Through CoinbasePay users will be able to buy NFTs and also use the Defi platforms easily. This is not limited to buying assets but also having full ability to do funding to Coinbase crypto accounts easily.
According to Coinbase Exchange, this new service as a CoinbasePay is fully decentralized which means self custodial wallet like service. And it is highly secure and faster to use in the crypto payment options. But surely it will require the extension in the chrome browser to use for the same thing.
“All you need to do is select ‘Add crypto with Coinbase Pay’ when you want to add crypto to your Coinbase Wallet extension.”
Blog post confirmed that first-time users will be required to first connect their Coinbase wallet to the self custody wallet, after that they will be able to access CoinbasePay.
