BNB Chain is the largest smart contract blockchain in terms of daily active users (DAU) and host to a plethora of community-driven and decentralized applications (dApps).
The integration will allow you to buy the BNB token with fiat, as well as to send and receive it using the built-in Opera crypto wallet, and access dApps on the BNB Chain. Beyond access to transactions and funds on the BNB Chain, Opera also gives you seamless access to dApps including popular Decentralized Exchanges like PancakeSwap, 1inch,and BiSwap and innovative DeFi products like DRIP Venus, Tranchess, Treehouse, ApeSwap, and AutoShark Finance.
For those of you who are more into the fun side of Web3, the Opera browser supports GameFi dApps like StarSharks, Thetan Arena, StarryNift and SecondLive, as well as NFT applications like Galaxy, NFTrade and Galler.
The Opera Crypto Browser’s BNB Chain integration follows its much-awaited launch in April on iOS, which opened the service to millions of new users worldwide. This followed the original beta release of the browser on Mac, Windows, and Android in January.
BNB Chain boasts over 4+ Million Weekly Unique Active Users, 36 Million weekly transactions on average and more than $13 billion in total value locked (TVL) within its Decentralized Finance (DeFi) ecosystem — making it one of the most popular blockchain ecosystems in the industry. The network also benefits from its eco-friendly Proof-of-Staked Authority (PoSA) consensus mechanism, allowing for increased energy efficiency and ultra-low-cost, instantaneous transactions. Opera boasts 350M monthly active users globally, making this a partnership that has the potential to take Web3 adoption to the next level.
With nearly three decades of experience as a Web2 market leader, Opera is focused on its core competency of offering a simplified, accessible user experience for the Crypto Browser project. Onboarding to crypto and interacting with dApps, gaming, cryptocurrency, and metaverse platforms on Opera’s browser is customized for new adopters and experienced Web 3 users alike.
The Crypto Browser also features “Crypto Corner,” a news and data aggregator and bespoke start page featuring live crypto updates, crypto-asset price reporting, as well as crypto events, airdrops, and much more. You can also access Web3 apps and domains as easily as any Web2 domain – simply by typing the address into the address bar.
With today’s announcement of BNB Chain integration, Opera continues to streamline mainstream access to Web3 and beyond. With the Opera Crypto Browser, existing users of BNB Chain dApps and token holders alike can now join the hundreds of millions of Windows, Android, and Mac users worldwide in having unique Web3 access functionality at their fingertips.
