OSLO, Norway, June 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Opera, the
world's first browser with Web 3 capabilities, today announced
plans to support Nervos, one of the world's leading blockchains,
through a new CKB$ (Nervos crypto asset) integration via its native
crypto wallet. The collaboration not only opens Opera up to a new
audience of blockchain and crypto enthusiasts that are part of
Nervos' rapidly growing community, but it also gives application
developers relying on Nervos increased reach through Opera's
massive user base. Opera users will be able to send and receive
Nervos CKB directly within the Opera browser and access Nervos
dApps listed on the built-in DApps Store.
Nervos will become the fourth blockchain to become incorporated
into the Opera browser after Bitcoin, Ethereum, and TRON. Opera is
the browser of choice for hundreds of millions of users worldwide.
In 2018, Opera became the first major browser to include a native
Crypto Wallet and Web 3 support. Opera's novel features allow
people to make transactions and interact with the blockchain-based
internet of the future, also known as Web 3. The company's decision
to introduce CKB$ support to its wallet integration marks another
step in the development of future-oriented applications, which talk
to as many blockchains as possible, providing the most seamless
experience to the users. Integrating $CKB directly in the Opera
Browser Crypto Wallet means users will be able to easily send and
receive CKB tokens via a seamless user interface without any
third-party browser extensions or separate wallet applications.
Opera and Nervos are both aligned to making crypto accessible and
easy to use, and through this browser integration, users' crypto
experiences will be significantly more enjoyable.
"Backed by an experienced team and a devoted global community,
Nervos is making waves in the blockchain and crypto space, which
makes it an ideal partner chain," said Cuautemoc Weber, VP Business Development at
Opera. "Nervos also shares our vision for mainstream adoption for
Web 3 and is exploring the many possibilities that an interoperable
blockchain and crypto ecosystem has to offer."
"The support of Opera, a mainstream browser with hundreds of
millions of users, is important not only for the Nervos network but
also the success of the future decentralized economy," said
Kevin Wang, co-founder at Nervos.
"We look forward to the feedback from Opera users and are excited
to introduce them to the Nervos community."
The integration with Opera is the latest in a series of
ecosystem updates and developments to the Nervos ecosystem driving
the next generation of interoperability that will empower the
creation of Universal Applications, which are apps that transcend
individual blockchains to work seamlessly across every chain in the
ecosystem. Most recently, Nervos began development on the first
cross-chain bridge to Cardano, enabling users to use Nervos and
Cardano's native currencies interchangeably, as well as create
their own tokens across both chains.
The Nervos Network is a collection of protocols and public
blockchain ecosystem aiming to solve the biggest challenges facing
blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum today.
The Nervos Common Knowledge Base (CKB) allows any crypto-asset
to be stored with the security, immutability, and permissionless
nature of Bitcoin while enabling smart contracts and layer 2
scaling. Its unique crypto-economic model is designed to better
align the interests of users, developers, and miners as compared to
