Yoroi Light Wallet for Cardano ADA - EMURGO's 1.6.0 release launch on Chrome!

Together Agency


EMURGO, official Cardano partner and commercial arm, is excited to announce the new release of Yoroi Wallet version 1.6.0 on Chrome. Yoroi, a light Cardano ADA wallet developed by EMURGO, derives its name from the incredibly ornate ancient armor worn by Japanese samurais. The armor was a combination of iron and leather exquisitely constructed for over a year. The name implies that Yoroi Wallet is strong and armor-like; tailored to safeguard one’s assets. Yoroi Wallet is a light wallet because it doesn’t need to download or synchronize the entire blockchain; once it is opened, it can send or verify the reception of transactions immediately. Thus, it is the ideal light wallet for Cardano; simple, fast and secure to use, creating an enhanced user experience.

Since EMURGO first launched our Yoroi Wallet in 2018, reviews from users have been overwhelmingly positive, with an overall 5-star rating in the Chrome Store, iOS store, and Google Play Android store! In addition, the product is proving quite popular on social media as the lion’s share of comments are exceedingly positive!
