Opera, a web browser supporting Web3, has added the Binance blockchain (BNB) on its ‘crypto-friendly’ platform, both on desktop and mobile.

Opera revealed that the latest integration of its Crypto Browser with BNB will enable users to purchase BNB tokens with fiat as well as send and receive the asset via the built-in crypto wallet.

Additionally, users will also be able to access BNB Chain-based decentralized applications. Besides transactions and funds, Opera will also provide access to popular decentralized exchanges such as PancakeSwap, 1inch, BiSwap, as well as products like DRIP Venus, Tranchess, Treehouse, ApeSwap, and AutoShark Finance.

“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,” Opera stated in a statement.

The browser has forged partnerships with several blockchains in recent years. In addition to BNB Chain, Opera has scaled up its support for nine major blockchain ecosystems, including Bitcoin, Solana, Polygon, StarkEx, Ronin, Celo, Nervous Network, and now BNB Chain.

It stressed earlier that it does not intend to focus on just one blockchain or token. Instead, Opera is looking to integrate multiple blockchains and decentralized domain naming systems into its crypto browsers, thereby giving users extensive options.

The latest integration comes on the heels of Opera’s beta release of a Web3 browser for iOS devices, iPhone and iPad, last month. In January, it launched its much-anticipated ‘Crypto Browser’ project. The project’s focus is to extend further the evolution of the next generation of the Web and aims to offer additional functionality to the traditional browser.
