  • As of February 14, Safello has introduced a new level-based fee structure where all purchases and sales are measured over an aggregate rolling 12-months period. The new fee structure provides additional transparency and simplifies the trading process for customers, where customers automatically receive a more favorable fee level depending on trading volume, compared with the previous structure where an application was needed to obtain a premium membership.
  • As of February 21, Safello has shut down Safello Widget and Partner Widget and replaced this with a new affiliate partner program, through the global partnership management platform impact.com.

  • On March 14, Safello announced that a letter of intent (LOI) had been entered into with Avanza Bank (wholly owned subsidiary to Avanza Bank Holding AB) regarding a potential partnership relating to cryptocurrency services. The ambition with entering into the LOI is to evaluate a potential cooperation regarding distribution of Safello's cryptocurrency services via Avanza's platform.
  • Safello has also entered into a partnership with the tax service provider Divly, to offer its users a seamless process to calculate taxes and manage tax reports in relation to their cryptocurrency transactions. The integration with Divly simplifies the declaration process because users get access to tools that automatically calculate the outcome and create a K4 report.
