The average web user could be hesitant to dabble with Web3 but with the integration of Solana, Polygon, and other browsers, they can access the technologies from the safety of the browsers which provides a dedicated Web3 experience according to EVM Mobile at Opera Joregan Arnesen. Opera is one of the oldest web browsers which has been onlien since 1995 the company launched the first web browser with the integrated Ethereum wallet and basic Web3 support in 2018 opening access to a variety of ERC20 tokens that power dapps as well as ERC-721 tokens often used for minting digital collectibles.
The company said it sees layer-2 ecosystems as a main strategy for the mission to remain chain agnostic and to bring more users to the network. The term layer-2 referred to blockchain networks that are built off a larger mainnet like Ethereum and in moving activity of the mainnet, the kinds of networks can scale faster. Ronin, StarkEx, Polygon all fo are examples of layer2 crypto networks. Ronin powers the popular play to earn a game dubbed Axie Infinity.
Accoridng to Opera, Solana is a viable player in the blockchain sector that offers high scalability and low transaction costs but also an energy-efficient consensus model. Solana is energy-efficient because it uses es a proof of stake that leverages validators rather than miners to validate the transactions on the network.
