Opera just dropped an important and unique update. Its Android version now allows users to buy cryptocurrency directly from their web browsers. How cool is that?
News is that Opera has embraced cryptocurrency with open arms, and added a built-in wallet to its Android and PC browsers late last year. Opera teamed up with Safello, an European Bitcoin exchange to allow Android users top up with Ethereum in seconds.
Charles Hamel, Cryptocurrency Product Lead at Opera reports 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 new feature is currently only available in Norway, Denmark and Sweden, but Safello operates worldwide so hopefully it will be available more widely soon.
