Starting today, Coinbase Wallet users can use their favorite decentralized apps (dapps) on any desktop browser with Coinbase Wallet SDK.
Coinbase Wallet SDK acts as a secure bridge between your Coinbase Wallet app and your desktop browser. To get started, all you have to do is scan the SDK QR code with your Wallet app. You can then use dapps anywhere, while keeping your funds safe and secure on your mobile Wallet app.
Since we launched Coinbase Wallet, hundreds of thousands of users have explored the new decentralized web through Wallet’s mobile dapp browser. People tell us they love the best-in-class Coinbase Wallet experience–biometric authentication to keep funds secure; ; support for a variety of coins and collectibles; access to the latest dapps–all wrapped up in a beautiful user experience.
But to date, the Coinbase Wallet experience has been limited to mobile devices. Users on desktop web browsers have had to resort to installing clunky browser extensions, copying and pasting private keys across devices, and seeing fragmented wallet balances. Now, Coinbase Wallet SDK enables a simpler way to use dapps.
To try the SDK, make sure you’ve updated to the latest version of (version 19.1 on iOS and 18.0 on Android). Now visit any of the dapps that have integrated with SDK (listed below, with more on the way) and click the option to connect your Coinbase Wallet. Next, scan the QR code with your Coinbase Wallet QR scanner. This creates a secure encrypted link between the Wallet app and your browser. Finally, approve access to the DApp and you’re all set! Now, whenever you submit a transaction, you’ll get a ping on your phone for you to approve the transaction.
The SDK also supports persistent connections to multiple dapps, so you don’t have to scan a QR code each time you want to use a new dapp.
The SDK has been tested with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Brave, and Opera browsers. We plan to roll out support for native mobile apps and more currencies in the future.
As part of today’s announcement, some of the most popular crypto dapps in the ecosystem are launching support for the SDK, including:
If you want to know if your favorite DApp supports the SDK, look for the option to connect your Coinbase Wallet. If you are a DApp developer, WalletLink and does not require you to deploy any additional infrastructure.
We see the SDK as a critical way to expand access to dapps, which is why we want this experience to be available to everyone in the crypto community. To make that possible, we’re open sourcing WalletLink today and making it available for any dapp developer and any wallet that wants to integrate it into their product.
Look out for a blog post on the technical side of the SDK, explaining how it works and why we decided to open source it.
