Buy Ethereum quickly and safely – Coinhouse
Why buy Ethereum?
Ethereum is the second-largest public blockchain in terms of value, and the first in terms of usage. Like Bitcoin, Ethereum operates on what is known as a public blockchain: a global distributed network, uncensored, open to all, and without any central authority. The fundamental difference with Bitcoin is the ability to create applications on Ethereum, which run and are stored on the blockchain itself, which is the origin of decentralized finance (DeFi), for example.

Should you buy Ether?
The Ethereum blockchain allows users to create smart contracts which are becoming increasingly useful for individuals and businesses. Its unit of account is Ether which is used as the payment method for these contracts. Ether’s ticker on exchanges is ETH. This cryptocurrency has very quickly become the second largest crypto on the planet; its market cap has varied between €200 billion and €500 billion since early 2021.
Thanks to the ability to build applications onto the Ethereum platform, it is possible to lend, borrow, trade and even verify property titles without having to go through a central authority. It is also possible to create new cryptocurrencies, which are called tokens. All this makes Ethereum the most diversified and active blockchain in the crypto ecosystem.
Ethereum has attracted a large number of investors because it is versatile, quickly processes transactions and is seen as the bedrock of decentralised finance thanks to smart contracts, non-fungible tokens and the registration of property titles. Its popularity has grown not just among crypto investors but also among large companies which are embarking on more and more projects on the platform – a tailwind for its market cap and a reason to buy Ether.
At the start of 2020, Ether had a price of just over €100. A year later, its price had risen to €1,000 and then doubled by the start of 2022. Although its price has swung wildly up and down, it has not stopped climbing from one year to the next. Some experts expect it to hit €10,000 by 2025 and then €30,000 around 2030.
