On April 21st the IOTA Foundation released the all-new Firefly Wallet for the upcoming Chrysalis (IOTA 1.5) network.
The Firefly Wallet will replace the old Trinity Wallet and comes with some interesting features. From the beginning the wallet will support the reusable addresses and also the new Stronghold feature. Stronghold will secure sensitive actions like address generation and transaction signing in an isolated application memory. The wallet is written in Rust and is built in a modular design, which makes it flexible for further developments in future.

Chrysalis Main-Net release
After the release of Firefly, the IOTA Foundation released on April 28th, 2021, the new Chrysalis network. With the new Chrysalis network, the foundation is doing the first step towards the fully decentralized IOTA 2.0 (Coordicide). “Based on Chrysalis developed features will need just small changes for Coordicide”, stated the foundation. So, the Chrysalis network for example already comes with the UTXO model and a new Ed25519 standards-based signature scheme, which makes the integration into already existing solutions much easier.
