Can I convert my cryptocurrency to another cryptocurrency?

Wallet Decentralized Exchange (DEX) Integration

Coinbase Wallet’s decentralized exchange (DEX) integration is a conversion feature within Coinbase Wallet. With Wallet DEX, you can quickly convert the crypto held in your Coinbase Wallet through decentralized exchanges otherwise known as DEXes.

DEXes are protocols running on the Ethereum blockchain that easily convert over 500 ERC-20 tokens. When you use this feature, you send your funds directly from your self-custodied Wallet to a DEX service like Uniswap or 1inch.exchange without using a centralized exchange like Coinbase.com or Binance. This feature is available to all Coinbase Wallet users. 

Since conversions take place on a third party decentralized exchange, it is possible for the price to fluctuate. Conversions will execute at a price within 2% of the estimate, or the transaction will be cancelled and the balance returned. 

Keep in mind that Wallet DEX only supports ERC-20 assets. 

DEX does not support:

  • Cross-chain transactions

  • Non-ERC-20 transactions (for example, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, XRP etc.)

  • Direct bank account transactions

What are the conversion fees?

Coinbase Wallet currently charges a flat fee of 0.50% on all conversions. Conversion fees help us maintain and improve the Coinbase Wallet experience.
