CoinGames is proud to announce that it is now accepting Coinbase Wallet and Trust Wallet to connect on its platform and deposit to start playing! CoinGames, before this weekend, was allowing its users to connect to the decentralized platform only via MetaMask, and we hope that this broadening of options will facilitate the usage of our platform for users that want to play, as mentioned in this article. 

And, if you are new to crypto or have not yet used Coinbase or Trust wallet, here is a detailed explanation of how you can install the wallet on your device and set it up before transferring or buying crypto and connecting to our platform in a matter of seconds to play on our amazing platform. 

Coinbase Wallet 

  • New Coinbase User: Installing the Coinbase wallet is an easy feat for iOS, Android and Chrome users, as the mobile app is readily available for download on every store. After downloading the app, users can immediately create a new wallet, starting by setting up a username, choosing your privacy preferences and inserting a passcode and recovery phrase. Most Ethereum-based wallets have a 12-word recovery phrase, which acts as the key to your wallet, meaning you can use the phrase to enable asset transfers from one wallet to another.  
  • What is great about the Coinbase wallet is that the user has the option to import another wallet like MetaMask or Trust Wallet, and it is an easy process, since all you need to complete the import is your 12-word phrase (you can access your recovery phrase in the “Settings” section of the Coinbase wallet mobile app). Once the backup is confirmed and you’ve chosen and entered your phrase, the set-up of your wallet is complete and you can start buying crypto or transferring it from another wallet, if you wish to do so (Check below for more details). Once you have funds in your wallet, you must simply connect it to CoinGames – a process that takes seconds – and start playing! 
  • Existing Coinbase Account: If you already have a Coinbase account, this is how you can link your account to your wallet and buy and sell crypto (if you don’t have an account, you can create one directly from the Coinbase Wallet app by signing in and completing the verification steps- email, payment method and identity.) Once the account is connected to the wallet, you can click on “Buy” and choose the currency you’d like to purchase, as well as the amount. You’ll then be taken to a preview page that will recap your preferred payment method for the chosen crypto. If everything is correct, click “confirm”, and the crypto should show up on your wallet once the payment has gone through.  

Trust Wallet 

  • How to Install and Use TrustWallet: The Trust Wallet app is available only on iOS and Android devices and is relatively simple to set up and use. Being a popular wallet among traders and investors, Trust wallet has been downloaded over 30 million times to date. Once the app is downloaded, the user can easily create a new wallet. The user will be asked to insert a recovery phrase (it is important to make sure to write down the phrase manually on a sheet of paper or on your phone, as the user may not be able to recover it if it is forgotten, and he/she will more than likely lose access to their wallet and the funds within). Just like in the case of Coinbase, the user’s recovery phrase will consist of 12 words. The wallet will be successfully created once the recovery phrase has been inserted in sequential order, and the user is then free to connect to CoinGames. 
  • How to Create or Import a Wallet and Swap: Once you have downloaded the app, you can tap on “Create Wallet”, write down and save your backup phrase and then verify it again on the next step (Important: make sure you safely store your phrase somewhere). And your wallet is now created. To import a wallet, tap on “I Already have a Wallet” in the home page, then tap on the token wallet type you require, or the “Multi-Coin Wallet” option, and paste your secret recovery phrase. Once you’ve completed these steps, tap on “Import”, and your outside wallet will instantly appear! With TrustWallet, you can swap currencies without ever leaving the app: tap on the “Swap” option and choose how much you want to pay and which currency you want to swap and receive. It’s that easy!
