According to a recent report, Opera browser now allows US users to purchase virtual cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum through Apple Pay. This will significantly reduce the time flow of cryptocurrency transactions. As the first browser with a built-in crypto wallet on both the Mac and iOS, Opera browser cooperates with American cryptocurrency brokerage company Wyre to allow US users in Opera to purchase bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies using a debit card or Apple Pay.
Charles Hamel, head of encryption technology for Opera browser, said that obtaining cryptocurrencies was a tedious process in the past. However, with Apple Pay, it is now a seamless process. Users can now complete a transaction on about 30 seconds. He believes that this will “change the rules of the game”.
