The founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, asked the community to prompt him to quit his work on the crypto platform for the position at Google. This is reported by Cryptovest.

Buterin posted a poll on this issue in his Twitter along with a screenshot of the letter, in which he was offered to join the search giant. Later the tweet was deleted, probably due to the fact that Buterin accidentally opened the email address of the sender (in the original message, the address was completely visible).

The letter was sent by Elizabeth Garcia, a HR specialist at Google, as described in her profile on LinkedIn.

In mid-March, it became known that Google is developing its own solution for the cloud services and a distributed ledger that third parties can use to send and verify transactions.

In April, the founders of the Nebulas, Loopring and Gifto crypto currency projects and former Google employees Hitters Syu, Daniel Wang and Andy Tian created a community called xGoogler Blockchain Alliance (GBA) for other ex-Gougs interested in blocking technology.

The representative of Google also confirmed the information that the company is engaged in its own developments in the field of distributed registry technology, but refused to disclose details.

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.
