Recently, the whole team is working mostly on two projects: Prometheus and Icarus. The latter one is an extension for the browser Google Chrome which can be ported to various mobile apps and Mozilla Firefox. It is a full functioning wallet on the browser with no need of the entire blockchain. It is installed with a one-click procedure from the web store, the Daedalus wallet can be imported and you can recover the wallet in 2 minutes.
