On the way to becoming the leading Web3 browser?

Opera launched its first web browser with an integrated cryptocurrency wallet and essential Web3 support in 2018. Now, the company is focusing more on providing users with a dedicated Web3 browser to “accelerate the evolution of the next generation of the web. ".

As of April 2022, BNB Chain was the largest smart contract blockchain in terms of daily active users (DAUs). Thus, integration aims to promote the narratives of organizations in adopting the Web3.

Opera's Crypto Browser launched in January makes it easy to navigate through DApps, games, and metaverses. Through various strategic partnerships, Opera apparently aims to become the leading Web3 browser. However, in the midst of competition from Web3 browsers such as Brave, how much Opera market could cover in the future remains to be seen.
