Details of the Improvements in the New Daedalus
As reported, the new Daedalus addresses a number of common issues such as a fix to the zero-balance issue and delivers Yoroi support and hardware wallet restoration for users.
Users are warned to apply the hardware wallet restoration with absolute caution. It should be handled by experienced hardware wallets users that have an understanding of the security risks.
This new version of Daedalus comes with features that give room for users to simply see a stake pool’s level of saturation.
The improvement to the Daedalus Rewards wallet also impacts its ranking mechanism, with the integration of new desirability parameters. The desirability is concerned with profit margin, costs, performance and rewards per epoch.
The update is also targeted at offering an improved experience when connecting to the network nodes. Howbeit, users may still encounter issues when trying to sync their wallets due to the nature of the testnet.
