How to buy Ethereum in Slovakia
Is ETH a good investment in Slovakia?
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".

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.
