Co-founder of crypto MyEtherWallet (MEW) Taylor Monaghan (Monahan Taylor) left the project to pursue the development of crypto MyCrypto created on the same code based on Ethereum. The second MEW the Creator of Kosala Hemchandra (Kosala Hemachandra) confirmed the fork, but does not explain the reasons for the gap in detail.
It is expected that extended versions of mobile and desktop applications and new version of the site MyCrypto will appear in the coming months. However, the profile MEW on Twitter was just renamed MyCrypto as Monaghan considered him their personal.
Hey all, don’t freak out but we’re no longer @myetherwallet. MEW still exists, but we’re now MyCrypto. 💙

Now you have the choice to use the MEW or https://mycrypto.com. The team I built will build and develop https://mycrypto.com and its infrastructure. We will try to do everything possible to support those who need help, no matter what product they use…
Monaghan explained that from a hobby-project that in 2015 did two people in their spare time, MEW was rapidly becoming a company of 20 people and the main place of work, and in the second half of 2017, she had to hire people to customer service and service not had to deal with, sacrificing his own sleep.
Monaghan is confident that the crypto sphere will change the world and get out of it now, they will regret it all my life. Therefore, in 2018, she set herself goals: to abandon the idea to combine the project with another job and create the Foundation for a new company and team for their development in the long term. She will continue to develop “best product for inspiring people to interact with Baccano” and hopes to find a balance between security, control, ease of use, privacy, decentralization, and truthfulness.
Recall that in December the fake version of crypto MyEtherWallet in just a week moved up to third place in the category “Finance” in the AppStore, with absolutely no relation to the storage and exchange of cryptocurrencies. Some time later, it was removed from the site. In January of this year, developers MEW had to refute spread in social networks rumors about his hacking spoofing DNS.
