Opera Provides Option To Buy Ether In Browser
Traders from three Scandinavian countries now have the opportunity to purchase ether using a wallet built into the Opera browser app for Android devices, Breakermag reports.
At first, only traders living in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden will be able to use the crypto wallet. They will have the opportunity to replenish their balance instantly, thanks to the cooperation of the Norwegian company Opera with the Safello crypto exchange from Sweden. Since the client’s personal data can be automatically transferred to Safello, ether will be available for purchase without creating an account on the trading platform.
Charles Hamel, leading developer of crypto products at Opera, stated that there are three obstacles to the massive introduction of digital assets: the wallet and browser division complicates the use of cryptos on the Internet, the process of acquiring assets is quite complicated and, finally, the third problem is product scaling. Having solved these difficulties, it will be possible to create attractive solutions for customers, according to Hamel.
Cryptocurrency can be bought in the new service using credit cards, but the client will have to pay a commission. At the initial stage, it will be 2.5% for traders from Sweden and 5% for clients from Denmark and Norway. In the future, there will be a single commission of 7% for everyone.
As previously reported, Opera introduced a crypto wallet based on Ethereum in its Web 3 browser.
