Opera Now Supporting .crypto Domain Names

In our recent article about blockchain-based domain names, we discussed the potential issue of browsers needing to support these new domains for them to work right.  

Earlier this week Unstoppable Domains announced that the Opera browser for Android would support the .crypto domain name. 

Opera is the first browser to support the new domain names.

The Opera Android app seems built for the shift as it already has a built-in crypto wallet. 

The TLD’s from Unstoppable Domains can also be accessed via a downloadable extension in Chrome. 

The alternative blockchain-based domain names biggest hurdle has been that they don’t work automatically on all browsers.

However, Unstoppable domains has an advantage in getting new browsers to support its domain names because blockchain-based domain names stop censorship.
