Everything You Need To Know About the Coinbase Wallet

The Coinbase Wallet is a simple, non-custodial multicurrency wallet that allows the users to store their crypto assets, including tokens and digital collectibles. The wallet also allows you to explore decentralized apps (dApps) using the mobile application.

Kindly note that the Coinbase Wallet and the Coinbase platform are different products. However, you can transfer funds between these two products at any time. For that, you need to link your Coinbase account to your Coinbase mobile wallet by going to the Settings page in your Coinbase mobile application.

The Coinbase Wallet is a mobile application that is available for Android and iOS users. You do not need a Coinbase account to use the Coinbase Wallet app.  Simply download the application from the Google Play Store and create/ import your wallet and use it.
