How to use WalletConnect

WalletConnect is a convenient open source tool that enables a mobile wallet to easily connect to decentralized applications, and interact with them from your phone. It is a more secure way to use Dapps than desktop or browser-based wallets such as Metamask.

Being integrated in Bridge Wallet, WalletConnect gives you a one-tap access to the vast majority of DeFi platforms and web Dapps. See WalletConnect's website for a list of supported apps.
