The cryptocurrency “Ether” is based on the Ethereum blockchain and is often referred to as “Ethereum”. While Bitcoin marked the beginning of cryptocurrencies by establishing secure peer-to-peer payments, Ethereum is developing a secure decentralised operating system for applications that would normally require a centralised middleman. These applications are referred to as “smart contracts”, which are built in line with the ERC20 technical standard. Smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain are used to record and transfer ownership rights, sign contracts of various kinds or process “Initial Coin Offerings” (ICOs).

Invest in Ethereum now

Thanks to its distributed system, Ethereum is currently the most important platform for ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings). The Ethereum network is decentralised, reliable and not controlled by one central entity. Thanks to the technical solutions offered by Ethereum, which enable the automatic execution of contracts, the Ether cryptocurrency, despite its volatility, remains a promising investment opportunity for the future.

Market capitalisation and trends

Ethereum is one of the most successful cryptocurrencies in terms of market capitalisation. ETH’s price development has been remarkable since its introduction. You can buy Ethereum quickly and easily on Bitpanda, where a secure Ethereum wallet service is included. Bitpanda’s Ethereum chart visualises ETH price development and supports traders in making timely decisions. Thanks to the variety of use cases for Ethereum, the cryptocurrency, based on a decentralised Ethereum network, has experienced solid growth over the last few year.

The cryptocurrency ETH has long been the second most popular cryptocurrency globally after Bitcoin. Developers are currently working on the scalability of the Ethereum blockchain to further improve the performance of the Ethereum network. As Europe’s leading trading platform for digital assets, Bitpanda offers both new and experienced users the fastest and safest means to buy Ethereum.

About Ethereum

While Bitcoin invented cryptocurrencies by establishing a secure peer-to-peer payment system, Ethereum is trying to take this concept further. The goal is to create a secure, decentralised operating system for applications, which normally require a centralised middleman. For example, recording and transferring ownership rights, signing contracts of all forms or handling Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs).
