Opera and Ledger Capital Sign Partnership to Explore Possible Blockchain Applications
Opera has decided to sign a partnership with the blockchain firm Ledger Capital. The main intention behind this agreement is to find possible blockchain applications. The information has been released by Opera on a press release on September 28.
In this way, the advisory and financial services firm Ledger Capital will be cooperating with Opera to investigate different use cases of blockchain technology. Both firms would have the possibility to improve their services and products by implementing distributed ledger technology (DLT).
Opera is also known for becoming one of the first web browsers offering a crypto wallet completely integrated into its system. According to Charles Hamel, Product Lead of Opera’s crypto wallet said that using the cryptocurrency wallet integrated into the browser is like ‘sending digital cash straight from your phone.’
With the partnership between Opera and Ledger Capital, the companies will be improving their ecosystems and create valuable services for the community.
Ding’an Fei, Managing Partner at Ledger Capital, said about the agreement:
“We are excited to work with an innovator and industry leader like Opera. Opera has already taken the lead among the major browsers, with the integration of the innovative crypto wallet and investments from other leading crypto companies like Bitmain. We are looking forward to exploring the next steps in how Opera will leverage its massive ecosystem and technical competencies to create exponential value for its user base and the greater blockchain space.”
Opera is working in order to facilitate cryptocurrency adoption around the world. As the company explains, during the last year and a half, the crypto world has seen tremendous activity regarding virtual currencies and the vision for Web 3.0.
Ledger Capital with its veterans in the venture capital and private equity space have experience in the matter after working with companies such as IBM, Microsoft, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, among others.
