For those unfamiliar, Toshi started as a discovery platform for dapps, a side project (from my outside perspective) for the company. Clearly they're taking it more seriously with this rebrand and relaunch as Coinbase Wallet. This is great news for the ecosystem as today's onboarding and usability of dapps is very poor. The most popular dapps are used by hundreds of people/day (see DappRadar). That's super low. One of the ways Coinbase is solving for some of these challenges is focusing on identity, which is the core of the Facebook's moat and all the products they build. This further explains why David Marcus (exec at Facebook) had to step down from the Coinbase board.

@rrhoover it's good that they allowed the wallet to stay user custodial. I don't know how much of a moat this will be though as dapps could be accessed by other wallets. Unlike Facebook's walled garden. They still have the hurdle of building their userbase. As more compelling dapps get built, it could put pressure on Facebook. Having experience in this space, the new users to cryptocurrency have a hard time understanding self custodial. Lots of support.
I thought this was by Uber when I saw the logo at first...

I’ve been using Toshi (including Toshi Dev) and great to see the progress. dApp browsing went from being a side part of chat bots to first class support. With the addition of Pete (he built Cipher) the team keep doing great things.

For adoption of crypto use (not just hold) then we need big improvements to UX and Coinbase Wallet are doing that. It is one of the easiest places to point new users at to start dApp browsing.

The new branding looks great. As an iOS user blue is better than green.

Sad to say say goodbye to the Toshi name

The Coinbase name will hopefully bring the firehose of users to help accelerate the mobile dApp space.

Pros:

Great product that is always improving. Team are responsive. Now in blue!! Testnet access for development. I recommend to new users.

Cons:

No automagical adding of all tokens and collectibles yet.

A name changed the perception so much! When it was toshi, I couldn't understand it's purpose. Felt it like a transfer app with chat. Now it all makes sense. Keep rocking Coinbase 🙌
