Synchronization no longer takes forever
A Reddit user had expressed concern about Daedalus’ sync time in January 2020. According to the user, a reinstall and sync took almost 13.5 hours. Because the initial sync was taking so long, the Daedalus Reddit community had started questioning its advantages over Yoroi. Yoroi is a lightweight hierarchically deterministic ADA wallet.
When Charles Hoskinson responded to IOHK’s CEO, an ADA owner tweeted that the latest version was the fastest. According to Twitter handle @ Gilian1989, the fastest sync times he’s had testified was 80 minutes. However, with the latest performance upgrade, the sync time has been reduced to 30 minutes.
Why Daedalus when Yoroi works so well?
Daedalus offers several advantages over Yoroi. First, it allows ADA owners to maintain several Wallets and it maintains a direct connection to the Cardano network.
SecondlyUnlike Yoroi, Daedalus doesn’t need a trusted remote server to function. As a Daedalus user, you run the software locally This is able to validate the transactions and also protects your privacy.
According to Charles, this upgrade was badly needed. Aside from sync time, the other major upgrades tested by ADA users are:
- Restoration of Yoroi Shelley purses
It is evident that the improvements are spread across all aspects of a blockchain wallet’s performance. These upgrades also improve the user experience. The updated version of the Dedalus Flight is available for MAC, Linux and Windows users. The official website recommends running Daedalus on a system with 64-bit dual-core processors. however, shared by many users that the wallet works quickly even on pre-BTC laptops.
Real-time stakeout data from Yoroi Wallet
Unlike Daedalus, Yoroi is a Lite HD wallet for ADA. It also offers instant initial setup, quick and easy operation, and runs on cell phones too. Yoroi runs as a browser extension and connects to a full Cardano node through Emurgo, one of Cardano’s founding companies.
On August 20, Emurgo entered into a partnership with ADApools.org. According to the official blog, Emurgos Yoroi Wallet is now receiving ADA stake pool data from ADApools.org. With real-time access to the stake pool data, both Yoroi and ADA users can make informed stakeout decisions.
