There was a talk at the Cardano summit mentioning the new Cardano light wallet in the works by IOHK and Charles Hoskinson very briefly made a reference to the same project in his latest Dapps whiteboard talk (from 46 min 34 s).

Do you know if the source code will be open-sourced? If the source code is already accessible and where? Github doesn't seem to have a repo for it.

I would really love to understand if this wallet could be the MetaMask equivalent in the Cardano ecosystem.

As far as I know, the wallet or its source code is not yet release.

If you are looking for a metamask equivalent, you might want to check Nami wallet.

  • Thanks for your answer. Nami wallet is interesting but isn't available on mobile and doesn't include a built-in browser unfortunately.

  • What is a build-in browser? Also, I'm not sure if there are plans for mobile version of One. Commented Jan 8, 2022 at 9:26

I don't think IOG has announced if it will be or not. It is still in development/testing so maybe that is why. I would guess it will be open sourced based on Emurgo open sourcing their Yoroi wallet: web and mobile.

IOG did say they want this new wallet to be interoperable with other chains so I think if they are taking on MetaMask (also open source) they would do the same.

This new light wallet could certainly be the MetaMask equivalent. I think of it similar to the official Algorand Wallet. Although there is a point to be made around the success and innovation of these 3rd party wallets in our space.


I think you might be talking about 'Mithril'.
