In 2015, when Ethereum was in its infancy and even Bitcoin was still fairly unknown, MyEtherWallet became one of the first client-side interfaces for the Ethereum blockchain.
The project was conceived simply, in the spirit of helping an expanding group of users, not all of them equipped with technical knowledge, have an easier interaction with the blockchain. That spirit continues to inspire MEW today.
You could say we ‘grew up’ with the Ethereum community, becoming daily witnesses to the importance of sharing experience, nurturing camaraderie, and building up a foundation of educational materials for developers and users in this new technological space.
TeamMEW has always dedicated time and resources to providing users with security tips, reminders, alerts, and explainers on social media channels like Twitter and Reddit, in our Knowledge Base, and on Medium.
With increasing adoption, more crypto beginners are coming onboard every day, so we are redoubling our educational and community building efforts on our new platform – MEWtopia.
What is MEWtopia
If ‘utopia’ is an imagined place or state of things where everything is perfect, and ‘dystopia’ is an imagined state or society where everything is quite awful, we like to think that MEWtopia is a state of crypto existence where everything is MEW – user-friendly, secure, clear, inviting, and engaging.
We hope that everyone who comes to MEWtopia can feel like they finally found 'their people' in the crypto space. We will do our best to make MEWtopia a comfortable and comforting place to learn about crypto, share ideas, discover new ways of interacting with the space, and become part of a supportive community.
Learn about Ethereum
MEW aims to provide a complete and intuitive Ethereum blockchain experience that extends beyond viewing and sending tokens. Correspondingly, MEWtopia aspires to offer readers useful content beyond the ‘Top-20 Airdrops’ clickbait and ‘Crypto 101’ articles that claim to be basic, but seem to start in the middle of a techie conversation.
Starting with what Ethereum is and how it works, first and foremost we want to make sure you are aware of best security practices in crypto, because it's a big and exciting world out there. Come back to MEWtopia often to learn about tokens, decentralized apps (DApps), and the best opportunities for earning passive income in crypto, like decentralized finance (DeFi) and staking on Ethereum 2.0.
Help MEWtopia grow
MEWtopia, as the name suggests, is powered by MEW (MyEtherWallet).
As a company that has always embraced the values of open-source software and decentralization, MEW intends to stay free to use and free of distractions. User donations have been a big part of that – and you can donate to MEWtopia and MEW at the same Ethereum and Bitcoin addresses.
Most importantly, though – visit our page, read our articles, share content that you find interesting, follow MEW on Twitter, join our community on Reddit, or subscribe to our Telegram channel to keep up with the latest posts, and write us at firstname.lastname@example.org with comments, ideas, suggestions.
We dream of making MEWtopia a vibrant gathering place for the crypto community, beginners and experts alike, but we can’t do it without the support of our MEW family.
Thanks for reading, and we are looking forward to seeing you around.
