MyCrypto is an open-source, client-side tool for generating Ether wallets, handling ERC-20 tokens, and making interacting with the blockchain easier.
Developed in 2015, the company aims to “put the power in people’s hands”. That means taking responsibility for their own crypto assets and improving their cybersecurity habits in general.
MyCrypto is incentivising users to improve their online security
Yesterday, MyCrypto kicked off its #MyCryptoWinter campaign with the backing of several supporters. #MyCryptoWinter is all about educating the community by incentivising them to improve their online behaviour.
The contest encourages people to make a conscious effort to store their crypto assets correctly. But it also extends to people’s overall security habits online.
#MyCryptoWinter☃️ IS BACK!

Throughout December, MyCrypto will reveal new security tips on its Twitter account every day. These will include action items that you can include in your everyday online surfing “from privacy and security to financial freedom”.
Win prizes for improving your own security
Partnering with some key players in the cryptocurrency space including Maker, ShapeShift, CoinGecko, and Etherscan, MyCrypto really wants you to take crypto asset security seriously.
If you share its tips on Twitter, the company will enter you into a draw to win prizes from all the partners involved.
Don’t get too excited though, we’re not talking about massive crypto payouts here. Lucky winners could walk away with a Ledger hardware wallet, a MyCrypto t-shirt, merchandising from one of its partners, or even just some stickers.
Not exactly a lambo, but not bad either considering you’ll be actively improving your own security and helping others to do so as well.
