What is Ethereum?

Ethereum is an open source software platform that is similar to the blockchain technology that is used to develop, build and deploy decentralised applications. People assume it is a currency, which it is, bit it is more the technology that platforms can be built upon. Ethereum and Bitcoin share a common technology bit are very different in its purpose. Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer transaction of cash, whilst Ethereum is about running the programming code of decentralised applications.

If you imagine that one function of the internet is to store a massive amount of information – this is the equivalent of assuming that Blockchain is just about transacting currency. The internet has thousands of functions – as does the Blockchain technology and this is what Ethereum is hoping to leverage. Ethereum has opened the possible operations of the programming code of blockchain and therefore delimited its application.

The Ethereum innovation is the Ethereum Virtual Machine – a Turing complete software. This allows anyone to programme no matter the programming language – as long as they have enough time and memory.

One of the major functions of Ethereum is to set up a smart contract. This is computer coding that acts as a mechanism for transacting money, share, content, property, or indeed anything of value where security and privacy is important. The self-operating computer program will automatically execute when specific conditions are met and then the smart contract comes into effect. The blockchain runs without chance that it will suffer from downtime, fraud, interference or censorship – in other words – external control.

Miners of Ether – the bitcoin equivalent in Ethereum – do so to get a tradable currency, like Bitcoin miners – but also to use the token as a means of paying for transaction fees and services on the network. The tokens can also be used to set up an organisation that has no central control but instead is organised by voting rights. The tokens can be used to vote, rather than as a share or an item of currency. Therefore, if a group of people work together then people can buy more say in how this is done by acquiring more tokens.

The reason to run an organisation using tokens as votes are many. It is impossible for a third-party to make changes to the data. The system is based on a process of consensus, so censorship of an opinion is impossible. The cryptography makes it secure – and therefore protected against hacking and fraud. Finally, there is no downtime as the applications can never be switched off.

How is Ethereum’s value determined?

Ethereum’s value is more difficult to assess than the value of other cryptocurrencies. Ethereum’s value cannot really be assessed through the market cap – that is the number of tokens available multiplied by the price. This is because the value of Ethereum is intrinsic. What does this mean? Well, the value of a company needs to be assessed without reference to market value but instead to its fundamental value of future generated income.

As Ethereum uses the idea of the internet as a metaphor for the possibility of the blockchain technology for creating applications, then its value to future investors could be huge. Ethereum’s value must be assessed on how fundamental the technology is to change the way people build organisations and interact. It could even change the way we vote.

Attaching value to utility is difficult. It can be based on scarcity, as in the case of fine art. This is how Ethereum creates its value to some degree. It limits the tokens and creates demands and therefore creates value. This means assessing Ethereum’s value falls back on how many tokens are created and the price of these tokens.

How can you get hold of Ethereum?

The reason people buy Ethereum is naturally different to that of other cryptocurrencies. Ethereum has been used by companies as a means of transacting – as a mechanism of interacting rather than a way to transact money as such. Buying Ether is about functions of industry – making transactions between companies work. The Ether pays for the services and transaction costs that facilitates business.

However, this still means that the Ether has an intrinsic value as a token – or as an item of currency. Therefore, investors have assumed rightly that there is some point in buying the tokens and then selling them to people who want to use them. Therefore, you buy Ether’s the same way you buy other cryptocurrencies. You sign up to a wallet, you purchase other cryptocurrency that can then be exchanged online for an Ether. You would do this because people who are adopting the Ethereum applications would then come to you to buy your Ether to pay for their transactions.

This sounds a lot like you are investing in an idea or a company. However, the truth is you are still buying a currency – as there are no dividends and pay outs other than the hope that the tokens you buy will maintain value because others need them.

What can impact on Ethereum’s price?

Ethereum’s price, like other cryptocurrencies, rose massively last year. It is not at the level of Bitcoin – but Ethereum’s price certainly saw huge spikes. The reason for the rally in price is because the technology has been backed by a large number of corporate entities – including JP Morgan, Microsoft and Intel. As with anything, if there is the backing of trusted organisations, it builds trust and from there promotes confidence. Investors see that the technology is likely to gain strength and desirability and so Ethereum’s price rises.

There is worry, like with other currencies, that the Ethereum price rise will not be sustained. The interest is in open source technology and there is a lot of competition in this field. It is whether Ethereum can continue to be a scarce commodity in a crowded field.
