Only Scandinavian country users have this option at the moment

Ethereum cryptocurrency can now be purchased directly through the wallet embedded in the Opera browser application for Android devices. However, at this stage, this opportunity is available to residents of only three Scandinavian countries: Sweden, Norway and Denmark, reports Breakermag.

You can buy cryptocurrency using credit, debit cards and payment systems, while creating a separate account for this is not necessary. Users will only need to log in to BankID electronic identification system in Norway and Sweden or NemID in Denmark.

Customer verification is provided by Safello service, regulated by the Swedish Financial Supervision Authority. It is worth noting, however, quite high commissions of the service upon purchase - they usually make up 7%, but at the initial stage there will be a discount: 2.5% for users from Sweden and 5% for residents of Denmark and Norway.

According to the developers, the transfer of the ether to the user's wallet occurs within one minute.

We hope that by removing all this friction, developers will be able to reach a wider audience more easily, and in turn build new web3 services that have a more mainstream appeal.

Binance has updated the application for the Android OS. Now users can buy cryptocurrency using their credit cards.

In particular, the feature of buying Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash with your credit card is now available.

At the same time, the launch of the Binance Singapore crypto-fiat exchange took place. So far, only one trading pair is available to users of the site - BTC / SGD, but later in the listing other coins may appear.

Singapore users need not only to create an account, but also to link it to an account in the local Xfers payment service, which provides cryptowallet approved by local regulators.

It is noteworthy that earlier Xfers was a partner of Coinbase, when the latter launched its services in Singapore, but relations between the companies were terminated.
