Coinbase Wallet is a separate, stand-alone app that allows users to store their crypto. It also lets users explore the decentralized web with a dApp browser and use applications such as Uniswap and OpenSea.
Coinbase Wallet helps users manage their private keys and store their crypto assets directly on their devices without a centralized broker or exchange, this means you can’t connect Coinbase Wallet directly to your bank account or buy and sell crypto with US dollars or fiat currencies.
Coinbase wallet is called a”self-custody mobile wallet” and web3 browser. It gives you access to a wide spectrum of decentralized innovations.
