Signatures not clearly showing the amount being signed

When providing a signature, Coinbase wallet just shows the raw message.

This is particularly misleading for users because it looks like a much larger amount is being signed than is actually the case (e.g. 20000000 instead of 20).

A simple fix is to ask the user to sign the properly formatted amount (for which knowledge of decimals is required - which can be pulled from the token type). Perhaps there is then a small button for the user to see the raw message if they wish.

Hello @ronan! Welcome to Coinbase Cloud Developers’ forum! We appreciate you for providing this feedback and for the suggested fix. And so, we encourage you to post this in the Feedback Section of the Developer Forum as this is a good feedback and improvements to Coinbase come directly from feedback like yours, so it’s very valuable to us.
