Opera browser partnered with Unstoppable Domains and introduced support for decentralized sites with the .crypto domain in its Android application. This will not only allow users to visit sites with a new domain, but also make payments in cryptocurrencies.
As explained in the announcement, blockchain domains are stored by the owner, not by registering companies, and decentralized sites are in peer-to-peer networks, not cloud services. This eliminates the intervention of any intermediaries in operating the site and imposing censorship. In addition, working without intermediaries has a positive influence on the speed of the connection to decentralized sites. There are currently 200,000 registered .crypto domains
In addition, Opera has announced that the cryptocurrency purchase feature in Opera for Android has been extended to the entire European Union, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and Switzerland.
