  • Daedalus doesn’t have mobile version

Cardano developers have released the latest version of its Daedalus wallet. The Daedalus 4.11.0 was released on Thursday, July 9, according to a blog post from IOHK.

Among the features of the new wallet is a support for the hardware wallet, Ledger Nano S Plus and the Trezor top range firmware, 2.5.1.

According to the release, users will see improved messaging for the transactions such as when funds are insufficient. The new version supports native Apple Silicon chip, which is a precursor to future improvements such as chipset support.

More Improvements of The Daedalus

Other improvements have to do with the correction of known flaws with Trezor which according to the update is:

“first-time delegating using Trezor firmware 2.4.3, and pairing with Trezor Model T if a wrong passphrase is inserted while verifying an address.”

Introducing The Cardano Light Wallet

The release also introduced the new Cardano light wallet, Lace 1.0. It enables the user to view and manage their assets, as well as store and send non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The wallet also supports connectivity to the NFT marketplace and the staking of funds. Users can also access decentralized applications (dApps) from its easy-to-use interface.

The Lace 1.0 will soon be launches and users can register to keep abreast of the launch date and other details of the light wallet from Cardano.

Existing users of the Daedalus will receive prompts for update from the Daedalus newsfeed. A post by IOHK says:

“If you are new to #Daedalus remember – download it ONLY from the official site: https://daedaluswallet.io/en/download/ & check full release notes here: https://iohk.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/7330921186201”

Daedalus is a full node wallet from Cardano, so it stores a full copy of the blockchain. It is important that users update and synchronize it regularly for it to perform optimally.

Alert On Fake Mobile Versions

Daedalus is based on desktop computers. The Cardano teams alerts users never to download or use mobile versions since such are not from Cardano, but scam wallets targeting user funds.

The Twitter update says:

“Important: Daedalus is for desktop ONLY. If you see a ‘mobile Daedalus’ – and these do appear on Android from time to time – it is a scam to steal your seed phrase and your $ada! “
