IOHK, one of the most active developers in the Cardano community, announced a new Beta version for the Daedalus wallet. The new Flight release is for testing features, and the final version will be launched soon.
The essential part of the latest version is adding support for hardware wallets. IOHK says in the final version, Ledger Nano and Trezor wallets can connect to Daedalus wallet.
Supporting More Wallets for ADA Holders
Daedalus is one of the most popular wallets for Cardano community members. IOHK always releases a beta version of this wallet for testing, named Daedalus Flight. The new flight version is now live, and ADA holders can test the new features.
IOHK announced the new release in a tweet:
“Daedalus Flight is our pre-release test wallet program for mainnet, recommended for experienced users only. 3.0.0-FC2 expands support for hardware wallets, with the addition of the @Ledger Nano S and Ledger Nano X devices.”
According to the tweet from IOHK, Daedalus Flight is not suggested for regular users. More experienced ADA holders are recommended to download and test it. They will report any possible bugs and problems so the team can solve them for the final version.
IOHK emphasizes the possible bugs of the Flight version on its official website. The most important fact about the Flight version is that this wallet is connected to the Cardano mainnet. Any transaction in this beta version will take effect and be considered a real ADA transaction.
The Flight version of the Daedalus wallet always comes some days before the final version. IOHK recommends normal users to wait for the final version. According to their recent announcement:
“It is currently available for macOS and Windows users; Linux support will follow in a subsequent release. Once finalized & tested on Daedalus Flight, Ledger and
@Trezor support will be included in a future Daedalus Mainnet 3.0.0 release, currently targeting early December.”
As mentioned before, the most important new feature in the latest update is the support for hardware wallers. IOHK wants to help users send and receive ADA using their Ledger or Trezor wallets – maybe other hardware wallets will be added soon. In the end, the team focuses on this feature again, saying that after the final release:
“From that point on, every #Daedalus user will be able to send, receive, and delegate their #ada stake using the most popular hardware wallets on the market.”
