One of the key features of Yoroi is its focus on security. It uses advanced cryptographic techniques to protect user funds, including the use of hierarchical deterministic (HD) wallets and hardware security modules (HSMs) to store private keys. Yoroi also integrates with Ledger hardware wallets for added security. Yoroi also supports the use of Cardano's native tokens, including Ada, the primary cryptocurrency of the network, and other tokens that are built on top of the Cardano platform.
