Ethereum's (ETH) price today is $1278.99 USD. Ethereum's current price is now 0.8% higher than yesterday. A total of $40,786,475,433.62 in Ethereum (ETH) was traded globally across all exchanges in the past 24 hours, which is 2% more than the previous 24 hours.
After Bitcoin, Ethereum is the second largest cryptocurrency platform. Launched in July of 2015, Ethereum is the largest and most well-established, open-ended decentralized software platform. It is also known as a smart contract platform that enables developers to build decentralized applications (DApps) on its blockchain. These decentralized applications (or "dapps") gain the benefits of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.
Ethereum has a native cryptocurrency called Ether (ETH). ETH is digital money like Bitcoin. ETH has many of the same features. It is purely digital, and can be sent to anyone anywhere in the world instantly.
Ethereum is supported in part by the Ethereum Foundation, a non-profit that is part of the larger Ethereum ecosystem including enterprise Ethereum consortiums like the Ethereum Enterprise Alliance.
Vitalik Buterin first conceptualized Ethereum in 2013 with the idea of developing an open-source blockchain platform different from Bitcoin (BTC), thus pioneering smart contracts.
A full Ethereum node is composed of three essential parts
On the Ethereum blockchain, a smart contract behaves like a self-operating computer program that automatically executes when specific conditions are met. Blockchain allows smart contracts' code to be run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third-party interference.
The Ethereum network went live on July 30, 2015, with 73 million Ether pre-mined.
Cryptocurrency mining is a process of solving complex mathematical problems. Ethereum mining is the process of maintaining the Ethereum ledger through solving complex mathematical problems. Unlike Bitcoin mining, Ethereum mining can be done with a Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) only.
Ethereum mining works when miners use their computational power to solve a mathematical problem. The first miner to successfully solve the problem (find the hash) then broadcasts that the block has been mined to the entire Ethereum network for other nodes to validate and add the block to the blockchain. This verification process is called proof of work.
There are 3 ways to mine Ethereum
Ethereum mining is based on the Ethash algorithm, and ETH miners originally received a block reward of 5 ETH per block when the network first went live. In the end of 2017, the Byzantine hard fork of the Ethereum blockchain lowered the block rewards from 5 ETH to 3 ETH. In early 2019, the reward was again lowered to 2 ETH in what is known as "the thirdening."
The Ethereum blockchain was supposed to migrate from a PoW system to the less energy-investive proof-of-stake system (PoS) system in January 2020, but the deadline was not met. A switch to PoS and the release of Ethereum 2.0 is still expected for later in 2020.
Ethereum transactions are called "gas" and they are responsible for powering operations on the entire network, meaning you have to spend your "gas" (Ether) in order to make changes to the blockchain. Ethereum also has a Turing complete internal code.
Ethereum is a platform based on blockchain technology that enables developers to build and deploy applications, without any central authority. Ethereum aims to create censorship resistant, hack-proof, decentralized networks.
Ether, the native currency of the Ethereum blockchain, is also used as digital money and can be sent to anyone in the world instantly. Ether can be used as a form of payment or a store of value.
