MyCrypto: What You Need To Know

February 9th, 2018

For any press inquiries, please email press@mycrypto.com.

This is the condensed story of MyEtherWallet, and how we’ve been lead down the path to MyCrypto. It’s cut down from Taylor’s massive statement so we can quickly tell you what you need to know.

There are some big changes happening in 2018 to ensure our longevity in the blockchain space. We will do our best to ensure everything happens smoothly and transparently. Thank you for your time.

MyEtherWallet started with just two people, kvhnuke and tayvano. It was a simple interface that provided a simple solution to a problem: when Ethereum first launched, the only way to send your Ether was via command line.

A whole lot of stuff happened between the beginning and now, and that is all detailed in Taylor’s massive statement.

At the end of 2017, we saw the end of the side-project. 2018 will ensure we have a solid foundation for the product, the company, and the team. It is this solid foundation that ensures our long-term stability and success, in 2018 and beyond.

Which Leads To…

MyEtherWallet LLC was sufficient for the early stages of growth. MyCrypto is designed with next-level scaling in mind from the beginning. The team assembled over the past 9 months and Taylor will now be building, providing support, educating, and ensuring the security of https://mycrypto.com and all future products.

We are confident this will contribute greatly to the entire ecosystem in the long-term.

Kvhnuke remains in control of the MEW github repository, the MEW domain, the AWS instances, and the MyEtherWallet social media accounts.

What This Means For You

You now have a choice between using MEW or https://mycrypto.com. The team will be building and making improvements to https://mycrypto.com and the infrastructure behind it.

We will continue to do our best to help folks who have questions and need help, regardless of the product they are using, even if those products are not technically what the MyCrypto support box was designed for. Just as we have always attempted to answer questions and give guidance about specific tokens, other exchanges, other wallets, we will continue doing so for MEW.

The people who have helped you over the years via email or Twitter or Facebook or Skype or Slack or Reddit or Github will remain the same. However, these people will now be reachable via https://support.mycrypto.com/, support@mycrypto.com and the new social media platforms:

The new react & typescript codebase has been audited. Pending a few minor updates, public beta testing will commence in the coming weeks. This codebase will eventually serve live to https://mycrypto.com. We aim to launch desktop apps and then mobile apps in the coming months.

Until we are confident in the stability & usability of the new codebase, a forked version of the current version of MEW will continue to be maintained and improved on https://mycrypto.com.

MyEtherWallet will continue to be online until it, for whatever reason, is not online. As we do for a number of products in this space, if we at any point determine the domain to be compromised, serving malicious code, or otherwise detrimental to the community, we will do what we can to warn the community and prevent use of that codebase and website. However, we wish the best for MyEtherWallet and hope it continues to be a viable product in this space.

Most of all, we will continue to do what is best for the Ethereum & blockchain community.

As always, thank you for those who have supported us and those who continue to support us. We’ve said it a million times, but we literally wouldn’t be here without you by our sides, helping us reach new heights and pushing us to be better. This is especially true today. If you have any questions, comments, or feedback, good or bad, please share them with us in the comments here. If you’d like to talk to Taylor personally, she’ll do her best to respond in a timely manner: tay@mycrypto.com.

Thank you.
