We’d like to note that it’s common to confuse the Coinbase Wallet with the normal Coinbase application (also known as Coinbase Consumer). For most, Coinbase Consumer acts as the primary fiat on and off-ramp to purchase digital assets. While users can store their crypto holdings on the Coinbase Consumer application, in reality, they are not actually holding the assets themselves. Instead, Coinbase acts as the primary custodian. In other words, Coinbase Consumer users have to trust Coinbase to hold their private keys. This can obviously be an issue as this reliance on trust largely goes against the ethos of decentralized networks and the notion of being your own bank. As the famous saying goes: “Not your keys, not your Bitcoin”.
With that being said, the Coinbase team understood this dilemma and developed a non-custodial wallet for users to safely store their own private keys.
The Coinbase wallet is currently available on the iOS and Android app stores, averaging a 4.6-star rating with over 1,870 ratings on iOS. This is slightly below par with competitors, like Binance’s Trust wallet (3,690 ratings, 5-star rating) and the Blockchain Wallet (34,000 ratings, 4.8-star rating). Regardless, Coinbase has done a respectable job at developing an intuitive non-custodial wallet for the broader crypto community.
With the Coinbase Wallet, users have access to a wide range of decentralized innovations, including buying and storing Bitcoin, Ether, ERC-20 tokens and other crypto assets, collect rare digital collectibles, and access emerging web3 applications.
As of mid-2021, Coinbase Wallet also has a web browser extension, which enables users to connect to web3 applications more easily on desktop.
Coinbase Wallet supports an expansive list of digital assets. As of writing, the wallet currently allows users to store, send, and receive the following assets:
Coinbase Wallet also has a dApp browser where users can directly interact with new and emerging web3 applications. The browser is almost identical to traditional web browsers, however, when interacting with a decentralized application like Compound, you no longer have to authorize Metamask or similar wallets. Instead, Compound is automatically authorized to your wallet and you can easily borrow or lend funds directly from your Coinbase Wallet.
