Starting today, Wallet users can sign-up for and purchase cryptocurrencies from right within their Wallet apps.

  • As of today, most of the assets supported on are available to purchase within Wallet.
  • The new feature is available on Android devices in the US. We will soon expand services to iOS and more countries.
  • Wallet supports debit card purchases of crypto from, with more payment methods coming soon.
You can now sign up for a account and make a purchase directly inside Wallet

Wallet allows users in every part of the world to store their own crypto and use popular dapps like Compound and Uniswap. However, until now, anyone new to crypto had to buy their first cryptocurrency from an exchange, and then transfer it over manually to their Wallet apps. This created a lengthy and complicated onboarding experience for new Wallet users who are excited to get started with the open financial system. With today’s launch, whether you want to start using a dapp, send crypto to friends, or just store your own crypto, getting started with Wallet is much easier.

Existing customers can also link to their Wallet accounts, and the feature is completely optional. All Wallet features will remain available to users even without linked accounts.

Now, with the addition of a simple and secure fiat onramp service, developers can build dapps with just one easy app install for their users.
