How to get Base token on Coinbase wallet?


Coinbase Wallet is a popular digital wallet for cryptocurrency users, offering a secure and user-friendly interface. However, it doesn’t support all networks by default. In this article, we’ll provide a detailed walkthrough on how to add the Base network to your Coinbase Wallet, enabling you to store, send, and receive Base tokens seamlessly.


Before you begin, ensure you have:
A Coinbase Wallet account (download and install the app if you haven’t already)
A Base token wallet address (optional, but recommended for receiving Base tokens)

Adding Base Network to Coinbase Wallet

Step 1: Access Coinbase Wallet Settings

Open the Coinbase Wallet app and navigate to the settings section. This is usually represented by a gear or three horizontal lines icon (⋯). Tap on this icon to access the settings menu.

Step 2: Enable Custom Networks

Scroll down to the “Advanced” or “Developer” section and toggle the “Custom Networks” switch to the “On” position. This will allow you to add non-default networks like Base.

Step 3: Add Base Network Details

Click on “Add Network” and enter the following details:

  • Network Name: Base
  • RPC URL: [insert Base network RPC URL]
  • Chain ID: [insert Base network Chain ID]
  • Symbol: [insert Base token symbol]

These details can usually be found on the official Base website or documentation.

Step 4: Save and Enable Base Network

Save your changes and toggle the “Base” network switch to the “On” position. This will enable the Base network on your Coinbase Wallet.

Step 5: Verify Base Network Addition

Return to your Coinbase Wallet dashboard and verify that the Base network is now listed. You should see the Base token symbol and balance (if you have any).


By following these steps, you’ve successfully added the Base network to your Coinbase Wallet. You can now store, send, and receive Base tokens directly within the app. Remember to always keep your wallet secure and up-to-date to ensure the safety of your assets. Happy trading!
