How EMURGO is Expanding Cardano Community Outreach for Yoroi Wallet Users

Albert Kim


EMURGO has been alongside every step of Cardano’s journey since its inception. Having celebrated Cardano’s 5th-anniversary last month, we have learned a great deal about ways to engage with the community about product updates, user feedback, and more.

In this blog, we wanted to share with you how we have been improving our community engagement with our Yoroi Wallet users.

Appointing a new Fintech community lead to be a point of contact

It is important to monitor our social media threads, posts, and comments, and interact accordingly. 

To do so, EMURGO recently named Tyler Wales as its new Fintech Community Lead for its Cardano Web3 products & services including Yoroi Wallet.

As EMURGO Fintech Community Lead, Tyler addresses user concerns, provides general support to the Yoroi Wallet community, and enhances the visibility of development work being undertaken on EMURGO Fintech’s products and services, as part of the goal of driving EMURGO Fintech’s community engagement efforts. Those with questions, ideas, and other feedback about Yoroi can directly reach out to Tyler.

Hosting Yoroi Twitter Spaces

The blockchain industry is global and decentralized which means online communication channels in real-time are very important. 

Among crypto users, Twitter Spaces have gained a lot of prominences and are often a place where the Cardano community gathers to discuss the state of the ecosystem in a live group voice chat-like environment.

In Yoroi Wallet’s first-ever Twitter Space hosted on the Yoroi Twitter account, the live discussion ranged from the latest UI/UX improvements to new features for its Google Chrome desktop version. 

Attending events to meet the community

The physical world is still of enormous importance and big blockchain conferences and Cardano meetups are a great way for EMURGO and Yoroi Wallet to directly meet users. 

This year, EMURGO and Yoroi have been at and will be at some of the largest crypto conferences. Below are three of the biggest.

Consensus 2022

Consensus is perhaps the most important blockchain industry event each year. At the conference, major projects in the industry gather to network, announce news developments, and discuss current narratives shaping the conversation around crypto.

Held in June 2022 in Austin, Texas, Yoroi Wallet, along with the EMURGO team, had a major presence this year at the Cardano booth.

EMURGO Fintech General Manager Vineeth Bhuvanagiri spoke to the assembled Cardano community about Yoroi’s revamp, improved user experience, and future rollout plans.

TOKEN2049 is Asia’s biggest annual blockchain and crypto event. Held in Singapore in September 2022, EMURGO hosted a Cardano booth alongside Cardano Foundation.

Team representatives took the opportunity to raise awareness and downloads of Yoroi Wallet, as well as of the greater Cardano ecosystem.

The conference and the special Cardano community pool party also marked the significant fifth anniversary of Cardano’s mainnet launch in September 2017.
