Cardano has made his long-awaited Daedalus 1.0.0 mainnet wallet is released. In addition, IOHK seen to be transparent by 11 of the vulnerabilities of their blockchain to the public.
What are the IOHK, and Cardano?
The Input, Output, Hong Kong (IOHK) is a research and development company, they are committed to open financial services to blockchains. The company is in 2015, was founded by Charles Hoskinson, and Jeremy Wood. IOHK is building cryptocurrency and blockchains in the case of academic institutions, government agencies, and companies in the Cardano-blockchain.
Cardano’s new mainnet wallet, Daedalus 1.0.0, last week’s official launch, according to IOHK. The wallet has been around since september 2017, in development). The biggest changes have been in better sync with the blockchain and make it more secure.
The full blockchain
Daedalus, a wallet is a full node. This means that you have a complete copy of the Cardano-blockchain in the new wallet to be downloaded. Will Daedalus, each and every transaction in the history of independent control. According to the developers, this provides the highest possible level of security, since there are a lots more in there.
The wallet also allows for the syncing of the blockchain in the background. Charles Hoskinson says, also, that it is now sync for about an hour, and that was an improvement compared to the previous benchmark of 9 to 14 hours.
Another new addition is what the developers is unlimited, and the accounting name. Daedalus is a so-called hierarchical deterministic wallet. Users can have multiple public keys are generated from a single seed, so you have multiple wallets at the same time, you can manage it.
Daedalus 1.0.0 brings new features, as well as the background blockchain synchronization, a wallet-import feature, but mandatory spending passwords, For your support, transaction filtering, a new update mechanism, and a redesigned, faster wallet as a 3 or 4

A public audit of the blockchain
With the release of the Daedalus, on the roll-out of the Town, is a reboot of Cardano’s blockchain. IOHK allowed a third party to the Cardano blockchain, the screening, and they found the eleven potential vulnerabilities. After all the exploits were fixed, took IOHK, be sure to publish them in the name of transparency.
Cardano is being developed to the exacting standards of assurance and security. Today, we’re publishing to GitHub, the positive results from our recent independent code audit, carried out by security experts, R9B.

Hoskinson as to why transparency is important:
It is of the utmost importance that the blockchain industry is its own vision of an open, decentralised systems that delivers when it comes to the construction of the blockchains. Companies are not allowed to give priority to the confidentiality and speed to market over security, because of the enormous sums of money, and even lives, will be dependent on the software that we build. In the industry, its development will be open to inspection by a third party, and knowledge about vulnerabilities and sharing for the benefit of the wider industry and to the confidence and trust of the users.
