What is ETH ?

Ether is the fuel of the Ethereum network. For every activity and transaction on Ethereum, we have to pay the network fee with Ether. Of course, from a macro perspective, something becomes valuable when people accept its value, and like any other asset, Ether is no exception to this rule. Obviously, the more Ethereum becomes more powerful and the trust in this network increases, theoretically the price of Ethereum will also increase.

Ether started 2017 at $8 and reached its all-time high of $1,400 by January 2018, a little over a year later. With a thumb calculation, it is clear that Ethereum has experienced a price increase of about 17,000% in this one year. From 2019 to 2021, Ether once again continued to peak and reached its highest price of $4,815 on November 9, 2021. Although the crypto market is currently experiencing a dive, experts predict that Ethereum will reach a price of about $10,000 in 2025. But note that this is not a buying signal for you. We recommend studying the crypto market and seeking advice from professionals before any purchase.

Is Ethereum reliable

The official website of Ethereum has defined this project as follows: "Ethereum is a decentralized platform for the execution of smart contracts. There is no possibility of malfunction, censorship, fraud or interference of third parties for the programs that run on this network”. But how is the security of such important and sensitive contents insured? The answer is mining. Mining is one of the common methods of maintaining the security of blockchain networks. According to this algorithm, the block creation process is competitive and anyone who wants to participate in the creation of blocks must solve a complex mathematical equation with the processing power of computers. Therefore, miners (or mining nodes) allocate a large amount of processing power to the network, which is equal to the power of several supercomputers. In this case, if someone wants to attack the network or make a change in the blockchain, they have to have the processing power of more than half of the miners. In other words, in addition to the fact that such processing power is very difficult to obtain if someone has this processing power, it’s more beneficial to mine Ether and gets a large reward instead of attacking the network. As the number of miners increases, the security and safety of the network increases as well, and thus, trust in it will also increase.

After you've bought ETH

Ethereum is a popular blockchain that has been used in various projects. Due to the success of Ethereum, many developers and projects use this chain to build their own products. Smart contracts on Ethereum have been able to bring blockchain technology applications to other levels. Smart contracts allow users to determine their desired conditions and rules. 

In smart contracts, it is possible to include detailed conditions for each contract. This feature has made it possible for Ethereum to host various blockchain-based financial services. Some examples of Ethereum services you can benefit from include: Loaning, Decentralized Insurance, Decentralized Exchanges, Stablecoins, Profit Cultivation, Investing, Computer Games (Betting), and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT).

Frequently asked questions

Yes. You can buy a fraction of an Ethereum. For example, you can buy 0.01 Ethereum.

Officially, ETH has a minimum fractional number called a Wei. Each Wei equals 0.000000000000000001 ETH (10-18). But the minimum amount you are allowed to purchase is dependent upon your exchange’s minimum limit. Our exchange allows a minimum of $10.

The cost of buying Ethereum can vary depending on where, how, and when you purchase it. Typically, the price is determined by supply and demand in the cryptocurrency market. The price can also be influenced by market sentiment and news about the cryptocurrency. To find the current price of ETH, you can either log in to our website and see the real-time price or check our Ethereum Calculator to see the price of Ethereum in your desired currency.

To store Ether and Ethereum-based tokens, you need software or hardware called a “wallet”. A wallet can be considered like a bank account that is used to store, receive and send money.

Ethereum software wallets are free and you can easily install them on mobile phones (Android and iOS) or PCs (Windows, Linux, and Mac). Some wallets are also web-based and can be accessed with internet browsers (such as Chrome). In contrast, hardware wallets, which are more secure, are physically available and must be purchased from reputable stores. It is necessary to take a backup copy of your wallet so that you can recover your funds if the wallet is deleted, the password is forgotten, or the device on which the wallet is installed is damaged.

There are several options to buy ETH such as cryptocurrency exchanges, Peer-to-peer marketplaces, Ethereum brokers, etc. However, cryptocurrency exchanges are among the most popular ways to buy Ethereum for beginners. You can easily buy Ethereum without any buying fees from our exchange.

Since Bitcoin and Ethereum serve two different purposes, it is impossible to say which one is better than the other. However, it is often said among the cryptocurrency community that Bitcoin is better in terms of security and validity, and Ethereum is better in terms of network performance and speed.

There is no right time to buy Ethereum, as the price is highly volatile and can fluctuate rapidly. Some experts believe that the best time to buy is when the price is low and predicted to rise, while others believe in buying and holding for the long term.
It is always recommended to do your own research, understand the risks, and have a clear investment strategy before buying Ethereum or any other cryptocurrency.
