What Can Users Do With Lace 1.0
With the Lace 1.0 version, users can send and receive Cardano digital assets such as the ADA crypto, Cardano NFTs, and other Cardano native tokens. Besides, they can also stake their ADA to contribute to the security of the Cardano blockchain network and thus receive rewards for the contribution.
Interestingly, with Lace 1.0, users can also send multiple assets to different addresses by paying just a single transaction fee. This is because the Lace 1.0 light wallet platform comes with the new bundle transaction feature. Additionally, users of the Lace wallet can enjoy added security along with hardware wallet integration. They can also seamlessly connect to DApps, NFT marketplaces, and DeFi services using the DApps connector.
Adding Lace to the Google Chrome browser is pretty simple. Head on to the lace.io official website and click on the ‘Add to Browser’ button.
Cardano’s IOG stated that Lace 1.0 is just the first release and there’s more to come. As the platform evolves, IOG would be releasing regular updates and enhancements in the future. Besides, the Lace team is already working on developing a DApp store, a desktop app and other digital identity solutions.
In its final words, IOG asked users to be aware of any other routes for downloading Lace. It noted: “The Lace light wallet platform is published exclusively by Input Output Global and the browser extension is only available on the Chrome web store. The only official Lace website is www.lace.io. Beware of scams – report any suspicious apps or websites to the Cardano Fraud Detection Bureau”.
