Coinbase CEO, Brian Armstrong, wrote in a blog post that the company is working on a unique username NFT that resolves to a wallet.

While no details were provided on the timeline, the Coinbase CEO added that the exchange is also working on technology that will allow users to purchase avatars, define and maintain their public profile, and "establish trust."
"And we are working on features like Sign in with [Eth/Coinbase], which could allow users to sign into every app in the metaverse," Armstrong added.
Coinbase's roadmap comes after Facebook rebranded to Meta. The social network giant plans to spend at least $10 billion by the end of this year alone on Facebook Reality Labs, a metaverse arm focused on creating AR/VR hardware and software.
