Charles Hamel, head of crypto at Opera, says that U.K. customers will now be able to purchase Ethereum (ETH), with more cryptos coming soon in the near future. 

Since, Opera launched of first crypto wallet back in 2018, the service has rolled out support for a number of cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether, as well as various ERC-20 and ERC-721 tokens.

Hamel adds:

“This means we largely cover most of the top 100 digital assets.”

Opera’s crypto wallet has more than 170,000 monthly active users to date.

After introducing its first crypto wallet for Android users two years ago, Opera browser has been actively pushing crypto-related developments.

In March 2020, Opera became the first browser to enable access to decentralized web pages via a partnership with Unstoppable Domains, a major blockchain domain operator.

Earlier this year, Opera rolled out Bitcoin and Ether wallets in the U.S. and direct crypto purchases with debit cards and Apple Pay.
