Supported Wallets on dYdX Chain

As part of the default settings, the v4 open source software (”dYdX Chain”) UI currently supports these wallets:

  • MetaMask: The most popular wallet on the dYdX Chain. MetaMask is a browser extension wallet available for Chrome, Brave, Firefox, and more.

  • WalletConnect: dYdX Chain supports any wallet that uses WalletConnect, which allows traders to connect many different mobile wallets. To connect a WalletConnect wallet, select "WalletConnect" when prompted to select your wallet type. This will display a QR code, which traders can scan using their WalletConnect-enabled wallet.

  • Coinbase Wallet: The mobile application Coinbase Wallet also works with dYdX Chain. It can be accessed through the Coinbase Wallet app itself or by using WalletLink, which allows traders to use the desktop version of the site while signing transactions using their phone. This is done by scanning a QR code on the site using the Coinbase Wallet app. The Coinbase Wallet browser extension is also compatible.

  • Privy Login: Privy enables easy onboarding to the dYdX Chain. With Privy, you can set up a new wallet and log in using your existing email or social accounts. Learn more here.

  • Other Wallets: Other wallets may "just work" with dYdX Chain. However, they are not officially supported by v4 software yet. Traders can use the “Other” option to connect with other wallets. They would show up as "Web3 Wallet" once successfully connected.

Using Keplr Wallet with dYdX Chain

dYdX Chain also offers Keplr wallet support. Keplr offers a simple way to facilitate transfers, staking of assets, voting on governance, and more.

The Cosmos-based Keplr wallet enables dYdX Chain users to easily transfer assets, stake, participate in governance voting, and more. Here's how to use Keplr with dYdX:

  1. Upon connecting your Ethereum wallet to dYdX Chain, you are assigned a unique dYdX Chain address. Export the secret phrase for this address.

  2. Import the secret phrase into Keplr Wallet.

  3. Use Keplr to participate in dYdX governance and staking. See the governance and staking guide for full details.

Note: If a trader is utilizing the v4 open source software, Keplr support is currently unavailable for trading.


What are the differences between the MetaMask wallet and the Keplr wallet?

Keplr Wallet is known for its strong integration with the Cosmos ecosystem and enables users to interact seamlessly with Cosmos-based projects. On the other hand, MetaMask is more widely used and supports Ethereum-compatible networks, making it a go-to choice for users primarily operating within the Ethereum ecosystem.

What can you do with a Keplr Wallet?

  • Participate in dYdX governance. Check out the governance and staking guide here.

  • Participate in dYdX staking. Check out the governance and staking guide here.

  • Explore the Cosmos ecosystem with Keplr

Does the above also apply to other Cosmos-native wallets?

Yes, other Cosmos-native wallets such as Leap may also support connecting to the dYdX Chain for governance and staking.
