All Coinbase Wallet users will now be able to use WalletLink to access any decentralized apps on their browsers via their desktop computers. According to the Coinbase Blog, the program will act as a bridge between the desktop and the user’s wallet.
To start using the new tool, you simply need to scan the WalletLink QR code with your smartphone. This way, it will become considerably easier to keep your funds safe and to use decentralized apps whenever you want.
The decision was taken because several users were already using the web to explore the internet but they were lacking the ability to use dapps on desktop as well. Coinbase Wallet offers a secure way to hold tokens, but Coinbase wanted to deliver more and this is the result of this goal.
Before now, people could only use the app on their mobile devices, but they will be able to use it on their desktop computers now without losing any security.
Several dapps are already tested and fully compatible with the program. Some of them are Compound, Maker, IDEX, Uniswap and dYdX.
The wallet will be fully open source starting today and developers will be able to integrate the current technology with their own products.
In order to use this product, you need to have the updated version of the software, so make sure that your wallet is at least in version 19.1 before trying. So far, the product was tested with the most popular browsers, which included Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Brave, Opera and Microsoft Edge.
