EMURGO, official Cardano partner and commercial arm, is excited to announce the latest new release of Yoroi Wallet version 1.8.0, on both Chrome and Firefox. EMURGO is constantly working on updating Yoroi Wallet with improved features and releasing new versions once ready for the Cardano ADA community, as it is built to be your “financial gateway to the future.”

Yoroi, a light Cardano ADA wallet developed by EMURGO, derives its name from the incredibly ornate ancient armor worn by Japanese samurais. Yoroi Wallet is strong and armor-like; tailored to safeguard one’s assets. Yoroi Wallet is a light wallet because it doesn’t need to download or synchronize the entire Cardano blockchain. Once it is opened, it can send or verify the reception of transactions immediately. Thus, it is the ideal light wallet for Cardano ADA; simple, fast and secure to use, creating an enhanced user experience.

Since EMURGO first launched the Yoroi Wallet in 2018, user reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, with an overall 5-star rating in the Google Play Android store, iOS store, Chrome Store, and Firefox Add-ons! The product is increasing in popularity on social media, as the lion’s share of comments are exceedingly positive! Also, check out our article of Yoroi Wallet: Roadmap Milestones Achieved for 2018.
