MyEtherWallet has had a dramatic split into MyCrypto with the co-founder and team jumping ship to create a similar but alternative project. Lots of unanswered questions abound as the drama unfolds.

Thanks, you spared me much headache. Who needs crooks. Just imagine the karma they incur with the black magic community. Cancer, blood pressure, diabetes to mention a few. Plus bad luck. This day and age it is best to be pure. You are such a gentleman and will be back.
Dont be offended. but when I first saw you, I thought it was Ron Jeremy gimmick on vids of crypto. Wasn't sure if it was legit.
After watching you, your insight and information is top notch. Excellent work!!
you are one of the best in crypto infos. and I have seen your globate ico video and manage to buy some token and this mew video is something new and a bit scary. anyways keep up your wonderful and informative job. thank u
more crap that makes me feel like leaving kryto, it's just a bounch of scammers. there is no trust in this kryto world. people are just waiting to rip everyone off, either through ICO scams or hacks. These hacks are happening too much. I've never had a single stock stolen from any of my stock accounts??? Think about it, the best softwre can't stop hackers, then that is sad. Get the hacks fixed, or the real money won't come into the market.
I think you are jumping to a lot of conclusions here. Kosala started MEW and brought in Taylor to help with the business end of things. Why would he suddenly stop contributing?? Red flags! Taylor and her husband now decided for a hostile takeover because of irreconcilable differences. Nothing wrong in going Ur own way but this is exactly how not to do it. I bet kosala's lawyers can't wait to pounce!
Speaking of Wallets and Scams, I can find no bigger scam than Bitpay's wallet.
A few months ago, I transferred some money to a new Bitpay Wallet only to later find out that Bitpay wouldn't allow me to transfer less than $100 out, because of the dramatically higher fees the miner's were charging. Before realizing this, and after moving some funds around, I ended up with less than $100 stuck in Bitpay, so I thought no problem, I'll just use their new Shapeshift conversion feature, to turn my Bitcoins into Bitcoin Cash, and that way I can get out my money, since the BCH fees are minimal.
BIG PROBLEM .... YOU CAN'T SEND BITCOIN CASH FROM A BITPAY WALLET FOLKS. You can only transfer out Bitcoins. So what's the point of offering Shapeshift in the firsts place, if you can't utilize the cheaper transfer option? The reason is obvious, it's a scam designed to make you believe you have options, when you really have ZERO with BitPay.
I tried performing a search of this issue all OVER the Internet, and found zero discussion about this scam. The only people making money using the Bitpay Wallet are the miners. It's the worst option for a wallet I can possibly imagine. Stay FAR FAR away from Bitpay.
Taylor stealing the twitter account is such a punk move that I will NEVER support the MyCrypto project. If she and other members didn't like the current situation they could have bought Kosala out and ran MyEtherWallet as they see fit. Instead they think theft is the better option. Good luck explaining that in court. U'll notice that when Kosala did work on the project the last 6 months it was fixing Taylor's coding f#%kups. I'll be sticking with MyEtherWallet.
"coding" wtf did she even code, this bitch dissolved mew llc to basically kill the project and in the medium article she "wishes the best" for MEW. Also it was kvhnuke who started mew she came in later and was there for social media presence and support.
Between Kucoin, Binance, myetherwallet and many other past problems, it's clear we're still in the beginning stages of crypto development. Growing pains I suppose. Thanks for the information and assessment on myether.
Edit: Sorry, I can see that both websites work with my Ledger. Doesn't matter which one you decide to use.
Lark, should we be concerned that MEW will shut down? You think it should be OK to have funds on there for now?
I think it's cool to make your own thing if that's what you want to do, but taking the twitter handle is pretty sketchy imo lol.. I was like who the hell is this i'm following when i went on twitter this morning lol...
Great vid Lark, Glad to see you getting more subs and growing ;)
Lessons: Don't use MyCrypto or MyEtherWallet, seems to be run by a bunch of children who can't agree with each other. A venture capitalist like YC would stay away from this garbage. Wallets are pretty low hanging fruit, I suggest using a different wallet (there are probably thousands) until this bullshit gets cleared.
I have a hardware wallet myself, and idc about how much work Taylor did or how much of the team she brought over, but if you guys want to insert your JSON files, private keys, encrypted passwords, etc. into a site that conducts themselves like Mycrypto, then go ahead. If this whole story is true, then why would Taylor do something as sketchy as to hijack the MEW twitter? For "personal use" and "relationships"? Really guys? Think for 2 seconds. 78k people didn't subscribe to Taylor or Mycrypto, they subbed to MEW. Taylor or Mycrypto didn't get verified by twitter, MEW did. If they're not happy with with the state and direction of MEW and want to split, then why not just start their own twitter? Personal use and relationships, I mean really?? That is so unbelievably unprofessional not to mention unethical. Also not 100% sure how credible Virus Total is, but it's worth noting that they have Mycrypto marked as a "phishing" site by 3 different entities, and "suspicious" by 1 other. Here is the link: https://www.virustotal.com/#/url/420d7e7e680ed367bb64c679f6d8c08fe463c8db3f577c177567ef0bf2ba8368/detection
No one can know for sure what really went down, and who knows maybe kvhnuke was the lazy jerk here, but it shouldn't matter regardless because that is NO EXCUSE to completely hijack a verified twitter with such a large following like that. Does no one see how much this hurts the credibility, reputation, and trust of the crypto space, especially when there's so many scams already going around? The whole situation is absolutely unprofessional, disgusting, and a blatant disregard and disrespect to the community in my opinion, and it's even more disappointing that reputable people in the space are justifying these actions. Regardless of the team, github commits, better products, it doesn't matter....this makes the entire space look so untrustworthy and amateur, and there's people out there actually defending it...smh.
edited my post a bit to add a link for reference and be a little easier, more understanding, and respecting of your perspective @The Crypto Lark because I always genuinely value your input...just trying to paint the whole picture. I personally won't be touching people who conduct themselves like that with a 10 ft pole.
That was unprofessional by mycrypto ... I feel like that was a emotional move... females are super emotional and I feel like she displayed her female nature doing that ... not sayin she couldn’t leave but the approach tho
I don't find Eidoo to be user friendly at all and I'm a Sr. UX Designer. Professionally, I get paid for finding issues in application user flows and creating fixes for them.
1. No instructions in app or on the site as to how to get the list from coinmarketcap visually represented.
2. No copy for the receiving address? How did you get your ETH into the app? It's a standard UI pattern across almost all desktop and mobile solutions to have a "copy address" text or icon for accomplishing that task.
3. Trust Wallet, one of many wallets I own, adds the ERC's exactly like it should. It makes it clear that it's added "automagically" or that you can do it manually and the interface is exactly like adding tokens to metamask so the experience translates well from others tools to this tool.
4. While I understand that English may not be the developer's main language, to avoid user confusion he needs to audit the copy on his website and especially the app. Look the depth of the team and then look at the site language again.
5. Do you know why most of the Eidoo team actually has no record of ever working at Eidoo? Most of the team belongs to a company called Etnograph, which was co-founded by their UX architect? Some people like the CTO is also a developer? That's maybe not abnormal but what is is why he has two profiles spaces to make their team seem deeper than it really is?
6. I personally don't believe a UX designer or UI designer worth their salt worked on this app.
Etnograph is listed as a partner, yet Eidoo took every profile from under that partner bucket (just logos mind you) and blew it out into their team section. There's a few problems with that and it seems like this company may have some ethical issues.
My thoughts exactly. Certain things I won't budge on no matter how much gains I know I can make on moral principles. But, I have to attachment to these sites or exchanges for that matter. Whoever delivers the best product is who I'm naturally going to use.
I'm only concern about where I will register my Eos private keys when the time comes.. was going get my meta mask to talk to MEW, but now, I'm stuck.. don't know a whole lot about these two regardless...
She should have made some kind of announcement before just stealing the Twitter account and changing it to the name she wanted. That was bs. I know she worked her butt off on MEW tickets and all but still.
Lark. Good points. I was not looking at the side of whole team leaving myetherwallet. Other ppl are reassuring that myethrwallet is safe but after your points at the situation really one should think. Thats all good but why you guys do not share a solution also. You pointed out really something to think about but why dont you guys go further and suggest alternative solutions. You can say that we can use metamask or other erc20 wallet extensions or desktop software. Not everybody has got access to hardware wallets. And I wonder why Exodus can't add support for erc20 tokens!!!
wow, Master Lark, thanks for the info. So much ridiculous drama in cryptoland. I will likely move all I can out to Exodus but there are coins that will be stuck, I think, for the time being. Just another illustration about how "wild west" crypto remains if a spat between two people can have such an impact on the savings and investments of many people. Hmm, "decentralization" maybe not really is such.
Time to move tokens to Blue Wallet. They're easier to use and more secure. $BLUE is epic tech. they found a critical flaw in the Jaxx wallet, found the central locking sketchy feature in TRON, and were the ones to discover the Etherdelta Hack.
and if BLUE’s tech was around at that time, they could’ve blacklisted the scammer’s address so not nearly as many people would have been screwed.
Figured it out for those who are curious here. It was or still is down only for people in the US who speak English. They cant access the site because of en_US.json. To get around it, one has to change their Browser language to anything but US English. Once the language has been changed just restart the browser and access Kucoin.
You know what ? This shit all pisses me the consumer, holder,investor in cryptos right off !! I'm fuckin sick of this kinda shit in cryptos ...wallets are a hot topic ,security is severely lacking , now cry babies whining about this or that lazy idiots riding the wave ....how is crypto ever going to be taken serious or mass adopted when idiots do stuff like this as well I'm losing patience with the constant rapid changing sphere in crypto , this is safe now it's not update this or that 1:1 swaps for this or that token ...just complete chaos ....I hold wabi,qsp,eng,bar,all erc20 tokens on mew ....now what where do I put these ? I'm friken pissed!! Let's find a safe solid place a wallet we can all depend on that's safe and sound!! Get your shit together guys !! im ready to dump all of my Lars and just dump everything into bitcoin. Fuckit . This is not cool !!i don't want 85 bloody wallets just to keep and or carry my cryptos with me to spend .....maybe centralized fiat ain't sooo bad after all eh? Lol jk I'm not that pissed but this is horse fish!!
I'll be using MyEtherWallet. They've been trustworthy in the past and the founder who has stuck with it clearly aims to continue the site. As for MyCrypto, they will need to build community trust for me from scratch. They could very easily have a sinister motive (or not of course) which made them want to split.
*MEW > MyCrypto for the time being.*
Pretty crappy thing to do. At least give people some warning about founding the new site....But then again I guess that would also give warning to "stealing" the twitter account.
Pretty sure a Ledger will be safe on both sites. Correct me if i'm wrong!
After reading both of the founders statements. It seems to me that Taylor put her blood sweat and tears into MEW and she wanted to make it bigger and better moving into the future. I will be going to mycrypto as soon as they roll the final product out
No I don't think so, mycrypto has been in the works since 6 months, coincidentally when kvhnuke stopped contributing code.
And why did taylor dissolve MEW llc without kvhnuke. She clearly wanted to kill the project and start her own company without kvhnuke.
How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
