With the Daedalus 5.0 Mainnet release, many issues have been resolved: older Daedalus executables that didn’t get deleted after auto-update is now fixed, and errors are no longer generated when selecting a syncing wallet during Delegation Wizard or while redeeming ITN rewards.
The launch of Daedalus 5.0 has also patched the issues with sending the altered number of tokens to be sent during fee calculation. Earlier, the system used the previous set amount even after changing the number during fee calculation.
In addition, the issue has been fixed regarding tokens that had non-zero recommended decimals and did not display the yellow “decimal place” alert triangle. The Daedalus 5.0 release also replaces the darwin-launcher.go process image with Cardano-launcher.
Furthermore, IOHK warned users with the following statement:
Daedalus is a full-node wallet for desktops ONLY. If you see a ‘mobile Daedalus,’ it will be a scam trying to steal your seed phrase and your ADA!
Daedalus is a secure wallet for ADA, the native cryptocurrency of the Cardano blockchain. Daedalus can download a full copy of the Cardano blockchain and independently validate every transaction. This process increases maximum security without interference from centrally hosted third-party servers.
In related news, ADA is seeing a slight improvement in performance. At the time of writing, ADA is priced at $0.48, with a surge of 3.32% in 24 hours and a hike of 7.33% in seven days.
