Yoroi Wallet is an open-source Cardano light wallet from EMURGO, a founding entity of Cardano.
Yoroi held its first Twitter Space last week to provide transparency to users and answer some commonly asked questions.
Yoroi offers both mobile and desktop browser versions for users to store, send, and receive their ADA and ERG cryptocurrencies in addition to staking for passive rewards, and an opportunity to participate in Cardano’s governance through Project Catalyst.
For those who missed Yoroi’s Twitter Space, here’s everything you need to know about Yoroi Wallet’s first twitter spaces update and why it’s important.
Newly Expanded Team for Yoroi
EMURGO’s newly appointed Chief Technical Officer Javier Franco and Head of Product Sergio Ferreros spoke on Yoroi’s behalf.
Some of the most important features of Yoroi were highlighted:
- Yoroi is an open-source light wallet for the Cardano community, created & maintained by EMURGO, which makes it efficient to download and use.
- Yoroi is open-source so the community can verify Yoroi’s code to see if it is doing what it is intended to. This provides transparency and assurance that your crypto assets are stored in a secure place. Additionally, the community can also contribute new features to Yoroi.
- Yoroi is a non-custodial wallet, meaning that you have full custody of your crypto assets. No third party, including EMURGO nor the Yoroi team, have access to your Yoroi Wallet.
