The Lace Wallet is a user-friendly, lightweight wallet solution designed for the Cardano blockchain. It was created by Input Output Global (IOG), one of the founding entities behind Cardano. The wallet aims to provide a seamless and intuitive experience for users to manage their digital assets, engage with decentralized applications (DApps), and participate in the Cardano ecosystem.

Lace caters to both novice and experienced users by offering a comprehensive set of features. Users can securely send and receive ADA, Cardano’s native cryptocurrency, as well as other tokens built on the Cardano platform. The wallet also offers a simple interface for staking ADA, allowing users to earn rewards for supporting the network’s security and decentralization.

A standout feature of Lace is the DApp Connector, which enables users to effortlessly connect their Lace wallet to various Cardano-based DApps. This integration grants users access to a diverse array of decentralized services, including decentralized exchanges (DEXs), decentralized finance (DeFi) platforms, and non-fungible token (NFT) marketplaces, all directly from within the Lace wallet interface.

Additionally, Lace incorporates an integrated NFT viewer, simplifying the process of managing and viewing Cardano-based NFT collections. The wallet also supports integration with hardware wallets, providing an additional layer of security for users’ digital assets.

To ensure accessibility for a broad user base, Lace is available as a browser extension for both Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. The platform has undergone independent audits and manual verification by external auditors, ensuring the integrity and security of the codebase.

Earlier today, IOG released Lace Wallet 1.9. This latest update introduces two highly anticipated features: multi-account and multi-wallet support. These new additions are a direct result of the valuable feedback and suggestions provided by the Lace community.

Multi-Account Feature The multi-account feature in Lace 1.9 allows users to generate multiple addresses or accounts within a single wallet using a single recovery phrase. This setup empowers users to efficiently manage their assets by separating transactions or stake delegations without the need to handle multiple seeds.

Multi-Wallet Feature Lace 1.9 also introduces the first phase of the multi-wallet setup. This feature was developed in response to the Lace community’s preference for using a combination of hot and cold wallets to enhance security and protect their assets. With the multi-wallet feature, users can create and manage multiple wallets within Lace, each with its own set of keys and recovery phrases.
