Yoroi uses 15 words for its seed phrase. You did probably used Daedalus to generate it. I recommend you to try to use Daedalus to restore it.

Yes, firmwares updates for this feature has been already submitted to both Trezor and Ledger. Now, it is up to them, when they will release an update of their firmware to their customers. Edit: they are now both available in your favorite wallet :)

Not sure which platform (iOS/Android) you're using or which version of Yoroi wallet. And, I'm a bit confused about the two options. In my Yoroi application (Android, Yoroi v4.0.2, Commit ea5c1120) I see the option to access my wallets (saved) or, at the bottom, ADD WALLET (SHELLY-ERA) ADD WALLET (BYRON-ERA DEPRECATED) So, if you don't see your wallet(s) ...

Your “wallet” is really just a private key that only you know. You can use that key to deterministically generate many addresses, each address with a unique index. But no one can derive those addresses for you without knowing your private key. This is similar to something like SSH, where you have a private/public key pair, but you can have public key 1, ...

I would argue the Yoroi browser extension is much safer than the iOS application. Browser extensions provides double-sandboxing and is considered safer than most of the desktop applications. The browser itself is sandboxed from the rest of your computer and the extensions itself is sandboxes from talking directly to other extensions or to other websites ...

2FA (in the traditional sense) relies on a shared secret. By design, this can only work in a centralized environment like an exchange or an online wallet, not with a wallet that interacts directly with the blockchain. But there are other ways to achieve this, and a multi-sig would be possible and kind of the blockchain equivalent of 2FA. Multi-sig means, for ...

Yes, there is no lock on your funds while they are delegated, therefore you are free to do with your Ada as you please. There is also no timing consideration either. One note with that, any rewards that you have earned will need to be withdrawn to be able to transfer/use them. Yoroi let's you do this with a click of a button.

After a lot of trial and error, I figured it out myself. TLDR The "key" that results from the Yoroi export indeed needs to be encoded with bech32, using the prefix acct_xvk. Demonstration/Proof To test this, we need multiple things: The seed phrase of our test wallet (for this demonstration we store it in the file phrase.prv): maximum vacuum toe ...

Yoroi doesn't need to be involved. You can access your keys using the cardano-wallet suite of tools. You just need your seed phrase. Yoroi and other wallets are just interfaces to the blockchain. The private keys on the chain are the same. Using the command line tools developed my IOG is basically what the wallets are doing behind the scenes.

You can refer to the Yorio FAQ for this: https://yoroi-wallet.com/#/faq/2 To receive Ada go to the Receive tab in your wallet and generate an address. Use a button in the user interface to copy it to the clipboard and then share it with the person who is going to send you Ada.

Yes, and to the same pool. You don't need to do anything.

No, Yoroi doesn't interact with Metamask. However, Yoroi does have this functionality in development-as I understand it. Here is a clip of one its developers speaking on this matter.

Yoroi dev here. Yoroi uses 15 words because we think it's the best trade-off between security and convenience. Using more words may provide marginal security benefits, but you also have downsides like more difficulty if you want to memorise your mnemonics, more risk of writing down the wrong word or in the wrong order during backups, more inconvenience using ...

Each wallet will represent its own amount of ADA and will have its own representation for voting. You won't be able to pool the amounts together and will have to register each wallet to vote independently.

There is indeed missing a part of the address: the delegation part. For more information, please refer to this partially duplicate question and CIP-0019. To derive Yoroi addresses from a seed phrase using the cardano-addresses tool: ./cardano-address key from-recovery-phrase Shelley < phrase.prv > root.xsk cat root.xsk | ./cardano-address key child ...

Yes. The dApp connector code will inject a JavaScript object into the webpage that can be used to interact with the Yoroi wallet. There is already a third party wallet that implements this and can be used on the mainnet. See: https://namiwallet.io

They mainly signify the number of block confirmations that have occurred since the transaction was sent. Block confirmations are metric used to determine the immutability of an entry(in this case, transaction). Why is it important? Trust and assurance in a transaction. Different transactions usually require different levels of assurance. For example paying ...

New ADAs will be added to the pool automatically but they will not be considered for 1 epoch, because snapshot need to be submitted. You can check here how the staking timeline works. Rewards are automatically added to your wallet, you only need to withdraw if you want to spend them

You need to install Yoroi Nightly.

Wallet addresses are public keys mathematically derived from private keys and encoded to a special format. The ability of a wallet to generate multiple addresses is determined by the implementation of a method known as Hierarchy for Deterministic Wallets (HD), originally introduced in BIP-32 for Bitcoin. When using such a wallet, a root private key is ...

It is because Yoroi generates a new address after each transaction for privacy reasons. People who only know this address cannot see how much funds you have and what transaction you did in the past. At the same time your wallet can with its private key derive all address and show to you all the funds you have. Try taking the last address where you received ...

The literal answer to your question is yes, the practical answer is no. Key-derivation is an entirely offline process. CIP-3 talks about how it is currently implemented in cardano (used by all relevant software, including Yoroi, Nami, cardano-cli, etc). A 24-word mnemonic equates to 256 bits of entropy. If generated in a secure fashion, it would take all the ...

If you have a Ledger, you can just connect to it in Yoroi, no need to restore with your seed phrase or create a new wallet. With that said, you never should enter your Ledger phrase anywhere except for a Ledger device that you own. Meaning if your device breaks, buy a new one to restore to. I hope this helps!

DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH!!! Not to sound pretentious or unhelpful, but lets imagine a spectrum of trust: On one end, there is the super paranoid computer nerd who doesn't use any software unless they can read and audit the code themselves. On the other end, there is the naive grandma who downloads/executes anything the screen tells her to. Where the rational ...

Well it really depends on how much UTxO's you have currently in your wallet. If you use one UTxO per transaction then you can send out multiple transactions in parallel. Also you can increase output buy making multiple outputs per transaction, if your case is to send funds as quickly as possible. As far as the real metric goes I don't think it can be easily ...

The root key of a wallet is derived from BIP39 keywords. Then additional keys are derived beyond that. You would need to check each one individually for funds. You can use the cardano-serialization-lib for this. Many lite wallets like yoroi or ccwallet.io use this. More information about BIP39 can be found in my youtube video on the subject. https://youtu.be/...

It is related to PoolMetaData.json as you said, inside the file you can add the link to the extended version of it where you can add different things, for example a description of your hardware, social networks of your pool, and many other things included a pool logo. You can find an example version of it here Once you have edited the file, added the things ...

To receive notifications about the changes of the margin of a pool you can use the ADApools.org application (iOS/Android). You can find the pool that you delegated to and then by turning on the notifications, you can check "margin changed". There are other notifications but not the one of a saturated pool. Maybe they will implement this in the ...

I built a fully offline Raspberry Pi solution on another coin years ago using QR codes, and cameras as readers. Cardano is similar in the fact that you 1. build a transaction, 2. sign a transaction and then 3. broadcast a transaction. Only the signing part needs access to your keys. As an early step just transferring the data from step 1 to the computer, ...

I've done something similar on a Virtual Machine. I have a Linux based operating system for additional security. Doing as you propose is basically the same as using a Ledger/Trezor. The additional risk with your setup is that you have your wallet on a computer that can run additional code that a hardware wallet can not. Every time you connect it to the ...
