Opera set to harmonise with blockchain domain@ 2021/05/04
Chromium-based web browser Opera is all set to fully integrate with blockchain domain name provider Unstoppable Domains.
The move will provide millions of its users with decentralised web access.
Opera users will now access decentralised websites hosted via the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) using Unstoppable Domains' popular .crypto NFT addresses from the Opera browser.
This will include platforms such as iOS, Android, Windows, Mac or Linux. Opera has over 320 million monthly active users across its offerings, following the addition of a crypto wallet to its browsers in 2019.
Unstoppable Domains was launched in 2018 and provide domain names to users with no renewal fees. Users of Unstoppable Domains have full ownership and control when they claim a domain because it is minted as an NFT on the Ethereum blockchain.
Domain names such as .crypto replace complex wallet addresses for payments across over 40 cryptocurrency wallets and exchanges in addition to accessing the decentralised web through Opera.
