Cardano announces new release for Yoroi Wallet

Cardano announces new release for Yoroi Wallet

Cardano announced the launch of the Yoroi Shelley extension 2.4.0 for both Chrome and Firefox users. The release comes with several new features, including the ability to undelegate their ADA from a stake pool and a faster wallet resync process.

Yoroi Wallet gets a new update and a slew of new features

Yoroi, the first lightweight wallet for Cardano, has announced the launch of its version 2.4.0. According to the official announcement, the new version has been released to both Chrome and Firefox users and, apart from regularly scheduled updates, will bring about four new features.

The feature most users will benefit from is the addition of undelegating. The company explained that the wallet now supports undelegating their ADA from a pool, which could be useful for people wanting to switch and start their own pool.

“The delegation page will be improved in next week’s update to make this feature more intuitive”

When it comes to choosing a new pool, Yoroi wanted to make the process as democratic as possible. The default sorting order in the wallet’s newest version will be set to “random.” Each user will get a different random order, the company said, adding that this was done to encourage users to discover new stake pools.

Easier debugging and problem solving in version 2.4.0

The other two features introduced in Yoroi’s latest release both focus on improving user experience and enabling faster debugging.

Users will now be able to see if their wallet upgrade transaction appears on an explorer. The expected transaction ID for wallet upgrade transactions will make debugging user issues much easier.

Apart from that, any other problems that might arise during the testnet can be solved with a simple resync. Yoroi introduced the option to resync the wallet from a button inside the settings dialog page. Before the update, users would have to re-install Yoroi and re-type their recovery phrases each time they ran into a problem with the testnet.
