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.
