Cardano (ADA) continues to move further in its smart contracts integration on its blockchain. Cardano announced about a week ago that it had successfully completed the long-awaited Alonzo White Hard Fork. And with this, the project was moving on to the next phase of the integration.
Smart contracts on the Cardano network will allow developers to build decentralized finance (DeFi), NFTs, decentralized identity (DID), and countless other things not the network. This is why the move to smart contracts support is very important for the network.
Continuing on down this road, Cardano has now launched a connector for DApps integration on the network using its Yoroi Wallet. Yoroi Wallet comes from the commercial arm and solutions provider of the Cardano Ecosystem known as EMURGO.
The Beta version of the connector was announced four months ago via a press release on the EMURGO website. This was in an effort to make a way for Cardano (ADA) and Ergo (ERG) users to be able to make DApp transactions on the blockchain with no problems.
The connector provides more incentives for DeFi developers to build solutions and services on the blockchains. And with Yoroi Wallet, seamlessly transfer between both networks. After months of Beta testing, Yoroi Wallet has announced that the App connector is now available for users on the blockchain.
The connector will increase adoption worldwide on the network. Bringing more and more people into the decentralized global operating system that was made for a user base that spans around the globe.

Functions Of Cardano’s Yoroi Wallet Connector
The Yoroi Wallet connector provides a much-needed bridge between users and blockchain-based decentralized apps (DApps) to enable them to access the services they require. The DApp connector will allow users to carry out activities permitted by the DApp that they are currently accessing.

These activities include the buying and selling of tokens, getting access to resources provides by that DApp, and/or accessing features offered by the DApp.
The bridge provided by the Yoroi Wallet connector also permits the validation of owners of specific assets. Also allowing executions for transactions for the DApp, a functionality that would bring access to things like NFTs.

More importantly, is the fact that the Yoroi Wallet connector will act as the communication medium between the Cardano blockchain and smart contracts once the network is able to support them.
Users can get access to the connector by simply adding it as a plugin on their preferred browser of choice. From there, they can access whatever features they wish to use.
