Opera has partnered with regulated crypto brokerage Safello to provide the cash-to-crypto exchange to encourage payments with credit and debit cards, along with other payment networks which are reliable including Swish in Sweden.
For the mean time purchasing is only obtainable in Sweden, Norway and Denmark, however in Safello – which can be accesible with Sweden’s Financial Supervisory Authority verify that users who make purchases using Sweden’s Bank ID and Denmark’s NemID citizens’ identity solutions are able to buy.
The process of topping up a wallet with ether method should take a temporary period according to Opera officials.
Charles Hamel, Opera’s crypt product lead said “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.”
Apart from that, customers in Sweden will get a discounted fee of 2.5 percent from Safello for a limited time, while Norway and Denmark users will receive a discounted fee of five percent, according to the announcement that has been made.
Opera launched its “Web 3-ready” Android web browser wallet last year in December and the product supports ether and other tokens using ethereum’s ERC-20 standard.
