Buying your Ethereum on Beaxy

Started in 2015, Ethereum is the second-largest cryptocurrency and is a distributed public blockchain network. It is programmable meaning developers can build and deploy decentralized applications on the Ethereum network. The Ethereum network has a native token, ETH, which serves as a means of payment for transactions.

Known as the “decentralized platform for money”, decentralized financial applications, or DeFi, have been built on the Ethereum network enabling a user to borrow, lend or invest their digital assets. Additionally, Ethereum can be used to build Decentralized Autonomous Organisations, or DAO’s. The Ethereum network is also used as a platform to launch digital tokens. The project is seeking to expand its scalability by implementing a proof-of-stake consensus algorithm.

History:

Vitalik Buterin got the idea for Ethereum in 2013, after failed attempts to convince the Bitcoin core team to expand Bitcoin’s capabilities. Specifically, Vitalik sought to make a digital currency that was Turing complete. The first Ethereum white paper was released later on in 2013. In it, Vitalik laid out his plans for a blockchain protocol that could execute smart contracts and contain an infrastructure that supports the creation and maintenance of decentralized applications (dApps). By 2014, the Ethereum Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports Ethereum’s research and development, had been created. The Ethereum Foundation still provides the majority of funding to research teams that build on the Ethereum platform.
