Cardano: An open-source blockchain
Cardano is a decentralized, proof-of-stake blockchain that is secured and governed by the 3 million+ global ADA community, and provides an environmentally-sustainable platform for Web3 decentralized applications (dApps) development.
As an open-source and transparent blockchain, Cardano’s development is a mutual exchange of ideas, proposals, and communication between the Cardano community and the technical development teams, ultimately promoting close collaboration and giving the Cardano community a voice in Cardano’s development.
EMURGO - a founding entity of the Cardano blockchain - works in tandem with Cardano ecosystem partners Cardano Foundation and IOG to help foster Cardano’s development in line with the community’s input.
In this blog, we will discuss one type of this collaboration and how it helped Yoroi Wallet increase compatibility with Cardano Web3 dApps as a result.
What is a Cardano Improvement Proposal (CIP)?
A Cardano Improvement Proposal (CIP) is a proposed solution to assist in the evolution of the Cardano ecosystem. It is intended to help improve Cardano’s technical development in a transparent manner.
The CIP program was launched in 2019 by the Cardano Foundation to offer a collaborative way for the Cardano community to give feedback, propose solutions, and take on an active, engaging role in improving Cardano’s overall development.
Each listed CIP does not constitute that the proposal has been accepted and is being actively worked on, but rather is a compilation of CIPs either reviewed or under review.
What is CIP-30?
One CIP that has been accepted is CIP 30 - Cardano dApp-Wallet Web Bridge.
CIP-30 proposes a webpage-based communication bridge allowing webpage dApps to interact with Cardano wallets.
This is a much-needed solution that promotes the development of Cardano Web3 dApps and a more efficient onboarding of dApp users by bridging Cardano dApps with new and existing Cardano wallet users.
Since Cardano dApps will be able to more easily interact with Cardano wallet types, this will help promote the Cardano Web3 ecosystem, including Cardano-based NFT and DeFi dApps, by providing a smoother user experience.
What will CIP-30 do for Yoroi Wallet?
The most recent Yoroi Wallet Google Chrome Desktop Extension Version 4.13, has full compatibility with CIP 30.
The CIP 30 specification and implementation with Yoroi Wallet is now listed in the Cardano Foundation GitHub repository found here.
The new 4.13 version release of Yoroi Wallet Google Chrome Desktop Extension includes the Yoroi dApp Connector which is also CIP-30 compatible. The Yoroi dApp Connector connects to Cardano NFT marketplace Fibo, a one-stop shop that will use Yoroi Google Chrome Desktop Extension to mint, buy, and sell Cardano NFTs.
Yoroi Wallet has implemented CIP-30 to increase compatibility with Cardano Web3 dApps and provide more options for Yoroi Wallet users to connect to Cardano dApp builders and vice versa. For dApps that have already integrated with other Cardano wallets, Yoroi’s CIP-30 compatibility now makes it easier to integrate with Yoroi.
