Ethereum (ETH) Frequently Asked Questions

What is Ethereum?

Sandwich complexity model: the bottom level architecture of Ethereum should be as simple as possible, and the interfaces to Ethereum (including high level programming languages for developers and the user interface for users) should be as easy to understand as possible. Where complexity is inevitable, it should be pushed into the "middle layers" of the protocol, that are not part of the core consensus but are also not seen by end users - high-level-language compilers, argument serialization and deserialization scripts, storage data structure models, the leveldb storage interface and the wire protocol, etc. However, this preference is not absolute. Freedom: users should not be restricted in what they use the Ethereum protocol for, and we should not attempt to preferentially favor or disfavor certain kinds of Ethereum contracts or transactions based on the nature of their purpose. This is similar to the guiding principle behind the concept of "net neutrality". One example of this principle not being followed is the situation in the Bitcoin transaction protocol where use of the blockchain for "off-label" purposes (eg. data storage, meta-protocols) is discouraged, and in some cases explicit quasi-protocol changes (eg. OP_RETURN restriction to 40 bytes) are made to attempt to attack applications using the blockchain in "unauthorized" ways. In Ethereum, we instead strongly favor the approach of setting up transaction fees in such a way as to be roughly incentive-compatible, such that users that use the blockchain in bloat-producing ways internalize the cost of their activities (ie. Pigovian taxation). Generalization: protocol features and opcodes in Ethereum should embody maximally low-level concepts, so that they can be combined in arbitrary ways including ways that may not seem useful today but which may become useful later, and so that a bundle of low-level concepts can be made more efficient by stripping out some of its functionality when it is not necessary. An example of this principle being followed is our choice of a LOG opcode as a way of feeding information to (particularly light client) dapps, as opposed to simply logging all transactions and messages as was internally suggested earlier - the concept of "message" is really the agglomeration of multiple concepts, including "function call" and "event interesting to outside watchers", and it is worth separating the two. Have No Features: as a corollary to generalization, the dev team often refuses to build in even very common high-level use cases as intrinsic parts of the protocol, with the understanding that if people really want to do it they can always create a sub-protocol (eg. ether-backed subcurrency, bitcoin/litecoin/dogecoin sidechain, etc) inside of a contract. An example of this is the lack of a Bitcoin-like "locktime" feature in Ethereum, as such a feature can be simulated via a protocol where users send "signed data packets" and those data packets can be fed into a specialized contract that processes them and performs some corresponding function if the data packet is in some contract-specific sense valid. Non-risk-aversion: the dev team is okay with higher degrees of risk if a risk-increasing change provides very substantial benefits (eg. generalized state transitions, 50x faster block times, consensus efficiency, etc) (Description provided by CryptoCompare)

What exchanges can I buy or trade Ethereum on?

Ethereum can be purchased or sold on the following cryptocurrency exchanges: BitForex, DOBI trade, Huobi, OKEx, Bitfinex, Binance, ABCC, Coinsuper, DigiFinex, FCoin, LBank, Bit-Z, Coinbase Pro, BCEX, Upbit, CoinEx, CoinBene, ZB.COM, TOPBTC, Kraken, Bibox, Bithumb, RightBTC, Rfinex, Allcoin, HitBTC, Simex, IDCM, EXX, Gate.io, OEX, IDAX, LATOKEN, C2CX, Poloniex, Bitstamp, OOOBTC, Gemini, YoBit, Cryptonex, BitMart, Kryptono, UEX, Exrates, CPDAX, Sistemkoin, Coinone, Fatbtc, DragonEX, BiteBTC, Bittrex, CoinTiger, CoinEgg, Livecoin, MBAex, B2BX, Hotbit, BigONE, GOPAX, Exmo, CEX.IO, Neraex, BtcTurk, BtcTrade.im, Allbit, Bitlish, LocalTrade, Korbit, Mercatox, Instant Bitex, Coindeal, Coinsquare, Kucoin, HADAX, Cobinhood, Liquid, Indodax, ChaoEX, OasisDEX, Coinhub, Bancor Network, Vebitcoin, Bitbank, BTC Markets, Bitsane, Liqui, TDAX, BTC-Alpha, IDEX, xBTCe, BX Thailand, DDEX and Covesting.

How do I buy Ethereum?

It is not possible to buy most cryptocurrencies with U.S. dollars. Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and Litecoin can be purchased with U.S. dollars using Coinbase. Once you have purchased Bitcoin using Coinbase, you can then transfer your Bitcoin to an exchange such as Binance or Changelly to purchase other cryptocurrencies.

Where can I get Ethereum wallet?

Ethereum produces its own wallet software that is available for download on its website, which allows you to store Ethereum on your computer. For maximum security, you can store your cryptocurrencies on a dedicated hardware wallet such as a TREZOR wallet or a Ledger Nano S. If you do not wish to buy a hardware wallet, you may consider using a mobile wallet such as Atomic Wallet, Jaxx, or Coinomi to store multiple cryptocurrencies with some added security benefits.

What is the value of Ethereum?

One Ethereum (ETH) is currently worth $148.98 on major cryptocurrency exchanges. You can also exchange one Ethereum for 0.01981788 bitcoin(s) on major exchanges. The value (or market capitalization) of all available Ethereum in U.S. dollars is $16.21 billion.

What hashing algorithm does Ethereum use?

Ethereum is a proof of work (PoW) coin that uses the Ethash algorithm.

How do I mine Ethereum?

Ethereum can be mined using specialized mining software. XMR Stak is a commonly-used mining tool that works for CPU mining and GPU mining with both Nvidia and AMD graphics cards. CCMiner is another popular mining tool for computers with NVIDIA graphics cards. In addition to having mining software, you will need a Ethereum and access to a mining pool that pools your effort with other miners and a wallet to store the Ethereum that you earn from mining. Most cryptocurrencies have multiple publicly-available mining pools that can be found with a simple Google search.

What coins are similar to Ethereum?

The following coins use the same hashing algorithm (Ethash) as Ethereum: USD Coin, Ethereum Classic, Metaverse ETP, Waltonchain, Ether Zero, Callisto Network, Master Contract Token, Bitcoiin, Elementrem, Ellaism and Akroma.

What is the Reddit page for Ethereum?

The official Reddit community (subreddit) for Ethereum is r/ethereum.
