What do company representatives say? With the integration, Opera users will have access to Elrond Standard Digital Token (ESDT), a token issuance standard, in addition to native EGLD tokens. Opera senior product manager Danny Yao said the company is focused on multichain, having previously integrated Ethereum, Bitcoin, Polygon, and BNB Chain. He explained:

“Our aim is to be an understandable and secure entry point to Web3 for anyone interested in crypto. This also means we have provided a wallet selector feature that lets our users choose which wallet they want to use to interact with a particular DApp. We also have a secure clipboard, safeguarding our user’s data as they copy-paste sensitive data such as wallet addresses or bank account numbers.”

As of September 22 14:00 UTC, EGLD is trading at $47,31, down 0,8% overnight, according to CoinGecko.

What is known about Elrond? It's a scalable blockchain network that offers various infrastructure services for DApps, enterprise applications, and the new Internet economy. The Elrond blockchain is one of Europe's first carbon-negative blockchains, guaranteeing Opera users access to environmentally friendly solutions.
