Disagreements between the founders of MyEtherWallet led to the emergence of contradictory and rumors in the community. Nevertheless, the service continues to operate under the same name and with the same user base, albeit without an officially registered company.

The story began to develop after on the night of Friday, February 9, the official Twitter account MyEtherWallet changed its name to MyCrypto without warning. Many users suggested that the account was compromised, but it soon became clear that it represents the same product, and some developers carried out the "fork" of the project and re-branding.

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.
