What is Coinbase Wallet?

Coinbase Wallet works with all EVM-compatible L1/L2 networks and supports these features:

  • Unified asset balances across all networks
  • The ability to connect your dApps to Coinbase Wallet on both mobile web (for iOS and Android) and desktop.
  • Chrome Extension, iOS, Android + multiple ways to manage keys and sign transactions when interacting with applications
  • Built-in faucets for funding your wallet with testnet assets

Coinbase allows providers a plethora of developer tools like the Coinbase Wallet SDK with mobile version.

Creating an HTTP/WSS RPC URL on QuickNode

You can create a free account on within a few clicks to have a custom RPC endpoint. QuickNode supports over 25 chains and counting!

Once logged in, click the Create an endpoint button, then select chain and network based on your preference.

After creating your endpoint, copy the HTTP Provider link and keep it handy, as you'll need it next.

Setting Up Coinbase Wallet with QuickNode RPC URL

Download the Coinbase Wallet browser extension if you have not already. Create a new wallet or import your existing wallet if you have one. Make sure to keep your seed phrase safe.

Step 1: To add a network to your Coinbase Wallet that does not already exist, open the Coinbase Wallet extension and click the Settings tab in the bottom-right corner.

Step 5: Enter the custom network's relevant details in the fields by following the information below:

  • Network Name: {Chain Name} QuickNode
  • Chain ID: Ethereum Mainnet - 1; Sepolia - 11155111; Holesky - 17000; Polygon Mainnet - 137; Base - 8453; Arbitrum One - 42161
  • Currency: ETH (for most Ethereum-based chains; tip to check the block explorer of whichever network you are on and see what the transaction gas is paid in to find the native currency).
  • Explorer URL: (will change based on the chain your own)

Coinbase Settings Networks

If you receive an error related to the same network already being added to your Networks list upon saving, update the existing network with your QuickNode RPC URL.

If you want to add another network to your Networks list, you can follow the same process. Check chainlist for a list of currency and chain ID values.
