Today, the popular multi-platform web browser announced that BNB Chain had been successfully integrated into its Crypto Browser. BNB Chain has the most daily active users (DAU) of any smart contract blockchain and is home to a variety of community-driven and decentralized applications (dApps).

BNB tokens can be purchased, sent, and received via the built-in Opera crypto wallet with fiat money. One can also access dApps on the BNB Chain due to Opera’s integration with BNB.
Apart from transactions and funds on the BNB Chain, Opera also provides users with seamless access to dApps such as PancakeSwap, 1inch, and BiSwap and innovative DeFi products such as ApeSwap, Treehouse, DRIP Venus, ApeSwap, and AutoShark Finance.
Opera’s dApps support gaming and NFT applications like StarSharks and Thetan Arena for individuals who like Web3’s more entertainment-oriented side.
The BNB Chain connection comes after the Opera Crypto Browser’s much-anticipated iOS debut in April, which brought the service to millions of new users worldwide. The development comes after the browser’s initial beta release for Mac, Windows, and Android in January.
One of the most popular blockchain ecosystems is BNB Chain’s Decentralized Finance (DeFi) ecosystem, with over 4 million weekly unique active users, 36 million weekly transactions, and over $13 billion in total value locked (TVL).
The network also benefits from its environment-friendly Proof-of-Stake Authority (PoSA) consensus method, which allows for higher energy efficiency and ultra-low-cost, instantaneous transactions.
Opera has 350 million monthly active users worldwide, making this a partnership that has the potential to accelerate Web3 adoption.
What are the people at Opera saying?
“We are confident that today’s integration with the BNB Chain ecosystem will offer even greater functionality for both new and experienced Web3 users,” stated Jorgen Arnesen, EVP Mobile at Opera.
Opera continues to deliver real utility and user-friendliness that is needed in order for Web3 to attain broad adoption in the long term, with a host of prominent BNB Chain dApps already onboarded and the Opera Crypto Browser’s user-friendly and intuitive design.
“The goal of the BNB Chain community is to build the infrastructure powering the world’s parallel virtual ecosystem and attract the next billion people to crypto,” stated Patrick Degenhardt, Vice President of BNB Chain.
He also said that this move would increase the usage of digital assets and blockchain technology which in turn will necessitate the integration of Web2 and Web3. Opera’s Crypto Browser bridges the gap between the two realms and provides the Opera’s 350 million users access to over 1,300 BNB Chain dApps and their funds.”
Opera is focusing on its core skill of providing a streamlined, accessible user experience for the Crypto Browser project, drawing on over three decades of experience as a Web2 industry leader.
Onboarding to cryptocurrencies and interacting with dApps, gaming, cryptocurrency, and metaverse platforms on the Opera browser is tailored to both new and seasoned Web 3 users.
The browser also includes “Crypto Corner,” a news and data aggregator with a custom start page that includes live crypto updates, crypto-asset price reporting, crypto events, airdrops, and more. Web3 apps and domains can be accessed just like any Web2 domain by putting the address into the address bar.
Opera continues to simplify popular access to Web3 and beyond with the launch of BNB Chain integration today. Users of BNB chain dApps can now access fully functional Web3 through the new Opera Crypto Browser, which is available on all platforms like Windows, Android, or Mac.
With more blockchain integrations coming shortly, the Opera Crypto Browser project already supports Ethereum and Ethereum dApps, as well as Polygon.
