Unsurprisingly, the Cardano community has welcomed the news, with several users indicating interest in switching to the wallet. “I’m switching to literally any wallet that gets a dApp connector AND Bluetooth Ledger support going first!” A user wrote in the comments.

It is worth noting that Flint wallet launched the same features for iOS users last week. Notably, the announcement received support from Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson. The Flint updates now mean that two of the largest mobile ecosystems offer users access to Cardano dApps from their Flint wallet app, a significant milestone.
Notably, the Cardano ecosystem has a growing dApp ecosystem with a budding community. Moreover, its dApp ecosystem is set to explode soon as the long-anticipated Vasil hard fork is just around the corner.
The upgrade promises to bring significant scalability and smart contract improvements. New features to come with the hard fork include pipelining and changes to Cardano’s smart contract programming language Plutus. Notably, over 1000 dApps in development are waiting to launch after the upgrade to take advantage of these new features.
Despite users expecting the Vasil hard fork at the end of July, developers opted to push back the launch for weeks. However, Hoskinson has assured users that he expects no further delays, saying the hard fork is in the final stages of testing.
Cardano is trading at the $0.5102 price point, down 4.52% in the last 24 hours but up 1.02% over the previous seven days.
