While Coinbase is best known for its cryptoasset exchange, the company has broader ambitions than simply facilitating the purchase and sale of cryptocurrency. The company’s declared purpose echoes the ultimate ambition of cryptoasset enthusiasts: to create a new, “open financial system.”

Coinbase provides hosted wallets in addition to its exchange and brokerage services. These allow consumers to keep cryptoassets safely on Coinbase, which manages the assets. A hosted wallet is the most popular and simple-to-use cryptocurrency wallet. When you purchase cryptocurrency through an app like Coinbase, your funds are automatically sent to a hosted wallet. It’s termed hosted because your crypto is kept for you by a third party, same to way a bank stores your money in a checking or savings account.
