Ethos, a blockchain application ecosystem, today launched support for the native asset of third-generation blockchain platform Cardano (ADA) on its cryptocurrency wallet applications.
Over the past several months, the Ethos team polled and surveyed its community on what token they most wanted to see next in the Universal Wallet – and Cardano won with “resounding support.”
Cardano is a decentralized public blockchain and cryptocurrency project and is fully open source. Cardano is developing a smart contract platform which seeks to deliver more advanced features than any protocol previously developed.
It is the first blockchain to evolve out of a scientific philosophy and a research-first driven approach. The development team consists of a large global collective of expert engineers and researchers.
Other New Additions in Universal Wallet Update 1.9
1) Lock Screen Enhancements
With update v1.9, Ethos has implemented feedback from users around the lock screen. Now, users will find that when they open their “open-apps” navigation on their device, the Universal Wallet screen will blur to provide enhanced privacy to users.
Additionally, prior to update 1.9, when a user took this action and returned to the wallet, they were prompted to unlock. With this update, the user is able to return from viewing their open apps directly to their wallet with it staying unlocked and accessible.
2) New ERC20 Tokens
Ethos has also welcomed 3 new ERC20 tokens (PAN, PAR, and ECOM) into the Universal Wallet.
- Pantos (PAN) – Pantos aims to bring influential blockchain projects closer together, improve communication between developers, researchers, and users, and set innovative standards for decentralized cross-chain token transfers.
- Parachute (PAR) – A platform to send cryptocurrency to anyone, instantly, the creator of ParJar, a tip bot on Telegram.
- Omnitude (ECOM) – Omnitude is a hybrid blockchain business.
All tokens listed are currently live and fully-transactable!
3) Quick Link to Wallet Settings
Ethos developers have also made customizing the SmartWallet easier. A settings icon has been added to the upper left corner of the SmartWallet, giving users a simple and intuitive way of accessing wallet settings.
In settings, users can now more easily rename a wallet, hide individual coins in a wallet or hide the wallet altogether. Users can also manage security settings with more ease, now with the ability to unlock a wallet with a password or pin, or a pin and biometric for an added layer of security.
