Binance Web3 Wallet, launched last November, is a DApps portal where users can manage and move cryptocurrencies between different blockchains, generate revenue, and interact with blockchain platforms.

Users can create a wallet through the Binance mobile application, which will also allow for such operations with DeFi as staking and providing loans.

Notably, the wallet is not only created through the exchange’s app but is also linked to an account to monitor transactions for potential violations of laws, including fraud and sanctions evasion.
