How to Create and Use CCVault Cardano Wallet

Multiple wallets are being created and released to access the dApps on the Cardano blockchain.

While familiar Cardano wallets such as Nami, Yoroi, and Daedalus are used by many, CCVault is getting traction nowadays.

Particularly, the launch of SundaeSwap has brought many users to CCVault. At the time of the SundaeSwap launch, many users have faced ‘Transaction Failed’ issues especially with the Nami wallet.

Cardano users have faced a few issues with the Yoroi wallet also.

The launch of SundawSwap, a decentralized exchange (DEX) and automated liquidity provision protocol, caused network congestion in the Cardano ecosystem. During these times, CCVault is the only wallet that performed decently despite the congestion.

CCVault’s performance, its adoption by several dApps, and some of its unique features made a name for it among Cardano users.

With CCVault, you can manage all your existing wallets such as Yoroi, Daedalus, and Nami.

CCVault is a Cardano light wallet. CCVault is on the mission to become the Cardano community wallet by implementing features that are requested by Cardano users.
