Connect CoolWallet S With MEW
We’re happy to announce that MyEtherWallet (MEW) has introduced support for CoolWallet on its Ethereum platform. This partnership was made possible by both of the dev teams over at CoolBitX and MEW working tirelessly to bring CoolWallet integration to the popular Ethereum platform. This integration brings innovations to the CoolWallet and will hopefully open the doors for many more in the future.
We’re also excited to announce that in celebration of this collaboration, a special edition MEW-branded CoolWallet is now available for presale!
