Opera Eyes Polygon for Next Mobile Wallet Integration

Browser developer Opera plans to add Polygon to its native wallet early next year, a move that would extend the Norwegian company’s reach into a popular Ethereum layer 2.

The debut lines up Polygon, an ethereum scaling solution, as Opera’s first supported layer-2 token. MATIC is the gas for Polygon’s EVM-compatible ecosystem of 3,000 decentralized applications, including trading, NFTs and lending. Being in Opera’s native wallet lineup means users will have more seamless access to that realm.

Not every Opera user will have that functionality from Q1, a press release said. Limited rollout will begin with its Android mobile user base. Two years ago Opera estimated that pool was around 80 million monthly active users. That’s a sizable chunk of its full audience near 380 million, according to August figures.

But the door is open for a broader release to Opera’s full audience of 380 million, a figure from August. An Opera rep told CoinDesk through Polygon spokespeople that integrations “typically” begin with the Android app before branching out to iOS and desktop. “This was also the development path for our crypto wallet.”

Separately, Opera has said that it will add wallet support for Solana in Q1.
