How to buy Ethereum in Brazil
Is ETH a good investment in Brazil?
In its simplest definition, Ethereum is an open infrastructure based on blockchain technology on which decentralized computer programs can be run. The decentralization of Ethereum means that this system does not belong to anyone alone and it is not controlled by one or more specific people. Everyone can own this network and everyone can play a role in controlling it. Thanks to Ethereum's distributed and decentralized structure, once a program is implemented on the Ethereum network, it cannot be stopped or manipulated, even if the creator wants to.
Among the members of the digital currency community, the digital currency of the Ethereum network is also called Ethereum or Ether. Ether, like Bitcoin, is a digital currency that can easily transfer value. However, Ether's purpose is slightly different from Bitcoin's. This digital currency was created to pay for fees and as an incentive for contributors to continue working with Ethereum. Who would be willing to work as a miner or contributor to the network if Ether was not the key asset? This is why Ether is also called "the fuel of the Ethereum network". If Bitcoin is "digital gold", Ether is "digital oil".
