Opera Touch for iOS lets users seamlessly interact with the next generation of Web 3 applications on the Ethereum blockchain. To try it out, users first have to download Opera Touch from the Apple App store. In order to start making actual Web 3 transactions, they also need to purchase some Ethereum (ETH) and store it in their Opera Crypto Wallet. Once the cryptocurrency is stored, users can access a selection of Web 3 apps in the dApp store, accessible from the browser’s speed dial.

From the company they said that they chose Ethereum because it is a popular and quickly growing protocol that allows people to make transactions and enables developers to create dApps which provide practical use of this technology.

Opera supports all ERC-20 tokens, stablecoins and non-fungible tokens (NFT). Opera Touch for iOS with Crypto Wallet, like the Opera browser for Android, supports the Ethereum Web3 API, making interacting with dApps seamless to the user without the need for browser extensions.

Charles Hamel, head of crypto at Opera browsers said:

“We believe that all modern browsers should integrate a crypto wallet. This will enable new business models to emerge on the web. Opera is the first browser to make using crypto on the Web seamless and easy. Following a strong demand from the crypto-community, we are now making this experience available on iOS.”

Web 3 is an umbrella term for a set of emerging technologies intersecting cryptocurrencies, blockchains and distributed systems that, together, extend the capabilities of the Web we all use today in meaningful ways, allowing, for example, direct peer-to-peer payments between users and websites.

In the company, they believe that the Web of today will be the interface to the decentralized web of tomorrow (Web 3).

Hamel explained:

“Before Opera entered the cryptocurrency scene almost a year ago, using cryptocurrencies online and accessing Web 3 required special apps or extensions, which made it difficult for people to even try it out. Our browsers remove that friction.”

For the release, Opera has partnered with a new dApp, Marble Cards that turns web pages into digital collectible cards. Almost any URL on the internet can be turned into a card, but only once. These collectibles are non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on the Ethereum blockchain.

Johan Unger at Marble Card said:

“At Marble.Cards, we want to let people create unique and personal digital cards based on anything from the internet. Opera has set a new standard for browsers with its Web 3 support, and we are thrilled to be featured as part of their iOS release. We hope as many people as possible will set out to create new Marble cards.”

Opera Touch comes with a set of handy features and great design including the “My Flow” function which lets people share websites and notes with themselves across multiple devices.
