Plaid Introduces Wallet Onboard Tool for Crypto
From supporting their favorite artists to unlocking online worlds, consumers use crypto in creative ways every day.
Yet it remains challenging for consumers to connect their crypto wallets across the entire web3. Likewise, the ever-changing crypto ecosystem makes it increasingly difficult for developers to provide simple, secure tools to onboard and connect to all crypto wallets consumers use.
Plaid was founded to solve account linking challenges for digital economy. Over the past decade, Plaid Link has become the most familiar, trusted and trusted way for consumers to connect their financial accounts across thousands of leading fintech apps and services.
Today, we bring this technology and experience to web3 through Wallet Onboard, a safe and easy way for developers to onboard their consumers through a seamless wallet connection experience. Wallet Onboard allows developers to enable connection to more than 300 self-custodial crypto wallets through a single integration.

A familiar, trusted user experience that is highly personalized
Wallet Onboard is built on top of Plaid Link, a familiar and trusted user interface used by nearly one in four Americans today. Consumers connecting their crypto wallets to web3 apps for the first time will experience a dynamic drop-down list that includes recently used and available wallets, making the process personalized and extremely easy and fast. On top of that, no wallet address or hashed wallet address information is collected.
A dynamic end-to-end onboarding solution for web3 developers
Not only is Wallet Onboard a safe and secure consumer experience, it was built with a developer-first approach. We know from experience that it is a complex technical challenge to integrate with multiple wallets and manage them continuously. Our goal is to help developers focus on building new web3 product experiences for consumers by abstracting the technical work required to onboard and manage wallet connections.
A single integration for 300+ wallets
Instead of manually integrating many wallets at a time, developers can simply manage a simple SDK integration and unlock connectivity to hundreds of self-managed wallets such as MetaMask, Coinbase Wallet, Trust Wallet and Ledger.
One drop-in integration and onboarding UX across all wallet platforms
Consumers use wallets across browser plugins, mobile apps, in-wallet browsers, hardware wallets, MPC wallets and more. It is extremely cumbersome and time consuming to manage these various wallet requirements, from UX, to which Ethereum network/chain they are on. We’ve streamlined this for developers so that end users see a single drop-in integration that’s optimized for deployment in over 300+ self-deposit wallets across multiple platforms.
Automated wallet updates and optimizations
Wallet Onboard is continuously updated as new wallet integrations are added. Instead of keeping up to date and managing multiple libraries to integrate new wallets into the onboarding experience, Wallet Onboard does this for developers automatically.
