Daedalus is a highly engineered wallet with advanced security features, protecting your assets with the strongest cryptography yet developed. Daedalus runs the Cardano protocol and it participates directly in the network. As a hierarchical deterministic wallet (HD), you can manage any number of wallets. Daedalus allows you to have more control over how your funds (ADA) are organized.

Future releases of Daedalus will allow third party developers to build innovative applications directly for the wallet. Whether you would like micro credit, to set up recurring payments, or to exchange cryptocurrencies, it will be easy to customize your Daedalus experience. It is important to note that Daedalus is a full-node wallet, which means that it downloads, stores and validates the full copy of the blockchain so it can operate in a trustless manner and does not rely on centrally hosted servers.

Operating Systems: Mac 64 Bit, Windows 64 Bit, Linux 64 Bit

Yoroi is a light wallet for Cardano. It's simple, fast and secure. Yoroi is an Emurgo product, engineered by IOHK. It follows best practices for software in the industry including a comprehensive security audit. Yoroi looks to be a day to day wallet for a Cardano user. Another more technical explanation would be that: Yoroi is light, hierarchical deterministic (HD) wallet for ADA running as a Chrome extension.

It is important to note that Yoroi does not download the full copy of the blockchain. It connects to trusted servers which have the full copy of the blockchain. Yoroi has a cold-storage option as it's compatible with Trezor. See videos below for help & tutorials getting setup.

In addition, AdaLite offers the option to use Trezor model T for hardware storage.

It is key to note that AdaLite was not created by Cardano Foundation, Emurgo, or IOHK. This project was created by Vacuum Labs, whom are mentioned quite often by Charles Hoskinson and IOHK.
