What is Ethereum?
Ethereum is a global software platform powered by a decentralised, open-source blockchain. It is designed to be scalable, secure, and sustainable. Commonly known as a “world computer”, Ethereum is essentially “programmable money”.
Ether (ETH) is the native currency of the Ethereum blockchain and is used as a utility token to pay gas fees when processing transactions on the network. As a digital asset, ETH is also a store of value and is used as a form of payment. Ethereum (ETH) is the second-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalisation and is the most widely used blockchain in the world.
Ethereum is a game-changer. The most revolutionary feature of Ethereum is its native support for smart contracts. Ethereum’s founders’ intent was simple: to develop a platform where anyone can create and host their own decentralised applications (dApps). Developers can build dApps on Ethereum and write and execute smart contracts to run them. These digital contracts can be used to exchange value and represent the transfer of ownership of assets over the blockchain, like cryptocurrencies and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). Smart contracts are a powerful tool that gives Ethereum a real-world use case. To invest in Ethereum you can buy ETH from Independent Reserve.
The Ethereum vision is to create a digital future for the world. Its cause is noble. Its mission: “grow Ethereum until it's powerful enough to help all of humanity.”
