Opera Software is a Norwegian software company, publicly listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange, with the majority of ownership and control belonging to Chinese businessman Zhou Yahui, founder of Beijing Kunlun Tec which specialises in mobile games and Chinese cybersecurity company Qihoo 360. There also exist three mobile versions of the same called, Opera Mobile, Opera Touch and Opera Mini.
This web browser has now confirmed its complete and established support for TRON and all of the TRC-standard issued tokens in its browser-based crypto wallet. The web browser has announced that the coins will be supported and integrated into the in-build crypto wallet of Opera’s Android version. After the integration of the TRON blockchain, the above 300 million users of the browser worldwide will be able to use the tokens within the browser.
Opera integrated the blockchain as a commitment to the Web 3.0 system, whose objective is to adopt a new semantic web experience to provide a more open and transparent internet for all users worldwide. The integration will also allow users to play Tron games and access Tron decentralized applications (dapps) within the browser, all of which will happen, without requiring third-party extensions or applications. There are currently over 400 dapps built on the Tron blockchain.
Krystian Kolondra, EVP at Opera, Head of Browser also stated, “TRON is a popular, quickly developing blockchain with a swiftly growing dApp ecosystem. We are happy to open our browser to it. By opening products to multiple blockchains, we are accelerating the mainstream adoption of Web 3.”
Followed by Tron CEO Justin Sun who stated, “We are excited that Opera, a mainstream browser with hundreds of millions of users, will now seamlessly support TRX and other TRON tokens….Soon, Opera users will be able to use dApps on the Tron blockchain.”
The firm, Opera, further said that it plans to add support for “multiple” blockchains within the next 12 months. With ETH and ERC blockchain already present with Opera, TRX is going to be a totally new add-on. Last month, though, Opera rolled out a desktop version of the browser for the Mac, Windows and Linux operating systems that included the wallet. The browser/wallet combi is available for iOS devices too, but is currently in beta and is expected to see full release later this year.
In this year, Opera also allowed its Android users to buy ETH cryptocurrency directly from its browser-based wallet through a partnership with Sweden-based regulated crypto brokerage Safello.
Last but not the least, unless TRON improves its alleged centralization issue, that has come up and has created ripples, there is no partnership in the world that can save it as a Blockchain system on a whole.
