Coinbase, a major US crypto asset trading company, announced on the 12th that it will add an encrypted message function to its crypto asset wallet “Coinbase Wallet”. It uses the communication protocol “XMTP” and allows communication between two Ethereum addresses that use this protocol.
Largest wallet with message function
There have been crypto wallets powered by Web3 messaging before, but this is arguably the largest. There are 1.3 million Coinbase Wallet addresses. The number of Ethereum addresses that can send and receive messages is even larger, including users of Lens, the Web3 social platform.
Portable from applications on XMTP
“Users will be able to easily port conversations from nearly 450 applications built on XMTP to Coinbase Wallet,” said Siddharth Coelho-Prabhu, director of product management. The infrastructure will allow messages on Coinbase Wallet to be completely permissionless and interoperable, giving users the freedom to fully own their messages and transactions through their personal on-chain identity.” rice field.
