Selected Coinbase users will access Ethereum dApps and NFTs via the Coinbase app The cryptocurrency exchange platform has also temporarily moved away from plans to triple the staff following a loss of 420 million dollars in the first quarter Cryptocurrency exchange and trading platform Coinbase has announced the introduction of the Web3 functionality. A small number of users will be able to access the products of the Ethereum ecosystem, including decentralized applications such as SushiSwap and non-fungible tokens on markets such as OpenSea and the newly launched Coinbase NFT. According to the official announcement released on Monday, the introduction of Web3 will allow users to explore a new set of opportunities directly from the Coinbase app with the new dApp wallet and browser. The functionalities are managed by the multi-party computing technology (MPC), a cryptographic protection protocol that facilitates dedicated on-chain wallets. In particular, the dApp wallet it would be co-custodial, which means that the private key is stored by both Coinbase and the user, so there are some elements of self-custody. Coinbase’s director of product management, Rishi Dean, explained that this approach has been taken to ensure that there is a recovery option in the event of access loss. “This means that if you lose access to your device, your dApp wallet key is still safe and Coinbase can help you recover through our live support” , claimed. However, even with plans to allow the consumer to enjoy decentralization with activities such as exchange and lending, only a select few will initially benefit, as the service is currently limited to a few Android users residing in the US. Launch is set for next Monday. Coinbase puts a stop to ambitious hiring plans Recent market conditions have proved disastrous for crypto entities across sectors , including exchanges.

Choi linked the decision to current market conditions and the need to focus on priority business objectives. With the plan change, he said the company now intends to make sure recent hires are well established in order to ensure success.
