Coinbase Wallet, Coinbase's mobile cryptocurrency wallet, may soon remove its DApp browsing feature according to a message appearing in the app. According to Coinbase, it is removing the DApp browser functionality "in order to comply with App Store policy."

Users can still access DApps through Coinbase Wallet on their desktop devices using its WalletLink feature. In a Reddit post, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong suggests that "Apple seems to be eliminating usage of Dapps from the App Store."

The Block has reached out to Coinbase to get confirmation on what specific Apple App Store policies Coinbase Wallet may have violated with its DApp Wallet support and will update this post if we receive a response. Early this week, MetaMask, another DApp browser service, announced that Google has suspended its Android client and rejected an appeal from MetaMask.
