NEW YORK, February 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Nervous today announced the completion of the Layer 1 integration with the native crypto wallet of Opera, (NASDAQ: OPRA) the company behind the famous eponymous cross-platform web browser. Starting today, Opera’s millions of users can send and receive $CKB in the crypto wallet built into the Opera browser on Android.
Nervos is the latest blockchain to complete an integration with the Opera browser after Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Celo. The completion of the integration comes as more users and institutions seek to seamlessly interact with their favorite decentralized applications (dapps), games and metaverse platforms and give crypto transactions powered by Web3 technology an extra layer of security. Opera‘s flagship Android browser gives developers direct and frictionless access to web3 services across channels, including Nervos. Once the next phase of integration is complete, the wallet will support token transactions on layer 2 of Nervos, Godwoken. Opera’s browser-friendly wallet will support $CKB in the future to attract blockchain developers. Nervos Layer 2 will also be integrated into Opera’s new Crypto Browser project, a dedicated Web3 browser currently in beta.
“Opera is pursuing a multi-channel strategy as we work on the future of Web3 and embrace blockchain technologies in our products. It is with great pleasure that we welcome Nervos to Opera on Android and look forward to integrating the Nervos Layer 2 in the near future,” said Susie Batthead of the crypto ecosystem at Opera.
With the current integration, users of both ecosystems can start sending and receiving $CKB tokens through Opera’s integrated non-custodial wallet. Additionally, users have direct access to Nervos’ dApps ecosystem, which supports NFT, DeFi, games, and other apps.
“Completing the integration is an important milestone as our respective communities can now seamlessly interact across both ecosystems,” said Kevin Wang, co-founder of Nervos. “As we look to the future of decentralization, integrations with notable companies such as Opera will continue to play an important role in our continued drive toward true blockchain interoperability and the successful future of Web3.”
Nervos’ integration with Opera is the latest ecosystem development from the public network as it builds the next booming DeFi ecosystem. With the launch of several solutions on the mainnet, including the Force Bridge cross-chain bridge and its first Layer 2 Godwoken, Nervos welcomes several new developers, projects, and other chains to interact and engage with its network. More recently, Nervos completed its cross-chain bridge to Binance Smart Chain, further propelling its multi-chain strategy.
The Nervos Network is a collection of protocols and public blockchain ecosystem aimed at solving the biggest challenges facing blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum today.
The Nervos Common Knowledge Base (CKB) is the layer 1, proof-of-work, public permissionless blockchain protocol of the Nervos network. It 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 with first-generation blockchains.
