Opera Launches In-Browser Ethereum Buys For Scandinavian Customers
Opera has partnered with regulated crypto brokerage Safello to offer Ethereum buys directly from its browser-based wallet for those in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark.
Safello will be doing most of the verification and regulation of customers using the different Scandinavian identity solutions such as Sweden’s BankID and Denmark’s NemID. This is the next step for Opera and its expansion into making cryptocurrency approachable following the roll-out of their built-in wallet.
For reference, Coinbase charges its European customers a 1.49 percent fee for bank transfer purchases and 3.99 percent for credit card purchases, in addition to a 0.50 percent spread.
Opera currently controls 3 percent of the total browser use according to StatCounter, relative to Google Chrome’s 62 percent and Safari’s 15 percent.
The “Web 3-ready” Android web browser wallet launched in December from Opera supports Ethereum, as well as other tokens using Ethereum’s ERC-20 standard.
