IOTA-based Startup Announced “Ultra Light Ledger” Browser Wallet Romeo - IOTA News. Wednesday, October 3

Deviota Romeo added Ledger support in its public beta.

The release comes after the upcoming rollout of the Ledger IOTA App

IOTA-based startup Deviota has just announced the public beta version of its “Ultra Light Ledger” browser wallet Romeo. The news was made public via a Medium post by one of its developers, Roman Semko, amid the upcoming release of the official Ledger IOTA App.

What is Romeo

Basically, Romeo is a cross-platform, portable browser wallet, which mean it can be run from virtually anywhere. The app is simply a 3.7MB HTML file that is compatible with almost any browser (Safari being the exception). It claims to be fast when completing transactions (about 1-2 seconds, or 14 if using it on Ledger), due to its modular design, page-structure and powsrv.io integration.

Romeo is described by Deviota as a “Ledger”, rather than a wallet, because of its numerous features that sets it apart from other, more traditional cryptocurrency wallets. Among the main features, there is its ledger-like approach to handle lots of addresses and transactions in one single seed, which can lead to long times of synchronization. The wallet uses a page-seed structure that basically acts like a physical ledger – once a “page” gets full, the balance is transferred to the next, empty page, thus solving the slow synching times.

How to integrate with Ledger

Semko explains that the user must have a Ledger Nano with the corresponding IOTA App installed, which although it hasn’t been officially released yet, it can be configured to try out by using VirtualBox and following a procedure to load it up in the Nano. Once done, the user has to run the IOTA app and open the Romeo wallet with a browser, switch to the Ledger Nano tab and select “Login with Ledger”. 

Upcoming features in Romeo

Semko commented that future iterations of their browser-based wallet will have new features and improvements, such as an option to change servers from Field to a custom one, a visually more appealing frontend, faster syncs thanks to a better queue management, among others.
