February 14, 2019 – Ethereum Wallet MyEtherWallet (MEW) has released a new version of its crypto platform that focuses on making it more user-friendly.
Anyone who has visited or used MEW in the past knows the website is barebones with a focus on instilling knowledge to users on how to navigate cryptocurrencies, whether instructions on creating new wallets or even transferring tokens to other wallets.
The new MyEtherWallet features a minimalist design with a highlight on its most important features – creating new wallets and accessing wallets. As for creating a new wallet MEW gives the option to use MEWconnect, its own wallet app available on mobile devices. Other ways – like by creating a Keystore File and by using Mnemonic Phrases are still available. (Read More: The Best Crypto Wallets for Filipino Hodlers.)
MyEtherWallet allows users to access their wallet. There are 4 options: via hardware, MetaMask, software, and through MEWconnect. MEW said it supports most major hardware wallets such as Ledger and Trezor.
Finally, a “swap” feature allows users to swap fiat to crypto, ETH and BTC, ETH and ERC-20 etc. This is made possible by MEW’s partnerships with the following firms: Changelly, Simplex, Kyber Network, and Bity. (Read More: Using Abra to Buy Bitcoins in the Philippines)
