The company Opera has opened the possibility to users of its browser for Android to buy cryptocurrency Ethereum (ETH) for Fiat money directly via the built-in crypto.

Implement new service was possible thanks to the cooperation with cryptocurrency broker Safello, which provides the exchange of Fiat currency for cryptocurrency. Payments can be made using credit and debit cards, and also checked the payment networks, including Swish in Sweden, said the company in a statement.

Initially the new service will be available to users in Sweden, Norway and Denmark. The identity of buyers of cryptocurrency will be checked through solution verification BankID and NemID.
