Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong says the rise of on-chain activities on its new layer-2 network

Base has exposed how “broken” the Coinbase app is for user experience, and has pledged to improve it. 

In an X (Twitter) post on Aug. 13, Armstrong said a number of pain points have surfaced — a multi-week festival of product launches, brand activations,

and non-fungible token reveals on Base that began on Aug. 9 and runs until Aug. 31.

Armstrong said the event had shown the weakness of the Coinbase app’s user experience for non-fungible tokens, decentralized apps and layer 2s.

The CEO urged users of X to send feedback in response to the thread,

in a bid to prioritize the most important queries, adding that the next two weeks will see rapid updates on the biggest pain points.
