It’s been a very busy end of the year for all Project Hydro team members and developers. The Hydro community has been asking for the Hydro wallet for some time and now we’re very happy to announce the release of Hydro Web Wallet- ÆGIR.

The ÆGIR Web Wallet provides a convenient way to interact with all aspects of the Hydro ecosystem. To interact with Snowflake and the wallet you must install MetaMask and have a balance of Ethereum in it. 

Why did we choose the ÆGIR name for our Hydro Wallet?

ÆGIR is the god of the sea in Norse mythology, also known as a king of all the oceans. Just like God of the sea is the most important part, governing the sea, we think that the Hydro wallet- ÆGIR will be the most important part of our Hydro ecosystem.
