Here is all you need to know about Cardano light wallet Yoroi 1.8 update

Published

on

Yoroi is a chrome based extension that works as a Cardano (ADA) wallet and is developed by EMURGO considering the security loopholes in web-based wallets.

Cardano (ADA) is a prime mention when it comes to cryptocurrency. Web-based wallets and extension based wallets handle ADA. Yoroi is a Cardano wallet, which was named after the ancient Japanese samurai armor which was made of leather and iron.

Yoroi is chrome based extension later developed by EMURGO considering the security loopholes in web-based wallets. EMURGO is a third generation blockchain, who developed Yoroi in partnership with IOHK.

Web-based wallets are not so secured, considering their norms to run a local copy of Javascript code to create the password and private key. Also, web-based wallets are prone to DNS hijacking, where people will be fooled to redirect toa dubbed site which is a clone of the original and chances of losing Cardano are vast. And in another scenario, people at times download a virus assuming

it is Daedalus. But with chrome extension, it is entirely different and with better security.

Yoroi in Chrome provides rapid development, with entirely built APIs and it’s also very secure considering the fact it runs inside a sandbox. Also, with Chrome’s inspection options, this becomes simple. The mere difference between Yoroi and Daedalus is that the first one is a light wallet, meaning it doesn’t download the entire blockchain, but instead it connects to other trusted servers that contain the full blockchain copy.

Now with Yoroi being a very prime option when it comes to Cardano, EMURGO has recently released an update for this light wallet- Yoroi 1.8.

Yoroi 1.8 has been released for Firefox and Chrome (Auto Update).

The update comes with the following new features,

  • Function for adding Cardano (ADA) payment URL
  • Balance hidden option
  • A new warning message if the device has failed to connect to the server
  • Support for the Indonesian Language

If you are using Daedalus and yet to download this light wallet, do it now and it will auto-update to Yoroi 1.8.

credibility and attention start to flow, this MMA story is a nightmare for Cardano.”

YouTuber ChicoCrypto and the founder of Cardano may be in the ring soon for an MMA match. The planned fight will be to raise money for St. Judes Children’s Hospital.

In an unexpected turn, we may soon see the first MMA match between two figures in the cryptocurrency world. Jason Appleton (@jasonappleton) has set up a fighting match between YouTuber ChicoCrypto and Cardano (ADA) Founder, Charles Hoskinson. The boxing match will be done with the intention of sharing all the profits with St. Judes Children’s Hospital. What started off as a joke may actually end up becoming reality.

Hoskinson responded to Appleton’s request with a definitive ‘yes.’ “Let’s raise a million for the kids,” he writes. He seemed ready and eager to go through with the plan.

ChicoCrypto has also affirmed his intention to go through with the fight. He confirmed his intention of taking on Hoskinson during his own live stream. The fight is supposed to be in August 2020, which gives both fighters around 9 months to prepare.

The planned fight between the Cardano founder and ChicoCrypto has inspired others to

amusingly imagine other leaders in the cryptocurrency world going head-to-head. As Altcoin Jack (@JackofAltcoins) writes, there are quite a few fights that many in the cryptocurrency world would probably pay to see.

Some, however, were not amused and even annoyed that this story was clogging up “real news” on Cardano (ADA). One user writes that he doesn’t look forward to hearing about this for the next 9 months and hopes “this whole thing dies.”

The idea probably came from the recent boxing match between KSI and Logan Paul which amassed significant media buzz. Although nowhere on the same level, the fight between ChicoCrypto and the Cardano founder would undeniably bring significant buzz to the industry, albeit for the wrong reasons some would say. Recently, ChicoCrypto drew attention to himself by claiming that Bakkt was Wall Street’s attack on Bitcoin.

For now, the fight is on—and if the two do end up raising “millions for the kids,” then it’d be a net positive for everyone. The naysayers may be proven wrong after all if it’s all for a good cause.
