Users of the Coinbase crypto exchange can now access Coinbase Wallet through a standalone browser extension, bypassing the need to confirm transactions on their smartphones, the company said in a blog post Monday.
- Coinbase first introduced the extension in May, and now customers can use it to browse decentralized apps, access thousands of cryptocurrencies, trade on decentralized exchanges, earn interest and collect non-fungible tokens, Coinbase said.
- In addition, users can import an existing self-custody wallet, including MetaMask, Trust Wallet, Coinbase Wallet or other Ethereum-based wallets.
