MiniPay lands in Ghana to simplify peer-to-peer financial transactions

Two Ghanaians benefitting from Opera Mini's new digital wallet, MiniPay.

Hello readers,

We’re here to share some big news that could change the way you handle your finances. After a successful rollout in Nigeria and Kenya, Opera is introducing  MiniPay – a self-custodial dollar stablecoin wallet integrated right into the Opera Mini browser – to users in Ghana.

Mobile money transfers grew to GH¢1.190 trillion in the first eight months of 2023, but despite significant growth, difficulties – such as high transaction fees and the impact of taxation on digital transactions – remain. MiniPay was born out of a deep understanding of the challenges Ghanaians face when it comes to navigating the world of digital finance.

MiniPay is a cutting-edge blockchain-based digital wallet integrated into the Opera Mini browser. It stores your funds in cUSD – a stable asset pegged to the US Dollar – to ensure that they’re safe from local currency stability issues. With MiniPay your transactions are completed in less than 5 seconds, and cost less than GH¢ 1. MiniPay is not just efficient, it’s accessible – all you need is a phone number! Compact 2MB in size, you easily login via your Google credentials. 

This fast, reliable, and user-friendly wallet is now natively integrated into the renowned Opera Mini browser. Downloaded over a billion times in the Google Play Store, Opera Mini has been a popular browser in Africa for over 18 years. The first portal to the web for tens of millions of users, it remains popular for its revolutionary Data Compression technology that helps users save up to 90% of their data during browsing. Opera’s periodic free data campaigns additionally grant Airtel and Safaricom users up to 1.5GB of complementary data each month.

Now available for Opera Mini users throughout Ghana, MiniPay is a testament to Opera’s commitment to meeting the needs of its local users. A tool for financial empowerment and a window into the opportunities in the world of Web3, the wallet promises its users a new lease on financial services.

So, are you ready to unlock the potential of fast, affordable payments? Download or update your Opera Mini browser to the latest version, set up your MiniPay wallet, and start sending more and paying less!
