Buterin expressed his readiness to implement the proposal, if the community deems the restriction of emissions necessary.

If the community wants fixed supply and people believe that EIP 960 is a good way to achieve that, then it should adopt the proposal. If the community does not, then it should not. This is true regardless of whether or not the original intent was in jest.

According to Vitalik, most of the community did not notice another April Fool's joke, which was hidden in the message about the establishment of the official stable crypto currency on the basis of Ethereum.

Developers of the popular wallet MyEtherWallet presented the final version of the mobile application MEW Connect.

The application provides a secure login to user accounts. With MEW Connect, users do not need to enter a private key to open a wallet. Instead of using a private key, the introduction of which may pose a security risk, the user reads a special QR code.

Kosala Hemachandra, MyEtherWallet founder in talk with TechCrunch said that he he hopes beta users will comb through the code and help find issues with the app before its wider release.

The app is available for both iOs and Android. MyEtherWallet.com service is visited daily by about 600 thousand users.

Recall, the beta version of MEW Connect was introduced in July.
