Opera has released the iOS version of its Ethereum-friendly mobile browser, with an Ethereum wallet and support for Ethereum-based dApps.

Norway-based internet browser company Opera has launched the iOS version of its mobile web browser, Opera Touch, according to a press release shared with Cointelegraph.

Opera Touch reportedly supports the Ethereum (ETH) protocol and the Ethereum Web3 application programming interface (API). This means that the browser accommodates Ethereum-based decentralized applications (DApps) and all ERC-20 tokens, stablecoins, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The browser also is said to feature a cryptocurrency wallet for storing Ether, the “Opera Crypto Wallet.”

Opera released the Android version of its mobile browser at the end of 2018, which offers these same Ethereum-related capabilities. Opera Touch, however, purports to be the first mobile browser on iOS with ‘Web 3’ support and a crypto wallet

The Head of Crypto at Opera browsers, Charles Hamel, commented on the release of Opera’s latest browser iteration, saying:

“We believe that all modern browsers should integrate a crypto wallet. This will enable new business models to emerge on the web. Opera is the first browser to make using crypto on the Web seamless and easy. Following a strong demand from the crypto- community, we are now making this experience available on iOS.”

For this new release, Opera says it has partnered with the crypto collectible dApp “Marble.Cards.” This application reportedly turns website URLs into unique collectible cards that are registered as NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain.

As previously reported by Cointelegraph, a crypto collectible released in a promotional auction for the blockchain-based game “F1 Delta Time” sold in May for 415.9 ETH—$110,600 at the time of the sale.
