CIP-95 is the governance extension to the CIP-30 wallet-DApp bridge. For list of supported wallets please check

Cardano Serialization Library (Conway Alpha) - Emurgo

This is an Alpha build and the team are keen to hear feedback via Github Issues.

Cardano SDK

Cardano SDK is a comprehensive suite of Typescript packages suitable for both Node.js and browser-based development, used by Lace at its core for everything relating to the Cardano blockchain.

The core/Serialization package has support for serialization and deserialization, developed from the ground up in Typescript.

Governance Metadata Standards

The Conway ledger era ushers in on-chain governance for Cardano via CIP-1694 | A First Step Towards On-Chain Decentralized Governance, with the addition of many new on-chain governance artifacts. Some of these artifacts support the linking off-chain metadata, as a way to provide context.

There have been three governance metadata standards developed, so far, to define what the off-chain contextual data can look like.

One further standard is around the technical form of the constitution.

  • CIP-0120 | Constitution technical form This proposal aims to describe a standardized technical form for the Cardano constitution. Hoping to enhance the accessibility and safety of the document.
