What is Ethereum (ETH)?

Ether, 'Ethereum' or ETH is the second largest cryptocurrency after Bitcoin, that goes under the symbol 'Ξ'. The Ether (ETH) cryptocurrency is the main digital currency used on the Ethereum network, which a decentralised blockchain that lets people create and use smart contracts. Much like Bitcoin, Ether and its network "Ethereum" do not rely on third party organisations, like banks, or government bodies to function.

Ethereum was proposed in 2014 by Vitalik Buterin, a Canadian programmer, and several other co founders. The network and digital currency officially went live the following year in 2015. The main purpose of the Ethereum network is to provide an environment where people can create and use decentralised applications, which are permanent and secure. One of the biggest applications is the decentralised finance application (DeFI). This offers financial services without the need for traditional banking services or brokers and has become a significant application on the Ethereum network.

Unlike Bitcoin, the Ether token is not a unit of currency on a peer-to-peer payment network. Instead Ether tokens purpose is to serve as "fuel" to the Ethereum network, which functions more like a utility token powering the operations of the network. However, Ether (ETH) can still be used for everyday transactions, such as booking airline tickets.


Ethereum was created to provide a platform for people to develop decentralised apps (Dapps) and smart contracts, which allows individuals to securely transact with each other without the need of a trusted authority. Additionally, the network was designed to facilitate decentralised autonomous organisations (DAOs), which have helped create an ecosystem of individuals working together within a democratised and secure environment. As a result, many other popular cryptocurrencies, Dapps and DAOs have been created as a result of Ethereum.
