Yoroi’s Balance Check app for Chrome and Firefox is here. These versions will be compatible with mobile wallets, via your Yoroi mobile mnemonic, so no other versions will be necessary.
For Cardano holders who need a refresher, earlier this week we told the community that a necessary part of Phase 3 of Shelley’s testnet was to determine how much ADA is held across ADA addresses within the Cardano ecosystem. This is the purpose of a ‘snapshot.’ Because we need to give ADA holders the opportunity to verify that they actually hold access to their wallet credentials and ensure that the snapshot worked, there needs to be a ‘Balance Check’ or trial run of the snapshot, before the ‘Official snapshot.’ Hence the need for two snapshots. The ‘Balance Check’ happened a few days ago, 12th of November. If you had your ADA in Daedalus or Yoroi wallets, you will be able to verify the snapshot of your funds with Balance Check versions of Daedalus and Yoroi.
As mentioned above, Yoroi Wallet’s Balance Check version app for Chrome and Firefox was released today! EMURGO will utilize the ‘Balance Check’ primarily to note bugs so that participants can stake ADA without issue prior to the Incentivized Testnet.
Happy Balance Checking!
