Mission

Ethereum was created to allow for the development of smart contracts and decentralized apps (dapps). Ethereum is described as the “world’s programmable blockchain” and acts as a programmable network for decentralized financial (Defi) services, games and dapps. Ethereum charges users fees in order to use dapps, these fees are termed as “gas” and vary depending on the computational energy required for the application. Most other cryptocurrencies are built on the existing Ethereum blockchain. Ethereum is also used to establish decentralized autonomous organizations(DAOs) allowing individuals to work together on projects in a fully democratized, secured environment

Team

Vitalik Buterin
Vitalik Buterin
Founder

The development of Ethereum was headed by Russian-Canadian, Vitalik Buterin, a programmer and co-founder of Bitcoin Magazine. Buterin believes that Bitcoin could be further improved through the incorporation of a scripting language, allowing it to be used for application development. Buterin has also held a position with Ledger, a peer-reviewed scholarly journal that publishes research articles on cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. He has also contributed as a developer to a number of open-source software projects, including Darkwallet by Cody Wilson, Bitcoin Python libraries and the cryptocurrency marketplace site, Egora.

The extensive number of uses for ETH as well as the lower price of the cryptocurrency in comparison to Bitcoin make it an attractive cryptocurrency for traders. ETH can be traded on the most widely used cryptocurrency trading platforms.

Paying for dapps

Paying for dapps

Ethereum is used as the blockchain software platform for developers to create decentralized applications (dapps) that be used by the public. Their work is based on smart contracts created by the network which allow a function to be executed when its requirements are met. In order to use a dapp, Ethereum requires the user to pay a fee which is termed “gas”.

Earn ETH via Staking

Earn ETH via Staking

The launch of the Beacon Chain means the introduction of proof of stake protocol to the Ethereum platform. This allows an individual to become a validator and help secure the network and earn rewards in the process. As a validator you’ll be responsible for storing data, processing transactions, and adding new blocks to the blockchain. This will keep Ethereum secure for everyone and earn you new ETH in the process.

Buying NFTs

Buying NFTs

Through the utilization of smart contracts, ETH can be exchanged for Ethereum-based assets. Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) represent ownership of a unique item such as a digital artwork or collectible. Whilst they are primarily used to represent digital items, they can also correspond to unique physical items. Ethereum’s smart contracts can ensure that the exchange of NFTs for cryptocurrency can occur securely. The system also ensures that creation, as well as ownership of the NFT, is verifiable and each token is minted with a unique identifier.

FAQs

How does ETH have value?

Ethereum’s open-source blockchain and smart contract functionality is very attractive for developers to build upon. This subsequently leads to high amounts of gas required for smart contracts to be executed, providing the demand for miners to supply. The smart contract functionality also allows for transactions to occur for NFTs.
