EMURGO Develops & Releases New Open Source Product: Tangata Manu

Together Agency


EMURGO, the official commercial arm of Cardano, has developed and released Tangata Manu – a new fully open source codebase library for third party developers & enterprises to create their own secure light wallets and explorers for Cardano ADA on Internet browsers and mobile devices. Originally inspired by IOHK’s initial development of Icarus, Tangata Manu is an open source library also compatible with Shelley – the next era of Cardano’s development that will bring full decentralization along with delegation & staking pools.

Following the successful product development and release of EMURGO’s Yoroi Wallet & Seiza Cardano Blockchain Explorer, Tangata Manu is the third EMURGO product within the past year to be released to the public and aligns with EMURGO’s mission to drive the global adoption of Cardano and bring value to ADA holders. The final development of Tangata Manu was completed with additional funding from the Cardano Foundation.

Tangata Manu is an open source and essential developer toolbox to import Cardano blockchain data into an easily usable, customized database storage for products such as Cardano ADA light wallets and blockchain explorers. The main goal is to provide for simple, open access for third party developers & enterprises to basically read blockchain data from any source with an API, and export it into any connected, custom storage or database.

“EMURGO is very excited to deliver yet another in-house developed product for the Cardano community. Tangata Manu is a stable solution that has been upgraded over time, and is ready for the public to use and build upon. EMURGO has worked really hard to consistently add functional utility to the Cardano ecosystem by releasing open products that enhance the use cases for Cardano’s ADA and Cardano’s third-generation blockchain solutions moving forward,” said Nicolás Arqueros, CTO of EMURGO.

Along with Yoroi Wallet & Seiza Cardano Blockchain Explorer, Tangata Manu represents strategic initiatives towards building stronger ADA utility and liquidity. Developers and enterprises utilizing Tangata Manu to create simple Cardano ADA light wallets and explorers for Internet browsers and mobile devices will ultimately provide ADA holders with a more optimized user experience when transacting with ADA as it will also make it potentially easier for retail merchants to implement these wallets into their sales channels.
