MyCrypto Launches Public Beta
Try it now at beta.mycrypto.com!
We’re excited to finally announce the next generation of MyCrypto at beta.mycrypto.com. This is a complete rewrite of our codebase to be more secure and robust and set ourselves up for faster scaling and iteration moving forward.
The current codebase, while battle-tested and proven, is not optimal for the future. We want to build for the long term. With the new MyCrypto, we’re laying a foundation that sets up the Ethereum ecosystem for success.
This is a step in the right direction.
Now is the fun part: you get to use it, enjoy it, and please help us find any remaining rough edges that we can smooth out.
This new codebase is written in React + Typescript, which will replace the Angular stack that you see currently. This also sets us up nicely for desktop apps and mobile apps.

We’ve implemented feedback from the Cure53 audit we received in February and are confident in the integrity of our serving infrastructure as well as our completely rebuilt application stack.
Some of the things we’ve implemented include:
- Sub-resource integrity for loaded scripts
- Stronger Keystore files, with 8192 hashing rounds and a web-worker based solution to prevent blocking UI 😀
- Upgraded Security headers to help prevent XSS attacks and faking the site via iFrames
We have also launched a HackerOne Response program and formalized our vulnerability response program. We hope that the creation of this program will allow for the responsible disclosure of critical vulnerabilities should they arise, and look forward to working with the wider security community. HackerOne will be rolling out at a slower pace and we will announce when it’s ready for public usage.
Along with significant performance, stability, and tons of general UI improvements, we’ve implemented a number of major features that we think you’ll find really useful.
Revamped Gas Price
Our gas price UI has received a significant revamp. The first step we took was to remove the gas price from the header, and make it more contextually relevant (visible in account, contract, and swap views). With our new gas price recommendation integration, cheap (and fast) transactions are right around the corner. The days of manually checking gas prices are over! Finally, if you’d like to set a custom gas price, we’ve added advanced functionality to let you set you set gas price at your own discretion.
Our upgraded token UI includes a scanner functionality to auto-detect tokens with non-zero balances related to your account address. You can easily toggle to select relevant tokens, and we continue to support adding custom tokens to your hearts content!
QR Codes for Payment Requests
As one of the first to implement EIP-681, MyCrypto allows you to request payments via QR Code 😀
Combined Offline Views
The Account view now directly handles offline sending. Although certain wallets options aren’t available offline due to technical limitations, you’ll no longer need to navigate to another tab to craft transactions offline.
Integrated View Wallet
We’ve added the functionality previously found in “View Wallet” as a sub-tab in the Account View, including:
- Private Key QR Code
- Public Address QR Code
- Printing Paper Pallet
- Re-generating Keystore File
Mnemonic phrase generation
Better mnemonic unlock dialog w/ token balance view
Show equivalent values for all your ETH & tokens (or individually)
How You Can Help
These features only scratch the surface of the many improvements we’ve made. We’re incredibly excited to share this monumental release with the community, and are eager to hear your feedback.
