Opera Mobile Browser – The Norwegian browser-maker Opera has announced that Opera users will not be able to buy cryptocurrencies direct from their website browser. However, will enable users to buy cryptocurrencies directly on their smartphones using Opera for Android. The app features a digital wallet top up option via an integration with Sweden’s online cryptocurrency brokerage Safello. The feature is being rolled out in Scandinavia first, and said to be already available in Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
“We think that the next important phase for crypto will come from usage and that for it to reach wider adoption, it has to be easy to buy and easy to use,” said Charles Hamel, Product Lead for Crypto at Opera. ”We believe that the browser will be the entry point for these use cases. Thanks to our partnership with Safello, we are taking one more step towards this vision.”
Some perks that will be offered to the users in the three Scandinavian countries include: reduced fees of 2.5% from Safello (Sweden), and 5% reduced fee for users in Norway and Denmark.
