Opera, the internet browser that made its name by offering fast speeds, has recently announced a partnership with Solana Labs.
Opera seems to be vying with Brave for the title of Web 3 browser champion. On Friday, December 10, Opera announced a partnership with Solana Labs in an official blog post. The browser will now support the native blockchain due to this collaboration. As a result of this, the Solana wallet and all of the ecosystem’s dApps will be integrated.
Opera is one of the fastest-growing internet browsers, with over 400 million users worldwide. It is also an acclaimed company in the world of Webb 3, which is an open-source, decentralized web platform that offers many benefits for content creators and consumers.
According to Opera, the merger is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2022. Till then, blockchain advantages may be enjoyed on desktop and mobile browsers without any limits.
Opera Solane’s fascination with Solane is unsurprising. Since at least 2018, the browser has focused on supporting cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology, and so-called Web 3.0 applications.
However, the markets do not seem very enthused by this news. Opera’s stock ended Friday’s trading session at $7.24, a loss of 4.36 percent. This is, however, a slight gain from the $6.96 level at which the week began.
Additionally, the revelation had little effect on SOL’s worth. The coin continues a negative trend that started in early November, just after the all-time high. Solana’s native token, SOL, concluded the day at $166.97, a loss of 7.86 percent. The price has now adjusted to $169 at the time of writing, and this is still over 35% below the ATH.
