The world’s largest hybrid decentralized exchange is now officially integrated with Coinbase Wallet’s WalletLink.

This new integration will allow Coinbase Wallet users to easily tap into our liquidity pool and access over 450 trading pairs*. For those who prefer working on the big screen, desktop access is just as seamless. Most importantly, accessing IDEX through WalletLink keeps trade liquidity and security at the forefront from custody to trade.

Massive Liquidity for DeFi

During the 2017 bull run, Coinbase was one of the first UX focused fiat gateways to bring in an enormous amount of volume that helped fuel crypto’s explosive growth and brought in over $1B in revenue for Coinbase. Since opening their exchange in 2012, they outgrew the 2nd largest brokerage firm in the US, Charles Schwab, surpassing 11 million users versus Schwab’s own 10.7 million accounts in 2018. In the past year, Coinbase reportedly brought in over 8 million new users, reaching over a total of 30 million users across the globe.

For IDEX, having integrated access to one of Coinbase’s most popular products may prove to be a massive liquidity injection for us, giving hundreds of thousands of current Coinbase Wallet users the ability to trade on our exchange and driving additional value for IDEX stakers.

For Coinbase, Coinbase Wallet users will have unprecedented levels of trading flexibility with access to 9x more trading pairs from the IDEX platform integration alone. For the current 30+ million Coinbase exchange traders, this integration is a compelling reason to download and access the Coinbase Wallet app.

  1. Download Coinbase Wallet
  2. Visit IDEX, log in, and navigate to the Unlock or Change Wallet page
