You’ve heard of Ethereum, it’s consistently one of the top 3 cryptocurrencies on the market, and now you want to know how to buy Ethereum with your credit card in 2019. You’ve come to the right place. Let’s get started with some basics.
At its simplest, Ethereum is platform based on blockchain technology that allows the development of decentralised apps (dApps). Similar to Bitcoin in that it has a tradable coin, its purpose and capabilities change. Ether, the coin on the Ethereum platform, works in the same way as other cryptocurrencies, but it is also the fuel behind the network, meaning developers need to pay Ether for code execution.
We cannot mention Ethereum without mentioning smart contracts. These applications facilitate the exchange of money, content, property or anything of value. Ethereum revolutionised smart contracts by allowing any developers to create their own. You can read our full article covering that here.
More than just a cryptocurrency, Ethereum is more of an app store, allowing developers to make any apps they want to on one decentralised platform.
