  • Ethereum scalling dissection September 26, 2020
    I am trying to figure out how will ethereum scaling play out and what I got wrong. POS won't make much difference, its a bit more optimized then POW, but basically we get the same scaling Beacon chain as the first phase of 2.0 is just for bootstrapping later phases and also doesn't change much […]
  • faucet error - Is there an alternative that works? September 26, 2020
    Received the 'insufficient funds for gas * price + value' error on Is there an alternative that works? Just trying to play around with rinkeby. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. 🙂 submitted by /u/Midwest_Parrothead [link] [comments]
  • Where are staking rewards going to come from in early ETH 2.0? September 26, 2020
    This is a question I haven‘t seen addressed yet. There won‘t be any many transactions generating fees in phase 0, but stakers will receive significant rewards. At the same time we still have POW miners getting paid on the old chain as well and I haven‘t seen anything about them getting their rewards cut with […]

What Is Ethereum?

It is a decentralized network built in an open source to enable users send and receive currency and make use of its’ platform to design and develop decentralized Apps. As a P2P network, it can allow systems to interact securely with a multi-functional blockchain. The ethereum platform runs on smart contracts without any downtime, or interference from third-party. Ethereum makes it easy to create smart contracts, code that developers can tap and easily deploy for a range of applications. Vitalik Buterin who is a developer designed Ethereum protocols to enable developers to develop a diversity of apps that bitcoin could not offer.

Ethereum is not just about currency but an API platform you can achieve all you want to achieve.

Ethereum foundation based in Switzerland oversees the affairs of Ethereum network.


Vitalik Buterin is the CEO who developed the ethereum protocol and co-founded by Dr Gavin Wood who wrote the ethereum yellow paper.MR. Joseph Lubin was also one of the co-founders.


  • You can store valuable assets.

  • It is used to purchase other currencies.

Mining Ethereum

Ethereum network can be mined using two methods. They are: CPU/GPU and Mining pool.

CPU/GPU Mining: CPU/GPU is a computer that has a graphical interface. It uses Proof of Work(PoW) to mine and to secure both the transaction records and the rewards. The Proof of Work(PoW} is SHA-256 algorithm. The GPU is more efficient and faster than the CPU. Both delay a lot in recording the transactions to the blockchain, and this also delays rewards.                    The advantage CPU/GPU mining has over others is that it gives better privacy.             Ethereum does not support ASIC mining.                                                                                        Please note that one needs to disable antivirus to allow mining take place.

Mining pool: This method involves forming a group and putting resources together. Once a computational problem is solved, new blocks added to the blockchain and the transaction records updated, the reward will be given to the pool. The ether coins being given as a reward will be shared amongst the members of the group based on the contribution.


Ethereum network is one of the promising cryptocurrency investments of 21st century. Ether as a token is one the top three valued asset in the crypto market with a market capitalization of $27billion.It has achieved 40% of what bitcoin has achieved and is still making efforts to bridge the gap.

In January,2017,ether was sold at $8 but in November,2017,it has risen to $400.This is an estimated growth of 1200%.

Ethereum is one investment that, no serious investor should overlook.


Cryptocurrency investment is speculative, and it involves unquantifiable risks – the market is full of uncertainty, susceptible to attack and capital loss, and sensitive to secondary issues, time may do not permit to mention here.
