Opera, an internet browser with support for Web 3.0 applications and a built-in cryptocurrency wallet, has announced its integration with Polygon (MATIC). Its implementation is scheduled for the first quarter of 2022, which will open the Polygon ecosystem to more than 80 million Opera users on Android mobile devices, devices with other operating systems and various platforms.

Polygon is a Tier 2 Ethereum (ETH) scaling solution designed to lower gas charges and speed up transaction processing times.
Thanks to this integration, Opera users will be able to access Polygon decentralized applications (dApps), including Sushiswap, Curve and Aave, as well as blockchain games and platforms with non-fungible tokens Decentraland, Opensea, Sandbox, etc.
Opera Mobile Vice President Jorgen Arnese said the new integration will help “fix the biggest challenge facing crypto enthusiasts,” which is high gas charges and slow transaction speeds.
Ethereum scaling solutions like Polygon have become vital because the ETH blockchain can only process 15 transactions per second. At times of peak network activity, gas prices can skyrocket to absurd amounts. Sometimes they are higher than in decentralized finance protocols, where multiple smart contract confirmations are required to issue a loan.
