Coinbase announced the launch of Coinbase Wallet called Toshi, which the company's specialists have been working on for the past year and a half.

According to the company's representatives, Coinbase Wallet should be viewed not simply as a tool for accessing cryptocurrencies, but as a starting point for decentralized Internet.

We believe that the applications of the future will be built on a decentralized internet (the blockchain). Everyone will own a crypto wallet that allows them to access decentralized applications (dapps) and that wallet will be their gateway to the open financial system.


Tooshi development started back in April 2017 under the Ethereum messager Token name. Last months the product development was headed by Peter Kim, the founder of the startup Cipher Browser, which was acquired by Coinbase in April this year.

Toshi features:

  • ERC 20 tokens and Ethereum support
  • Airdrop and ICO tokens support
  • Purchasing and storing crypto collectibles
  • Exchange trade

Coinbase Wallet also allows users to send payments anywhere in the world, giving them access to leading decentralized exchanges and decentralized third-party applications.

At the Vanity Fair summit in Los Angeles, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong said that since launching in 2012, the company has earned about $ 2 billion in user transaction fees. Also, according to him, Coinbase has been profitable since 2017, according to Vanity Fair.

Most of these profits were plowing back into the business to create new products. I sort of think of us as the anti-unicorn unicorn...I want Coinbase to be a company of repeatable innovation.

The head of the American company added that cryptocurrencies are creating a new economy that will occupy a significant share in the GDP of various countries. The digital asset market itself will stabilize and grow as speculation diminishes.
