How to Contribute to Cardano’s Yoroi Wallet

A look at how to contribute to Cardano’s popular light wallet

As the first light wallet supporting Cardano ADA, Yoroi has been a community-driven initiative – encouraging transparency and decentralized collaboration.  Over the years, many of our updates and infrastructure enhancements were possible thanks to the diligence and feedback of the Cardano community.  Whether you’re a newcomer to the community or a Cardano veteran, there are several ways to contribute to our wallet.  This piece explores the numerous opportunities available to contribute to the development of Yoroi Wallet through feedback, testing, and collaborative initiatives.

The significance of community collaboration

The significance of community collaboration cannot be overstated, especially when we consider the Cardano ecosystem. Cardano is more than just a digital currency; it’s a collective belief and commitment of individuals who believe that blockchain can improve the lives of others. EMURGO Fintech’s core mission has always been to transform digital payments through blockchain. Yoroi Wallet, as part of this mission, serves as a gateway to Cardano’s Web3 ecosystem.  It’s an open-source, self-custodial solution that empowers users with full control over their Cardano ADA, allowing them to stake and transact securely and flexibly. With this in mind, let’s now dive in on the ways to participate.


To ensure the integrity and reliability of Yoroi, we are seeking diligent and detail-oriented testers. The role is to thoroughly evaluate new features of our wallet, identify issues, and report them to us. You do not need to possess an extensive technical background; rather, an inquisitive mindset and commitment to meticulous testing will do. In fact, it’s important that we acquire feedback from all the various levels of experience – so don’t be shy! The feedback will drive our continuous improvement efforts, further enhancing the user experience. If you are interested in testing, fill out this survey, and we will be in touch soon with more details.

Language translations (NEW)

If you possess multilingual capabilities, we seek your invaluable assistance in the translation of our crypto light wallet into diverse languages. The global nature of the crypto ecosystem underscores the significance of language translations. By contributing your skills in languages such as Spanish, Japanese, or any other language, you’ll contribute to the widening inclusivity of the crypto landscape. To find out more, provide your details through this form, and we will be in touch with additional details.

Community voice

The opinions and perspectives of our user community are of utmost importance to the Yoroi team. We conduct community surveys to gather insights, recommendations, and criticisms. Your active participation in these surveys will shape the trajectory of our project. In doing so, you transform from a mere user to a contributing force in the crypto community. To be a part of this initiative, make sure to follow us on X, and join our Discord.  We often share surveys and ask for community feedback through both of these channels and always welcome fresh ideas and constructive feedback as they arise.

Open-source contributions

For those skilled in blockchain development, the opportunity to enhance Yoroi’s front end is available. Open-source contributions capture the spirit of our project. Whether you are an experienced developer or a beginner, there are numerous avenues for you to add, rectify, or enhance. In the process, you can deepen your understanding of the crypto landscape and sharpen your programming skills.
