On Sunday (22 January 2023), blockchain startup dcSpark announced an important update to its lightweight and user-friendly wallet for Cardano.

In case you are wondering what dcSpark does, according to its development team, the main goals are to:

  • “Extend Blockchain Protocol Layers”
  • “Implement First-Class Ecosystem Tooling”
  • “Develop and Release User-Facing Apps”

The firm was co-founded in April 2021 by Nicolas Arqueros, Sebastien Guillemot, and Robert Kornacki. 

dcSpark is best-known in the Cardano community for its sidechain project Milkomeda. On March 28, the Milkomeda Foundation announced the launch of Milkomeda C1, which “enables Ethereum dApps to be deployed in the Cardano ecosystem.” 

dcSpark’s light wallet for Cardano is called “Flint Wallet“, and below its features are listed:

Flint Wallet first became widely available — on 27 January 2022 — as a browser extension on the Chrome Web Store:

Since it came from the same firm that is working on the Milkomeda project, Flint Wallet had native support for the Milkomeda C1 sidechain (which had its mainnet launch on 28 March 2022) right from the beginning:

The mobile version of Flint Wallet is available for both iOS and Android. Version 1.0 of the iOS app was released on 5 May 2022. Version 2.0.0 was released on 20 January 2023 for Android and on 21 January 2022 for iOS:

Here are the new features in this version:

  • Milkomeda v1 support
  • ability to toggle asset list and portfolio based on selected coin type
  • ability to display send/received token amount in transaction history
  • pull to refresh feature available now on balance and transaction pages
