This is fantastic news. Thanks Maki.


? for the AMA: What are the critical path items remaining to the Shelley Mainnet release and what are the outstanding risks.

What is the big picture for Daedalus, the long time goal ? ( dApp platform, multi-currency, in-app buying of adas… ) ?

With which strategy would you like to save / protect Cardano, or the course of ADA in the future, from the constant access of whales or / and speculators who in constant greed for profit can also destroy the success of the course and possibly the Cardano project ?

regards, Stephan Kambach

Is a “light version” of Daedalus planned ? ( A version that won’t have to download the whole blockchain but a subset of it while being still secure )

Is there a time estimate for HW wallet support in Daedalus?

The official roadmap is not updated very frequently. Lats update is from July. Could we get more frequent updates about what is going on with Cardano in one place?

What is the current status of the Shelley testnet? When will we get to the network phase? Is the Shelley mainnet until the end of 2019 still on the table?

Yes, multi-currency would be great, Daedalus for iPad also, currency-exchange, more then one sort of Wallet…Multi-language…

Currency-Exchange companys offer Multi-currency, multi-Wallets and It is to suspect that they will also offer staking-Pools for ADAs next.
They make the same as Daedalus and more…

“What is the current status of the Shelley testnet” Demos of the network stack is already available in IOHK’s youtube chanel.
