I'm hanging on to some ETH in my binance account for when WAN hits the exchange.

Bottom line - your crypto is safe. It is never "inside" of MEW. MEW or metamask or mycrypto are merely interfaces to interact within the ethereum virtual machine (blockchain). You will likely be able to use either of these services in the future. MEW looks to be functioning normally right now, but I've not had to use it yet since this divorce.

I read up on this.. I'll follow Taylor to mycrypto. She's a smart woman and will continue to advance the project.

So bottom line, is MEW is an ether wallet that isn't any better than the Pokeman represented by the same name?

Not sure about Pokeman.. but MEW will become stagnant without Taylor. She's the lead developer for myetherwallet. So all new features, will likely skip myetherwallet and go to mycrypto where she can turn it into a proper company and employ staff and raise funds to build a core business in the ecosystem. MEW, will likely fade without development.

Cryptocurrencies ‘could drop to near-zero at any time,’ Ethereum founder warns

Cryptocurrencies are a nascent asset class and could fall violently at any time, the founder of blockchain network Ethereum warned on Saturday.

"Reminder: cryptocurrencies are still a new and hyper-volatile asset class, and could drop to near-zero at any time," Vitalik Buterin said on Twitter. "Don't put in more money than you can afford to lose."

Buterin added: "If you're trying to figure out where to store your life savings, traditional assets are still your safest bet."

Vitalik's advice, "Don't put in more money than you can afford to lose," has been around since mankind has taken to speculating on non-guaranteed performance, such as precious metal, stocks, commodities and now crypto currencies. Woolly mammoth races, perhaps, gave the saying its start. :lol:

People lost their shirts in the Great Depression, the Great Recession, the 2011 silver crash, the 2016 presidential race, the 2018 Super Bowl. Don't bet more than you can afford to lose. A good general rule of thumb that of course includes crypto.

ETH close to breaking up through downtrend line from the peak. Would be bullish if it can and holds. Should know between now and a 1 day or 2 IMHO.

Definitely wants to break on the higher side, but not enough to push it. If it doesn't break this, its pretty much over for the next few months. So many retests but haven't been able to break on the upside.

Vitalik is covering his azz. He doesn't believe that, and neither do I.

Bitcoin started out with a limit of 21 million bitcoins by design of the protocol thanks to Satoshi. Ethereum is open-ended on its emission schedule which gave many purists pause. I've always wondered how this would be handled eventually. Vitalik wants to cap the issuance and switch from PoW to PoS. It will be interesting to see if/how this happens while still maintaining some level of decentralization.

Follow up: it was an April Fool's joke, that people took seriously (because, why wouldn't you?) and now Vitalik is saying perhaps we should take it seriously, even though it was supposed to be a joke? [facepalm]

Read pretty interesting thread this morning on Twitter
1. Guy posts his MEW private key in a chat.
2. $5k worth of Minerium in it, no ETH for gas.
3. Half the people in the chat send gas to take it.
4. Smart contract. Auto-sends the ETH to another address: keeps MNE in the account.

Apparently he is up to .7 ETH and climbing. Scammed some scammers :lol:

Not sure if this was posted before, but Coinbase just added ERC-20 support for their wallets. Meaning there is a chance they will add ERC-20 tokens in the near future (e.g Golem, 0x)

Now that's going to be anybody's guess what the first ERC-20 token will be.

Ethereum is down 17% in the past week. At what point would be a good buy in?
“I, Franklin D Roosevelt…do declare that said national emergency still continues to exist and…do hereby prohibit the hoarding of gold…”

EXECUTIVE ORDER 6102, issued by US president Franklin Delano Roosevelt on April 5th 1933, banned private gold ownership .
