Cardano Updates

Daedalus 3.0.0 released

A new Daedalus version is out and if you are a Ledger or Nano user then you will be very happy with this release. From the notes:

The Daedalus 3.0.0 release brings Ledger Nano S, Ledger Nano X, and Trezor Model T hardware wallet support to Daedalus. You can now use your supported hardware wallet devices to transact with ada and delegate your wallets with Daedalus. 

Combining the hardware wallet support with the full-node properties makes Daedalus the most secure Cardano wallet on the market. Hardware wallets provide cold storage for your private keys. Being full-node, Daedalus provides completely trustless operation, along with maximum security and privacy, since Daedalus independently validates every transaction in the Cardano blockchain history. It does not rely on any third-party servers or services. Daedalus connects directly to the decentralized Cardano network making it always available, even while third-party servers may be down for maintenance.  

Daedalus 3.0.0 also includes further stake pool ranking improvements. It now includes the intended amount of stake, which is selected by the stake slider, in the ranking calculation. Another notable change in this release is the pool ranking adjustment that will benefit small pools that are yet to make many blocks. 

Daedalus 3.0.0 has also been updated to be fully compatible with the forthcoming Cardano protocol update (for token locking).

More details in the release notes, if you have Daedalus installed it will allow you to automatically upgrade.
