It has been reported that with the integration, users will be able to access a feature that lets them drag and drop media files into the browser, which writes a smart contract and uploads the file into a blockchain, turning the files into NFTs.
Susie Batt, an executive at Opera, said:
“Now, our users will be able to create NFTs instantly and simply with no platform usage fees, encouraging more people to explore the burgeoning NFT industry.”
However, with the tool, the team believes that users without any Web3 experience will also be able to access the Web3 economy. This means that artists from different backgrounds will be able to create NFTs in a less complicated way. The NFT minting tool is provided by a firm called Alteon, a project that's focused on simplifying workflows.
Matt Cimaglia, the co-founder of Alteon, said that the goal of this integration is to "level the playing field" for content creators from various backgrounds.
“Our partnership with Opera bridges the tech gap between traditional creatives and the Web3 creator economy, so anyone can benefit from the opportunities that blockchain technologies offer.”
The report said that on January 19, Opera released the Web3 browser's beta version to Windows, Mac, and Android to allow users to access decentralized applications (DApps), games, and metaverse platforms. On April 15, the project was able to make its way into the iPhone and the iPad.
Thus, Opera’s dedicated Web3 browser called the Opera Crypto Browser has ventured into the realm of NFTs with its latest integration with a launchpad.
