The fake app doesn't have any relation to the electronic purse for storing ETH and other coins. This is reported by TechCrunch.

Before fake MyEtherWallet app Nam Le created two gaming applications about combat pandas, but never had anything to do with electronic wallets or other crypto-currency applications.

The application allows users to create or import wallets for storing crypto-currency assets outside the exchanges. At the same time, an unknown developer is more likely to gain control over private keys to manage wallets.

In addition, the application is built on the basis of open source, but the developer made it paid, trying to monetize public technology.

It's not clear how the application managed to get through the AppStore check and get into the top rating.

The head of the World Food Program (WFP) Robert Opp said that his department is developing a financial infrastructure for more efficient use of distributed ledger technology. With the help of the Ethereum blockchain, the organization has already saved millions of dollars on bank commissions. 

We felt we could replace the services offered by banks with blockchain. Blockchain helps promote collaboration by providing enormous amounts of data. We’re putting in place a financial infrastructure.

Director, UN WFP

 It is worth noting that WFP didn't talk about specific plans for the further implementation of Ethereum technology.

Earlier, the UN launched a pilot program Building Blocks to assist refugees in Jordan. As part of the program, cryptographically unique coupons representing a certain number of local dinars were distributed among several dozen stores in five refugee camps.
