Frontier Wallet announces integration of Coinbase Pay to simplify buying crypto

We are excited to announce that Frontier's increasing global user base can now enjoy the quick and seamless experience of funding their wallets with the integration of Coinbase Pay. This feature is now live across Android and iOS versions of the Frontier Wallet app.

What is a fiat on/off-ramp solution?

With heightened interest by new users seeking to participate in the crypto ecosystem, the first hurdle they often face is figuring out how to use their existing fiat funds to buy crypto. This is where trusted and secure fiat on/off-ramp solutions step in. A fiat on-ramp solution helps users buy crypto using their preferred currency facilitated by supported payment methods. These methods can range from credit & debit cards, bank transfers, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and more. By 'off-ramping,' users can convert existing crypto into fiat facilitated by traditional payment rails.

Hence, it goes without saying that fiat on-ramp support is key to ensuring that new and existing crypto users can comfortably transact with their wallets, interact with preferred DeFi dApps, buy or sell NFTs, and extract maximal value without many difficulties.

Buy Crypto: Now fast, secure, and seamless

Coinbase was founded in 2012 and has emerged to become one of the world's largest cryptocurrency exchanges. Alongside Coinbase Exchange, it also offers Coinbase NFT and Coinbase Wallet. Coinbase Pay is a new feature that allows verified users to buy crypto using a variety of payment methods. Popular amongst Coinbase users for its easy and hassle-free interface, Frontier Wallet users can now enjoy the Coinbase Pay experience.

If you are a verified Coinbase user, you can easily buy crypto into your Frontier Wallet using your existing Coinbase account. You can even use any crypto you already have in your existing Coinbase account to trade and transact with other wallets and dApps. Being a current Coinbase user also eliminates the need to repeat your KYC, allowing you to buy crypto using payment methods you already have saved in your account.

Since Coinbase Pay offers support for over 100+ countries and many popular payment methods, it is also an excellent option for new users. Once registered and verified with Coinbase, users can securely save their preferred payment methods into their Coinbase accounts to start buying crypto anytime.
