MEW (MyEtherWallet), a platform to entry the Ethereum ecosystem, has introduced the launch of a brand new cross-chain browser extension, Enkrypt, which can help transactions throughout Ethereum and Polkadot.
For the primary time, MEW customers will achieve entry to Polkadot, the sharded protocol enabling blockchains to function seamlessly collectively at scale. Enkrypt helps MEW’s purpose to offer safe, non-public, and seamless entry to dApps, NFTs, staking providers, and extra.
The online extension was constructed with the help of the Web3 Basis, a Swiss group that has issued more than 400 grants to initiatives constructing on the Polkadot and Kusama networks.
