While we have not come across more interesting crypto-related stories today, one of them seems to be worth looking at. Namely, Opera launched a possibility of buying cryptocurrencies via its mobile Android browser in some countries, as the company announced on Wednesday. Opera started to allow its users to buy Ethereum directly via its browser wallet. To provide such service, the company has partnered with Safello which is crypto exchange regulated by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority. “Safello reduces the process of buying cryptocurrency from hours, or even days, to less than a minute”, as the announcement reports. Now only users in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark could buy cryptocurrency using this solution. Let us recall that Opera launched a built-in crypto wallet within its browser in December.
