Opera browser now crypto-friendly

Opera, almost universally known for their internet browser, declared through a press release dated 6 February, its newest offer to allow Android users to buy cryptocurrencies from the relevant browser.

The Opera browser for Android features seamless integration, with Safello’s brokerage, for a hassle-free crypto wallet top up. This handout is specifically applicable to the Scandinavian countries of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. Users would be benefited to conveniently fuel-up their Ethereum wallet. This latest development is technically called ‘Web 3-ready browser’ and its respective app is Opera for Android. 

Charles Hamel, Product Lead for Crypto at Opera emphatically cited:

“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. 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.”

The development comes as a continued foresight of Opera to stay updated to cryptocurrency trends and spare the users from unnecessary problems. In December last year Opera released a browser app for Android which supported a crypto-wallet.

Scandinavians will be much benefited from Opera's move to support crypto from its browser.

The announcement highlighted Safello’s solution to verify user’s identities securely with ‘BankID’ and ‘NemID’. The customers are also eligible to enjoy the convenience of payments with credit and debit cards. Transfers over trusted payment networks, such as Swish in Sweden, are now supported like a breeze.

To promote early-bird offers, users in Sweden can avail a discounted fee of 2.5% from Safello. This offer is for a limited time. Likewise, users in Norway and Denmark will have to settle for a fee of 5%.

Frank Schuil, CEO of Safello, talked highly about the partnership for its ability in bringing cryptocurrencies to the masses and erasing hype. He said both new and experienced users now have the power of cryptocurrencies at their fingertips. This is evident because Safello cuts the process of buying cryptocurrencies from hours to less than a minute.

Safello is conveniently placed as one of Europe’s most trusted online brokerage services. It is registered with the Financial Supervisory Authority in Sweden and the brokerage binds all the transactions on its platform to the highest regulations.
