Cardano (ADA) founder, Charles Hoskinson, decided to unveil some of the altcoin’s secret project earlier before the intended date. While unveiling the secret project, he mentioned Icarus, and today what he added to it was Yoroi, which Cardano foundation said has been updated on Cardano’s roadmap.
Many have been wondering what Icarus is. Cardano’s blog referred Icarus as a chrome extension and “a reference implementation for a lightweight wallet developed by the IOHK”.
The idea will give developers the advantage to invent their own secure light and mobile wallets for Cardano.
“Icarus is a fully open source code base that will be the first step in a range of open source initiatives to provide developers with a suite of tools for Cardano.”
Icarus, according to the update, was born out of a series of proof of concepts which began back in March, this year.
“A small section of the IOHK engineering team were interested to find out if they could demonstrate that it would be possible to create a lightweight Cardano wallet with all the features of Daedalus but that was easy to use and fast to set up.”
Unsung Yoroi: What is It?
Yoroi is a light-client wallet launched by Emurgo earlier today. Emurgo is an organisation that supports new Cardano ventures. The organization declared it was interested in releasing the first implementation of Icarus to the community. Emurgo is working on launching their implementation of Icarus, the Yoroi wallet.
However, the idea is still in the oven, but soon, Emurgo will unveil their version of Icarus, since they have already presented their technical report on how to go about it.
In Japanese, Yoroi means “great armour”, it could be linked to the kind of “secure armament that Samurais would wear to protect themselves”.
