MyEtherWallet is a doorway to the Ethereum blockchain, allowing users to manage their own funds without a centralized platform. - Stephen, #MEWForce

"MyEtherWallet Logo


  • Empower the people: Give people the ability to interact with the Ethereum blockchain easily, without having to run a full node.
  • Make it easy & free: Everyone should be able to create a wallet and send Ether & Tokens without additional cost.
  • People are the Priority: People are the most important & their experience trumps all else. If monetization worsens the experience, we don't do it. (e.g. ads)
  • A learning experience, too: We want to educate about Ethereum, security, privacy, the importance of controlling your own keys, how the blockchain works, and how Ethereum and blockchain technologies enable a better world.
  • If it can be hacked, it will be hacked: Never save, store, or transmit secret info, like passwords or keys.
  • Offline / Client-Side: User should be able to run locally and offline without issue.
  • Private: No tracking!!! No emails. No ads. No demographics. We don't even know how many wallets have been generated, let alone who / what / where you are.
  • Open source & auditable

Getting started

  1. Open terminal
  2. Clone the repo: git clone
  3. go into repo: cd MyEtherWallet
  4. run git checkout develop
  5. run npm ci to install node packages.
  6. run npm update and update packages indicated by the script or add the packages to package-test.js
  7. run npm run build:nohash and open the index.html file within the /dist folder. You can also build the offline version by running npm run build:offline and opening the index.html file from the /dist folder with your preferred browser

To start the local dev environment, follow everything above and skip step 7

  1. start npm run dev
  2. App should be running in https://localhost:8080

EACCESS issue can be resolved by running: sudo chown -R $(whoami) ~/.npm

For other issues, try the steps shown here: #1182 (comment) by @tomwalton78

For step 7, you may run into a memory heap problem, rerun the script using NODE_OPTIONS=--max-old-space-size=8192 npm run build:nohash or NODE_OPTIONS=--max-old-space-size=8192 npm run build:offline P.S if you want Intercom to be enabled locally, create a .env file and add INTERCOM_ID={yourIntercomKey} otherwise Intercom will be disabled.
