Major Headlines


New Switzerland Cryptocurrency Exchange


Switzerland has been a leader in the cryptocurrency for years because of their favorable laws for businesses that handle or work with the technology. Now one of the traditional fiat stock exchanges based in the country has recently announced plans for a new platform that will speed up the trading process on their exchange. The SIX exchange trade process currently takes more than four steps to engage, and can take more than a day to complete. The company will integrate a blockchain technology style system to drastically reduce these issues. It will not be offered for all stocks on the exchange, but they have plans for support of a wider range of stocks and bonds in the future. “This is the beginning of a new era for capital markets infrastructures. For us it is abundantly clear that much of what is going on in the digital space is here to stay and will define the future of our industry.” - CEO Jos Dijsselhof


Opera Browser Direct ETH Purchases


The opera browser for Android mobile devices has announced a major upgrade for cryptocurrency users. The company partnered with regulated crypto brokerage Safello to provide a cash-to-crypto exchange for ETH directly from the Opera Browser wallet. Purchases can be made with credit and debit cards, as well as payment networks such as Swish in Sweden. Safello is registered with Sweden’s Financial Supervisory Authority, and will verify users who make purchases using Sweden’s BankID and Denmark’s NemID citizens’ identity solutions. Transactions will be nearly instantaneous. The service will be offered in Sweden, Norway and Denmark for the initial launch, but the company has plans to expand the service. “We think that the next important phase for crypto will come from usage and that for it to reach wider adoption, it has to be easy to buy and easy to use.” - Charles Hamel, Opera’s crypt product lead


Abra App Tokenized Stocks


Abra is now offering an introduction to tokenized assets in the United States. The app’s newest feature will give users the ability to buy portions of traditional investment instruments. The app currently supports 50 fiat currencies and over 30 cryptocurrencies, and now offers fractional investments in exchange-traded funds. The feature will be available for users in over 155 countries. It will have zero trading fees for the remainder of 2019 on the new service. “We are building bitcoin-backed investing products because, for the first time, we can truly democratize access to investment opportunities at global scale. It shouldn’t matter where you live or how much you earn to be able to make investments and participate in capital markets.” - CEO, Bill Barhydt
