a look at the interface of MyCrypto.com can quickly come up associations with the famous site MyEtherWallet. Indeed, one of the developers of the first hour is with Taylor Monahan with on board. This page can you trust and what does this mean for those who previously used MyEtherWallet?
Who often has to do with ethereum-based token, you will know most likely MyEtherWallet . It’s an interface to manage the own Ethereum wallets.

According to surprisingly Taylor Mohanan, one of the co-Founderinnnen behind MyEtherWallet, a new website called MyCrypto.com put on on February 9, the Twitter handle by @myetherwallet in @mycrypto renamed and in a detailed medium-post the reasons outlined. Just the change of the Twitter handle made of strong controversy in the community and was now reversed.
Summary one can say that in your opinion MyEtherWallet was placed not good for organic growth and this should change with MyCrypto.com. You therefore dissociates itself from MyEtherWallet and launches a private, very similar project.
Also, kvhnuke, the second co-founder of MyEtherWallet, has expressed himself . The sound was very businesslike and friendly. Also if you could tell that he was surprised about the decision by Taylor Mohanan and absolutely not could approve the name change of the Twitter accounts, he wants yet Taylor and her team.

In both cases it is however stressed that could no private keys are stored and because the projects are open source, each of the correctness of this statement convince yourself.
MyCrypto.com is currently MyEtherWallet in green. Of course, some concerns, if you can believe a project which has so abruptly formed by a fork (and a theft of the Twitter handle) exist in the community. Here MyCrypto.com is need to prove himself. Certainly it with funds, you can risk, can test the secession of MyEtherWallet. Currently, there is no reason, however, to do this since the page offers no features that would differentiate them from MyEtherWallet.
