IOTA’s Firefly Wallet Is Secure and Easy-to-Use

According to the report, Firefly is an incredibly secure and easy-to-use application. All features in the wallet are carefully implemented to make the use of cryptocurrencies seamless. It’s also designed with future upgrades in mind.

The advancements of this new architecture include two new open-source Rust libraries. One is for wallet application development, while the other is known as Stronghold for security.

Stronghold is formed to serve as an isolated memory enclave to separate cryptographic operations from the rest of the application. This makes it the first open-source library in the crypto ecosystem.

So, Stronghold as an open-source library will enable Firefly wallet to incorporate additional functionality without having the fear of cryptographic secrets leakage.

Describing the Firefly wallet, the report reads in part as follows:

“This robust application core is wrapped in a lightweight front-end written in the Svelte framework. The application has been thoroughly audited by F-Secure.”

  2. Encrypted backups: Secure storage for private keys and other sensitive information.
  3. Reusable addresses: Simplifying the process of sending and receiving IOTA.

  5. 24-word recovery phrases: A standard in crypto security and usability.
  6. Profiles and accounts: Giving users flexibility in how they manage their funds.
  7. Wallet portability: Users can sign in on different devices with the same Stronghold backup.

Reacting to the new development, Co-Founder and Chairman of the IOTA Foundation, Dominik Schiener said:

“This release marks the beginning of IOTA as a widely-used app ecosystem. Firefly will usher in a new standard of usability and flexibility in the wallet space, where previously there has been a fairly limited set of offerings revolving around a literal understanding of the term wallet. Firefly is a step above other crypto interfaces, not only in terms of its usability but in what it has to offer for experts and newcomers alike.”
