Opera, the Web3 browser, and Unstoppable Domains, the non-fungible token (NFT) domain provider, have announced that users can now access all domain endings, including .x, .crypto, and .nft, across Opera’s browsers. Additionally, Opera and Unstoppable are offering a free .nft domain that matches an Opera user’s Twitter handle after account verification.
Opera Expands Web3 Capabilities With Access to Polygon Domains
Unstoppable Domains, the crypto domain provider, and Web3 browser Opera announced the firms are expanding their partnership to support all Unstoppable top-level domains, including .nft, .crypto, .wallet, and .x. The two companies believe that these domains offer an accessible digital identity system, enabling anyone to create a Web3 website using an Unstoppable domain.
In November 2022, Web3 browser company Opera launched degenknows.io, a tool for tracking and exploring NFT analytics. The following month, Opera announced the Alteon Launchpad, enabling users to mint NFTs without needing any coding experience. Jorgen Arnesen, Opera’s executive vice president for mobile, stated that “Unstoppable Domains offers powerful mechanisms for anyone to take control of their digital identity.”
Arnesen stated that the collaboration allows users to “safely and securely access Web3 content through every version of the Opera browser.” Additionally, the integration with Unstoppable enables the use of human-readable domains, such as “rockstar.nft,” with the Opera Crypto Wallet. This means that a user can share the name “rockstar.nft” to receive assets, rather than using a long alphanumeric cryptocurrency address.
Opera has been involved with crypto assets for some time and emphasizes privacy with its ad blocker, tracker blocker, and VPN as standard features. The browser first introduced a cryptocurrency wallet integrated into the browsing experience in July 2018. On Feb. 16, Opera’s shares listed on Nasdaq fell by 1.48%, but year-to-date statistics indicate the stock is up 22.33%. As of September 2022, Opera’s net income is down by 60.07%, and its net profit margin has decreased by 68.81%.
