As of now, Coinbase has not said anything about WalletConnect compatibility. However, based on their recent moves, it seems unlikely that they will support it anytime soon.
Coinbase has been on a mission to make cryptocurrency more accessible to the masses. They’ve done this by creating an easy-to-use exchange and launching products like Coinbase Earn and the Coinbase Wallet.
The Coinbase Wallet is a non-custodial wallet that allows users to store their own crypto. It also allows users to interact with dapps on the Ethereum network.
WalletConnect is a protocol that allows wallets to connect to dapps. It’s used by popular wallets like MetaMask, Trust Wallet, and Enjin Wallet.
Coinbase’s own wallet does not support WalletConnect. This means that if you want to use Coinbase Wallet to interact with dapps, you’ll need to use a different wallet.
There are a few reasons why Coinbase may not want to support WalletConnect. For one, it would require them to make changes to their wallet. This could be a lot of work for something that may not be widely used.
Additionally, supporting WalletConnect would mean that Coinbase would need to trust the wallets that support it. Given that these wallets are non-custodial, this could be a risk that Coinbase is not willing to take.
For now, it seems unlikely that Coinbase will add support for WalletConnect. However, they may change their mind in the future if the demand is there.
