to use a lot of electricity in their operations. So why talk so much about web3 and such? The answer is simple: this is all the beginning of a scenario that we can not even imagine all the potential of.

Some organizations already understand this and are taking on the role of innovators as well early adopters. Opera, for example, is behind the first web3 native browser with crypto wallet integration. This Wednesday (30), it announced the addition of support for multiple blockchain ecosystems in the Opera Crypto Browser, including, among them, key: Solana, Polygon, StarkEx, Ronin, Celo, Nervos DAO, IXO and Bitcoin. Millions of Opera browser users can now benefit from business applications (DApps) as well as services across eight different blockchain ecosystems. Starting today, users will also be able to access Polygon or Solana’s larger ecosystem via DApps and enjoy the benefits of Layer 2 DeFi on DiversiFi powered by StarkWare.

According to the company, according to the company, by accessing these blockchains, consumers will be able to benefit from the industry faster, lower their carbon footprint, and even increase their carbon footprint. advantage of strong decentralization and security of the Ethereum network. “The integration of multiple blockchains and Layer-2 is a key concept in Opera’s mission to unite millions of users with Web3, doing so in an immersive environment.”
In January 2022, Opera announced the first public beta of its Crypto Browser Project on mobile and desktop devices. As the company began building its first website with a built-in cryptocurrency wallet and simple web3 support in 2018, the Crypto Browser Project, which includes DApp support, is not a crypto wallet manager, and Crypto Corner, is one. who marked the beginning of a new way of web3 browsing experience, with a focus on speed and transition to the next generation of the Internet.
“Since our launch of web3 in 2018, we have partnered with some of the most popular and popular users and Web3 registrars to facilitate the exchange of cryptocurrencies – from data proof of concept to major adoption.Also, web3 should soon become a web technology and users will not want to know that they are involved with it. overall, they need to get to know each other better and that would be a real benefit, “said Jorgen Arnesen, EVP Mobile of Opera
Polygon and Solana: More energy saving and less impact
One of the big problems for people who have not yet delved into the content of web3, blockchain functionality and the like, is the environmental impact that some networks are aware of. Ethereum in Proof-of-Work (PoW) format is still a big culprit in this situation, but that does not mean that nothing is accomplished and there is no other way.
Opera collaboration with Polygon is an environmental awareness. The fast, scalable and ultra-low bandwidth of Polygon’s Proof-of-Stake (PoS) mode has made this blockchain one of Ethereum’s most popular solutions for users and developers alike. , it is a solution that uses Ethereum. network (Layer-2), but with lower power.
When the asset is transferred to Polygon’s PoS chain, the impact of CO2 emissions is reduced by the cost. Polygon uses only 0.00079 terawatts (TWh) of electricity per year, which is more than 90% less energy than Ethereum’s Phase-1. For example, minting an NFT in Polygon results in approximately CO2 driving at 260 meters. With the integration, users can enjoy the most diverse applications (more than 7,000), including works by Polygon Studios and games such as My Crypto Heroes, Atlantis World , Decentral Games, etc.
Another major feature of browsers that has begun to include blockchain features is the breakthrough of DeFi (fair share). Opera’s acquisition of Solana trumps major industry competitors as the platform becomes the top 10 cryptocurrency project by the market cap in 2022. Its low cost, high scalability, and PoS design make success is one of the key factors of business.
Opera users can now access the entire Solana ecosystem, including business applications (DApps) currently held on the blockchain. This includes apps that are available across exchanges (DEXs) such as Solend and Raydium, shops of NFT and music streaming apps. While Opera is working with the Solana ecosystem to integrate Opera Wallet, users will be able to connect via Phantom Wallet.
