The release of the new version of Ethereum-wallet MyCrypto (v. 1.5), supporting the payment service 0x Instant.

As noted in the project blog, the new version of the wallet contains a number of fixes and performance improvements. Added support for scheduled transactions for ERC-20 standard tokens.

However, a key innovation is the integration of the 0x Instant service. The latter allows users to directly buy ERC-20 and ERC-721 tokens, while finding the best prices in the 0x liquidity pool.

Recall that at the end of the summer, the MyCrypto project team raised $ 4 million in investment from Polychain Capital.

The non-profit organization Ethereum Foundation, which promotes and supports the development of the Ethereum ecosystem, will allocate $ 30 million for the development of key projects. Of these, $ 19 million will go to the “ether of the future”, $ 8 million to support the “ether of the present”, and another $ 3 million to attract developers.

The priority direction of development is Ethereum 2.0, second-level solutions for network scaling like Plasma, as well as other studies related to the transition of the ecosystem to the Proof-Of-Stake consensus algorithm.

We've actually already had all the research breakthroughs we need for a full implementation of eth2. This has been the case for about a year now.

At the same time, the organization attaches great importance to maintaining the current version of the network, which provides security of assets worth billions of dollars and hundreds of running decentralized applications.

In addition, $ 3 million will be spent on training developers and their further involvement in the work on the protocol, as well as on holding a Devcon conference and supporting regional communities.

The Ethereum Foundation retains about 0.6% of the total Ethereum emissions, but over time it expects organizations like DAO Moloch to partially finance the development of the ecosystem.
