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.

Digital currencies, such as bitcoin, litecoin and ethereum, are more and more widely accepted as currency and as stores of value.

Staff counsel for the commission David Buerger convinced he is not yet aware of any establishments in Wisconsin in which cryptocurrency contributions to state campaigns were given or accepted. Bitcoin is strongly supported by Libertarians. The idea of a decentralized cryptocurrency, not regulated by a central official or bank, is alongside their political views and opposition to government control over the national currency.

During Tuesday’s meeting, commissioners offered that if cryptocurrencies were estimated as a monetary contribution, crypto donations would be issued with the $100 limit towards to cash contributions. Larger donations have to be made by a credit card either a bank check.
