Coinbase, a US-listed  cryptocurrency exchange  , announced on Thursday that it has added support for Solana on an initial phase. That said, users can now handle their Solana (SOL), and Solana tokens (SPL) alongside their tokens held on all of Wallet extension’s supported networks.

“Today’s update makes it easier to keep track of all your crypto across an ever-growing range of supported networks, without the need to manage multiple wallet apps. However, this launch is just the beginning — Coinbase Wallet plans to further integrate with the Solana ecosystem, including the ability for users to connect to Solana dapps, and the ability to view and manage their Solana NFTs directly within their Coinbase Wallet extension,” Coinbase noted in a statement published via its website.

Coinbase Wallet’s extension has support for other networks like Ethereum, Avalanche, Polygon, BNB Chain, among others. With the new support of Solana, the US-listed firm aims to unlock more of Web3 ‘without needing to manage multiple wallets.’

It has been reported that over the past year, the  blockchain  Solana has been growing the fastest, with a total locked value of over $7.35B and over 1,400 projects launched covering DeFi, NFTs and Web3.

Until now, those interested in exploring the Solana ecosystem or holding SOL and SPL tokens had to create yet another crypto wallet, manage an additional app or browser extension, and keep track of their assets across multiple platforms. From now on, users of the Coinbase Wallet extension can store, send and receive SOL and all of its SPL tokens.

“We want to empower millions of people to seamlessly participate in the exciting world of dapps and the larger crypto ecosystem. With its low fees and fast transaction times, Solana makes the world of crypto accessible to even more people and is a great introduction to web3,” Adam Zadikoff, the Senior Product Manager at Coinbase, pointed out.
