👉 Coinbase Launches “Wallet As A Service” To Improve Crypto Onboarding

US crypto exchange Coinbase is launching a “wallet as a service” offering, that will enable companies to tailor blockchain wallets for their customers.

The service is designed to allow companies to include almost invisible wallets within their apps, which could be particularly useful for gaming apps featuring tokens or non-fungible tokens.

Coinbase said the move was aimed at helping firms to attract the next wave of customers to web3, and avoids the use of 24-word seed phrases for ease-of-use for the end user.
