What is Yello?
Yello is a dead simple and social wallet for Libra. A Proof of Concept with which anyone, including crypto novices, can play around on the Libra testnet. The only thing you have to do is sign in on https://yello.social
Why a custodial wallet?
The first goal of Yello is to keep things as simple as possible. Private keys are still hard to manage for a lot of people, so we decided to make Yello a custodial wallet. But don’t worry. A non-custodial features are on the way.
Social network data…
Yeah, to make Yello social, we ask you to sign in using on of your social networks. A public key is just boring. So we link your name email and profile picture to your transactions. And don’t worry. Yello does not share any of this info with third parties and never will. Basically, the less we know about you the better.
Proof of concept
Yes, Libra has not launched yet and the codebase gets updated daily. This means everything built on Libra breaks a lot. Yello still has its fair share of bugs. So be prepared for things not working.
Why did we make this Proof of Concept?
If Libra ever gets launched, it could be able to bank the unbanked. Imagine what Libra could mean for people without access to stable currencies. Furthermore, we wanted to show what a Libra wallet could like. And that a crypto wallet could also be fun to use.
