Two years ago, Kukai launched its open source Tezos web wallet based on three principles: Security, Community, and Reliability.
Today, we are excited to announce a new evolution of Kukai with a more user-friendly design for both mobile and desktop browsers. When we first started to reimagine the Kukai web wallet we wanted to adopt a process that balanced security best practices, clear guidance for new Tezos users, and maintaining our track record of reliability. A better informed user who encounters fewer surprises is less vulnerable to the types of social engineering attacks that are common in crypto networks.
Kukai 1.8 also introduces HD (hierarchical deterministic) wallets but includes full backwards compatibility. The Babylon upgrade changed the dynamics for users in regard to no longer requiring smart contracts for delegation. All newly created Kukai wallets will be HD* wallets by default but will also maintain full compatibility with all older (legacy) wallets.View multiple accounts easily
With Kukai having deep roots in the Tezos community, we are actively listening to feedback and will continue to iterate at an even faster pace on newer versions of Kukai based on community needs. We are also connected closely to the Working Wallet Group to ensure Kukai is building a wallet that follows established guidelines and expectations. We look forward to seeing more engagement across the ecosystem, not just in Kukai, but in all wallets.Kukai Links

Multiple tz1 accounts can be created in an HD wallet if users want to del...
