Connect to dapps using WalletConnect
WalletConnect is a protocol that allows secure and trustless communication between decentralized applications (dapps) and Web3 wallets. This allows you to use the features in the selected dapp with your Kraken Wallet.
To avoid scams and phishing attempts, always verify the URL of the dapp you are connecting to and ensure it's the official website.
Never share your 12-24 word Secret Recovery Phrase with anyone, including dapps. WalletConnect does not require this information for connections.
