Creator of Ethereum Vitalik Buterin and team of OmiseGO project announced a boycott of the upcoming conference Consensus 2018, organized by the CoinDesk. The reason for this was, in particular, two materials of the agency, one of which published a direct link to the web-site of scammers, and in the other - "sensational" information about the alleged Ethereum's hardfork.

It is worth noting that at the time of publication of the CoinDesk note, it was already known that representatives of the Ethereum community voted against the unlocking of 513 000 ETH on Parity wallets, and the developers of Parity Technologies assured that they did not achieve the new Ethereum hardware. Since then, the material CoinDesk has been repeatedly edited, but the screenshots of the original text can be easily found on the Internet.

Vitalik also reported on "gotchas".

The developers of the MetaMask Ethereum wallet wallet have opened the way for everyone to test the beta version of a mobile application available for Android and iOS.

According to the developers, the application is synchronized with the cryptowallet in the initial browser extension. It also allows you to manage crypto-assets, send ETH users and ERC-20 and ERC-721 standard tokens using ENS names (Ethereum Name Service), and interact with decentralized applications (dApps).

In addition, the application supports InstaPay payment channels for instant and free transactions. It also implements Web3 functionality, support for IPFS and various solutions to ensure a high level of security.

The launch of the mobile application MetaMask was announced 9 months ago during the Devcon4 conference in Prague.
