Elastos Essentials Version 2.6.0 Released on Android and iOS

The Essentials team has officially released Elastos Essentials version 2.6.0 for Android and iOS. With a trio of major new features, performance enhancements, new built-in networks, and much more, the new version represents a landmark release for the flagship Super-Wallet application and home base of the Elastos ecosystem.

Three Major New Features

Taking user demands and rising market trends into consideration, the Essentials team added a trio of high-impact features to vastly improve user experience for both long-timers and newcomers to Essentials.

1) Ledger Nano X: Cryptocurrency’s leading hardware wallet is now supported.

2) Multi-Signature Wallet: Essentials leverages a brand new Elastos Wallet Javascript SDK to support multi-sig wallet functions on the Elastos main chain.

3) EasySwap: With Essentials’ newest tool, users can now convert assets from new chains into ELA and other tokens directly on the Elastos Smart Chain (ESC) – and all in a single touch. EasySwap also features a newly designed onboarding screen for smooth user flow from dApps via the Connectivity SDK.

Major Enhancements

In addition to augmenting powerful new features, the Essentials team made a series improvements to the Essentials Wallet, completed significant technical reworks, and carried out many miscellaneous tweaks and changes to ensure that Essentials version 2.6.0 stands out as the best home base the Elastos ecosystem has yet to get its hands on.
