We’re thrilled to expand our partnership with Opera, the company behind the privacy and security-focused web browsers, to bring the power of digital identity to Opera’s hundreds of millions of users worldwide. Opera users can now build and access Web3 websites powered by Unstoppable across all of Opera’s Web3-enabled desktop and mobile browsers—including the Opera Browser on Desktop (Windows, Mac, and Linux) and Android and the Opera Crypto Browser. Additionally, for the first time, Opera Crypto Wallet users across mobile and Desktop can use Unstoppable Domains to easily transfer crypto to and from their wallet. 

With the latest update, Opera is extending its previously supported resolution for .crypto and .zil Web3 domains to include native resolution support for more of Unstoppable’s Web3 TLDs (top-level domains or domain endings), including .nft, .x, and .wallet, across all Web3-enabled products.

In celebration of the partnership, Opera users can claim a free .nft domain to match their Twitter handle by simply verifying their account, checking availability of their free Web3 domain and updating their Twitter with their Web3 domain name.

Web3 Made Easy with Your Digital Identity

Bringing the most accessible digital identity system to a community of millions simplifies the leap into Web3. Anyone can now use their Unstoppable domain to create a Web3 website, like sandy.crypto or mago.x, visible on all of Opera’s Web3-enabled browsers that offer native support for the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS). As a completely peer-to-peer network, IPFS support ensures websites are truly owned by the user. Unstoppable domains are blockchain assets held in a crypto wallet and fully owned by users, so creators can rest assured they own their identity and content outright—without the risk of takedowns or DDoS attacks. 

“Expanding access to digital sovereignty is our North Star, and onboarding millions of Opera users to the next era of the Internet is a pivotal leap to deliver on that promise,” said Sandy Carter, SVP and Channel Chief at Unstoppable Domains. “We’re delighted to help a new generation take ownership of their digital identities while championing one of the leading brands when it comes to privacy.”

Additionally, human-readable domains like haley.nft can be used to transfer crypto into and out of the Opera Crypto Wallet. By replacing the need for long and complicated crypto wallet addresses, Opera and Unstoppable Domains are enabling a simpler transition to Web3 for new users. 

Browsers Built for Security and Privacy

With Unstoppable Domains, Opera’s global community can create their digital identity and browse them on Opera Android and Crypto Browser—all while ensuring their data and privacy remains in their hands. Opera users can also safely browse Web3 content without the risk of being tracked thanks to Trackerblocker, Adblocker and VPN, which are standard features with the Opera Browser.

“This collaboration means our users can safely and securely access Web3 content through every version of the Opera browser,” said Jorgen Arnesen, Executive Vice President Mobile at Opera. “Unstoppable Domains offers powerful mechanisms for anyone to take control of their digital identity and forge a new relationship with the internet itself.”

Opera has been bringing secure and accessible browsing solutions to its customers for over 25 years. Unstoppable Domains is on a mission to create a user-owned, digital identity for every person on the planet. Together, we’re opening up a powerful new avenue to give people more ownership of their content, driving equity, privacy, and empowerment.
