SecuX Technology Inc. is pleased to confirm the launch of new features – which include the support of WalletConnect, Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and Cardano (ADA), to be released on July 29, 2021, as well as the new user interface of the firm’s SecuXess web app.
The new support allows SecuX wallet users to gain access an extensive range of decentralized finance (DeFi) apps including OpenSea and Uniswap. The receiving, sending and staking of Cardano’s ADA token and BEP-20 tokens is also supported.
Although BSC and Cardano (ADA) support is only available via SecuXess web application, WalletConnect is “only supported on the iOS App for iOS mobile device access,” the announcement noted.
All features require users “to connect their SecuX hardware wallets to computer via USB, and perform a firmware update (MCU firmware version 2.13) as well as an SE update (SE version 1.87 for Cardano Ada users) procedure on the SecuXess web application with Chrome browser,” according to a release shared with CI.
As confirmed in the update, the latest MCU and SE firmware versions will be “available for update starting “from July 29, 2021, 06:00 EST.” For more instructions on how to update firmware, check here.
As noted in the announcement:
“Ada Portal is our newly launched platform dedicated to the receiving, sending and staking of Cardano ADA. It is accessed via the SecuXess web application, and connection verification will be required while switching from one to the other for extra security measures. Note that your Cardano ADA portfolio will only be shown and managed on Ada Portal, the SecuX hardware wallet will be used for verifying and authorizing transactions, and will not show account balances.”
The new WalletConnect feature also “requires the latest version of the SecuX Mobile App (App version 1.8.0),” the release noted while adding that after you update your wallet on SecuXess web application, “disconnect from the USB cable and enable Bluetooth function on the wallet as well as your mobile phone or tablet, login to your SecuX Mobile App and proceed to App update.”
The update confirmed that this version “only allows WalletConnect support for Ethereum and ERC-20 tokens; WalletConnect support for BSC BEP-20 tokens will be released in the next update.”
Firmware Update to MCU version 2.13 “will be available from (06:00 EST, July 29th, 2021)”
Update “includes: 1. ADA, BSC and BEP-20 token support. 2. Sign message and EIP712 support. 3. Chain ID support for ETH and BSC. 4. Refine SE upgrade flow.” For additional information on these updates, check here.
