On 10th of December, a Twitter user reported about the spotted suspicious application of popular Ethereum wallet at Apple AppStore.

And it became known that the app is fake. It is worth noting that the app isn't free. The iOS app costs $4.99 and it first landed on the App Store just over a week ago. It allows users to create or import a wallet to store cryptocurrencies independently of an exchange.

Finally, the fake app was deleted. We wasn't able to find the official comments from Apple, but MyEtherWallet team is happy.

This is not the first and maybe not the last fake scammy-looking thing in cryptocurrency world. We can only recommend you to extremely careful everytime you deal with money.

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.
