Cardano’s check community (ADA) Shelley Haskell is lastly getting its personal Daedalus pockets
Parent of Cardano (ADA) – IOHK has announced that it will release a version of Daedalus for the Shelley testnet. The lightweight Cardano wallet version 1.0.0-STN1 was developed exclusively for testing stake pool operators and is the first of many Daedalus versions that is compatible with the Shelly (Haskell) test network.
Stake pool operators can now test the Haskell version of the Daedalus wallet
Less than two weeks after the Shelley test network was opened to all stake pool operators, IOHK has released new functions for operators to test. According to the company’s announcement, the first Daedalus version for the Shelley test network has just been released. This marks the beginning of a long series of iterations that will be released to the test network and eventually become the wallet that all ADA holders will use on the main network.
We have just released our first version of Daedalus for the Shelley testnet. This first version is only available to stake pool operators for early functional testing (via GitHub download). Here is the overview https://t.co/tFeOZTw9hP pic.twitter.com/jPcZiaRkvA

The newly released version of the wallet, Daedalus 1.0.0-STN1, only offers basic features for stake pool operators to test. This version also has no impact on those currently holding ADA. IOHK says you don’t have to do anything for the time being.
Delegating and handling Shelley via Daedalus
With the Haskell-optimized Daedalus, users can create, delete and restore Shelley wallets and carry out network transactions. The Shelley wallet is funded through the Shelley Testnet tap.
Upon accessing Daedalus, IOHK found that it is only available through the company’s GitHub repository and is not open to the general ADA owner. However, future versions of Daedalus will be available via the usual web download.
The company encouraged all interested stake pool operators to download the latest version of Daedalus and try it out. This, so it said in a blog post, will enable the company to receive valuable contributions early on for the development of the following versions of Daedalus.
These versions will be released during the Shelley rollout and offer new features such as viewing stake pools, delegating stakes, and reviewing earned rewards. Support for older Byron wallets will also eventually be rolled out so that users can transfer their money from old Byron wallets to the new Shelley wallets.
