Coinbase Expands Features, Allowing Some App Users to Access Ethereum-Based Dapps

Don't miss CoinDesk's Consensus 2022, the must-attend crypto & blockchain festival experience of the year in Austin, TX this June 9-12.

Coinbase Global (COIN) will begin allowing for a “small set” of its app users to access Ethereum-based decentralized apps (dapps) directly from the Coinbase app, according to a blog post Monday.

  • This addition will help users purchase non-fungible tokens (NFT) on various marketplaces including OpenSea and Coinbase’s own NFT platform; trade on decentralized exchanges including Uniswap and SushiSwap; and borrow and lend through decentralized finance (DeFi) platforms including Curve and Compound.

  • These features will be powered by Coinbase's new dapp wallet and browser. The company said it's rolling out the new services in the U.S. on Android first to a limited subset of users, with plans to expand to all users and platforms soon.

  • “Over 95% of the nearly 300 million cryptocurrency investors worldwide have not ventured beyond a centralized exchange,” Andrew Thurman of blockchain analytics firm Nansen told CoinDesk. “This move by Coinbase has the potential to give a new wave of users the chance to explore the frontier of DeFi and NFTs.”
