Cardano boasts of a thriving and very active developer community that has created numerous hot- and cold-compatible wallets. These include:

Hot wallets

Hot wallets are always connected to the internet, allowing users to easily access and transact their assets. Discover ada- and Cardano native token-compatible hot wallets below:


Daedalus is a full-node hierarchical deterministic (HD) desktop wallet for ada. 

Daedalus comes bundled with a full Cardano node, so it requires a relatively high-specification desktop machine for good performance. The wallet stores the entire history of the Cardano blockchain and validates all blocks and transactions for fully trustless and autonomous operation. Daedalus is ideal for those who want accurate blockchain data, but should not be the go-to wallet for everyday, minor transactions.


Lace is a non-custodial Cardano wallet to explore Web3. With Lace, you can manage digital assets, access non-fungible tokens (NFTs), connect to DApps and DeFi services, and multi-staking. Discover and enjoy a new world of digital experiences.


Yoroi, developed by EMURGO, is a self-custodial, open-source light wallet for ada and Cardano native tokens, running as a browser extension. 

Yoroi allows for instant initial setup, plus quick and easy operation with minimum usage of system resources. It is also available as a mobile application.


Eternl is a Cardano light wallet available as a website/progressive web app (PWA), Chrome browser extension, and mobile app on iOS and Android. Here are some of its key features:

  • Ledger and Trezor hardware wallet support

  • DApp browser to connect to the Cardano ecosystem

  • Smart UTXO management and token fragmentation

Nami Wallet

Nami Wallet is a non-custodial, browser-based wallet extension that interacts with the Cardano blockchain and connects with DApps. It allows users to send and store digital assets, delegate ada, and more.

Nami recently joined the IOG product family and is fully compatible with Lace, but has limited compatibility with other wallets.

  • a built-in swap platform for ada and Cardano native assets,

  • the ability to purchase ada in-wallet with a credit or debit card,

  • and hardware wallet support.

Cardano Shield, a feature of GeroWallet, provides a safety net for users’ online activities, including protection from phishing scams from machine learning modules.

Typhon is fully compatible with existing ada wallets and provides the features Cardano users need to explore the blockchain. Typhon is currently available as a web extension with DApp support and a lightweight web wallet for convenient access.


NuFi is a non-custodial Web3 crypto wallet with multichain support for Cardano, Flow, Ethereum, Milkomeda C1, Polygon, and Solana blockchains. NuFi is compatible with DApps from these chains thanks to Wallet Emulation mode, which lets NuFi link up with popular wallets.
