Apple let a knockoff version of one of the world's biggest crypto wallets into the App Store
An app masquerading as MyEtherWallet.com, one of the internet’s most popular services for storing ETH and other crypto coins, has made its way to the top of the iOS App Store charts.
The app rose to the number three spot in Finance category of the App Store this weekend as part of a bitcoin frenzy that saw bitcoin exchange Coinbase top Apple’s free download list in the U.S.. In this case, however, it is important to note this app is not official so users should avoid downloading it.
The app developer — who is listed is Nam Le — has three other apps with Apple, including two panda fighting games, but no history of crypto or bitcoin services.
The creators of MyEtherWallet said in a tweet that they have contacted Apple in a bid to have the app removed.
We’ve reached out to Apple to get an idea how it made it through all of the standard safety checks, and to ask whether it will remain in the App Store.

Let's hope the App Store doesn't turn into Play Store
