  • From iamDCinvestor:

    The people who say “there’s no reason for $ETH go up in value, even if Ethereum becomes a global settlement layer and home of DeFi”……remind me a lot of the people who used to say “there’s no reason for AMZN stock to go up in value, because Amazon doesn’t make any money.”

  • From zooko:

    @renprotocol @DefiantNews @0x_Lucas @CamiRusso Prediction: in 10 years, nobody will use BTC on Bitcoin-blockchain — everyone will have migrated to using BTC on Ethereum-blockchain, but this will not increase the value of ETH. BTC will have skyrocketed to be worth $100,000 and ETH will still be worth about $200.

  • From BlockchainNote:

    Wow, all the 100M blocks are gone for the OTC sale, please do not deposit any more Ethereum into the address. I’ll refund the last few transactions and we can open up the sale for the 50M blocks soon. As ever, please check the OTC page and email later today for further info.

What Is Ethereum? | Binance Academy

The Ethereum blockchain is similar to Bitcoin’s, although the data it stores – and the way it stores it – is different….The smart contracts that run on Ethereum are triggered by transactions (either from users or other contracts)….When a user sends a transaction to a contract, every node on the network runs the contract’s code and records the output….An Ethereum node can be anything from a simple mobile phone wallet application to a computer that stores an entire copy of the blockchain.  All nodes work as a communication point somehow, but there are different types of nodes on the Ethereum network….To interface with the Ethereum network in a way that allows you to validate blockchain data independently, you need to run a full node using software like the ones mentioned above.  The software will download blocks from other nodes and verify if the transactions included are correct….This means that anyone can run an Ethereum node and strengthen the network by validating transactions and blocks.  Similarly to Bitcoin, there are a number of businesses that offer plug-n-play Ethereum nodes.
