The Android version of major web browser Opera now integrates a function that lets its users purchase Ethereum.
According to the press release, the new service is available to users based out of Sweden, Norway and Denmark due to Opera’s new partnership with brokerage firm Safello. Safello, according to Opera, is registered with the Financial Supervisory Authority (FSA) in Sweden.
Julia Szyndzielorz, senior PR manager at Opera, told Cointelegraph in an email that Opera’s addition of ETH purchasing through its browser allows users to immediately buy the cryptocurrency online.
As Cointelegraph reported in December of last year, Opera has launched its Web 3-oriented browser for Android, with crypto wallet integration, support for Ethereum and interactions with decentralized applications (DApps). According to today’s press release, the ETH purchased using the new feature is immediately ready for use in DApps.
In August last year, Opera added a built-in crypto wallet to the desktop version of its browser.
More recently, smartphone manufacturer Brave announced that decentralized browser Brave would be the default browser on their first native blockchain phone.
