Opera to introduce Crypto Top-Up in the UK

Good news for Opera users, Opera now offers top-up of cryptocurrency to their digital wallets via bank account or the banking app, Revolut.

Opera has been known to provide a freeware web browser since it was initial release in 1995. They offer their browser service on different platforms such as the desktop, mobile, and smartphones. With their continuous expansion and adaptation of the recent technology, Opera now offers cryptocurrency top-up for its users in the United Kingdom.

After their service has become popular in the United States and selected European counties in the early part of 2020, Opera has decided to get the services available to the U.K. The expansion is with the help and established a partnership with Ramp, a cryptoprocessor.

The main goal is to provide people with low-fee crypto top-ups via bank account or Revolut. The head of Crypto at Opera, Charles Hamel mentioned that U.K. citizens would be enabled to purchase Ethereum (ETH) and more other cryptos shortly.

Opera launched its first crypto wallet in 2018, which was a success. It also became an influence to support other cryptocurrencies like BTC and ETH and other ERC-20 and ERC-721 tokens. As of today, the Opera crypto wallet has more than 170,000 monthly active users.

The browser company has been making noise in pushing crypto-wallet developments. Opera became the first browser that got into decentralizing web pages. Unstoppable Domains, a blockchain domain operator by Tim Draper, helped to make this happen.

Opera has made its game-changer in the U.S. by launching Bitcoin and Ether wallets during the early part of 2020. The users have made direct crypto purchases with their debit cards and Apple Pay. The company has a collaboration with Ledger Capital, a tech company to conduct investigations on potential blockchain applications for Opera products.
