1. How To Set Up A New Coinbase Wallet #

The Coinbase Wallet is a standalone app that allows users to manage their private keys, store their crypto assets securely, and explore the decentralized web by using a DApp browser.  The Coinbase Wallet helps users to manage their own private keys and store their crypto assets directly on their devices. It should not be confused with the Coinbase app, which is an exchange used for trading cryptocurrencies.

1.1 Install the free app on mobile, iOS or Android

2. Back Up Your Wallet #

2.1   On the home page of wallet, select the ‘Settings’ icon:

2.2   On the Settings page, select  ‘Recovery phrase’:

2.3   Choose between  ‘Back up on Google Drive’ or ‘Back up manually’ (recommended):  

BawiDG2pPiYh1XwxkQMIOyoPxn   or  j3NIUcqAiCt30GJ2nnHrpVHADnXj0UPgK1AfFYlc4 Tl5UaaWCO d6ks5ljddUcktdTYcgVhBMANgPpj hpBJ0iJxr540G6mcU3rG oQ1dS No5uXCO0eJtIVne6bQEa6nkWBn c

Note: Follow the instructions to back up your wallet manually because using Google Drive to backup your wallet makes your crypto wallet vulnerable to being hacked.

NB: Coinbase Wallet generates a 12-word recovery phrase, known as a ‘seed‘, that you and only you have access to. This means that if you lose your recovery phrase, you will lose access to your Coinbase Wallet.

The key difference is, DApps are built on and powered by decentralized protocols such as Ethereum. An example of a popular DApp is CryptoKitties.
