Coinbase allows now for a new feature via the decentralized web feature for its customers to access dapps from any browser using the new system called Walletlink. Let’s find out more about it in the altcoin news today.
The popular San Francisco-based crypto exchange has announced officially today in a blog post that the open-sourced Walletlink acts as a secure bridge between the Coinbase ecosystem and the traditional web so this will be easier for the users of the platform. The feature will enable the Coinbase wallet users to access and administer their funds separately from their crypto holdings on Coinbase.com from a dapp desktop interface for the first time according to the Coinbase walled product lead Sid Coelho-Prabhu. Coinbase has a long supported use of the decentralized platforms with the help of the mobile app which is a feature that the company says managed to generate more than thousands of users. Now, the company has a plan to expand the access beyond the mobile app to desktop browsers such as Google Chrome, Brave and Opera. Though a user’s private keys are still stored securely on their mobile devices.
Coinbase stated that this way they will save the users from having to install ‘’clunky browser extensions, copying and pasting private keys across devices and seeing fragmented wallet balances.’’ Instead, once a user scans a QR code that propagates an encrypted link between the wallet app and the browser, the system will also provide a security feature that will ping the users on their mobile devices after they make a transaction. Coinbase allows for the users to now get a hold of the most popular dapps in the market. The first four dapps supported by WalletLink offer decentralized financial services for crypto holdings. Even Coelho-Prabhu stated that the company approached the most popular dapp on the market with new features including Compound which is a protocol to earn interest but also an ETH lending service, IDEX, decentralized exchange and a protocol for margin trading.
Coinbase plans to expand access to other dapp categories and in fact, Coelho stated that the company’s wallet worked with programmers to make the development process as simple as possible. In addition, as we can read in the latest cryptocurrency news, Coinbase wallet software enables access to the ERC-20 token platform and token airdrops as well as collecting non-fungible tokens and P2P crypto transactions.
