Ankr, one of the world’s leading Web3 infrastructure providers, announced that it has officially added Coinbase Wallet support for liquid staking. The company revealed in its press release that all Coinbase Wallet users can now liquid stake on the Ankr Staking platform for an easy way to earn yield on the assets they hold in their Web3 wallet.
The Ankr team added that the Coinbase Wallet integration was one of the most highly requested features for Ankr Staking. By using Coinbase Pay, users can seamlessly connect their Coinbase exchange account to the Coinbase Wallet, and then to Ankr.
Josh Neuroth, Ankr’s Head of Product, commented that;
“Having the ability to connect a Coinbase Wallet was one of the most hotly requested features for Ankr Staking, and that’s a testament to how many people find the wallet useful for interacting with Web3 and DeFi every day. We always want to ensure our stakers are pleased while opening our earning solutions to as many new participants as possible.”
To start using this service, users need to connect Ankr Staking to the Coinbase Wallet browser extension when prompted. On smartphones, users can do so from the Coinbase Wallet app’s dApp browser.
Ankr added that users could easily keep track of their staked assets from the dashboard tab of Ankr Staking or in the DeFi tab of Coinbase Wallet.
Coinbase Wallet comes with a built-in dApp browser on its mobile app, making it easier for users to access top dApps and DeFi protocols. The wallet also allows users to send, receive, and bridge assets right on the interface, making it useful when choosing different networks to hold assets on, such as Polygon or Ethereum.
On its part, Ankr currently supports the staking of nine tokens on its platform. While Ankr (ANKR) and Gnosis (mGNO) tokens can be put towards delegated staking, the platform supports Ethereum (ETH), Polygon (MATIC), Binance Coin (BNB), Fantom (FTM), and Avalanche (AVAX) for liquid staking.
The team added that its staking platform automatically sends the newly granted liquid staking tokens to the user’s Coinbase Wallet. The tokens deliver staking rewards as their balance increases daily.
Coinbase Wallet has become popular among DeFi and Web3 enthusiasts as it offers users more flexibility and features than other wallets. The wallet supports Ethereum, all EVM-compatible chains, Solana, and more than 5,000 tokens for a truly multi-chain experience.
Ankr is building the future of decentralized Web3 infrastructure, servicing over 50 proof-of-stake chains with an industry-leading global node delivery system and RPC aggregator.
