We’ll be honest, we’re REALLY excited about this announcement – Nami has joined the Input Output Global product family. Many of you will already know Nami, the non-custodial wallet platform that was created by Alessandro Konrad in 2021. We’d like to say thank you to Alessandro for building and developing such a great product, and entrusting IOG with the future of Nami. We’d also like to give a massive warm welcome to Nami users.

"Reflecting on it now, it feels surreal what Nami has turned into. It all started with my desire to create DApps and a marketplace contract for SpaceBudz on Cardano. Frustrated, I discovered the essential infrastructure to bring this vision to life was lacking. However this setback didn’t deter me.

Instead, I decided to build a wallet as well, completing the crucial missing link. After launching Nami a few months later, it began to garner significant attention, surpassing my expectations. As it continued to grow, it became harder for one person to manage it, and at one point I had to make a decision: either I turn Nami into a business venture of my own or find a capable steward for it. Personally, the latter resonated more with me as I like to continuously explore new things and I have a lot on my plate already. Operating a wallet as a business takes up a substantial part of your time. In this context, I couldn’t be happier with Nami finding its new home under IOG’s guidance. They possess the necessary resources and expertise to provide Nami with the support it has long needed.”

- Alessandro Konrad

“Alessandro Konrad did a phenomenal job developing Nami as a leading wallet known for its convenience and ease of use in the Cardano community. We’re excited about the next phase in Nami’s journey and want to thank Alessandro for putting his faith in IOG’s future stewardship of Nami, and to build on all the great work he has done. We’ll be working closely with him as we manage this transition, and wish him well as he continues to explore and build new products and services for the Cardano ecosystem.”

Looking ahead, IOG is excited about the future evolution of Nami, aligning its features with our broader product strategy. We’ll share that vision in due course, so stay tuned for more updates on this. Meanwhile, we want to assure the Nami community that it is very much business as usual and you’ll be able to continue using the product you know and enjoy.”
