Coinbase Wallet also plans to let users interact with the Solana ecosystem in the future, including connecting to Solana decentralized applications and viewing and managing their Solana NFTs directly within their wallet extension. But there is no specific timeline for that as well, the spokesperson said.

Coinbase Wallet is multi-chain, supporting several blockchains, including Ethereum, Avalanche, Polygon and BNB Chain. The wallet has more than 13 million users across its mobile applications and Chrome browser extension, the spokesperson said.

Coinbase Wallet directly competes with wallets like MetaMask.
