Please note: like most trading venues, we display the current mid-market rates in our price charts. When you trade, you get the current bid or ask price depending on whether you are buying or selling. There is always a slight difference between the mid-market and the current bid or ask prices. This is a natural result of how Exchange order books work.
Digital currencies are very high risk. Do not invest money you can’t afford to lose. Please consider the suitability of crypto for your individual position before trading.
About Ethereum (ETH)
Ethereum is a decentralised open-source blockchain with smart-contract capabilities. Ether is the cryptocurrency generated by Ethereum miners as a reward for computations performed to secure the blockchain.
The project’s goal is to democratise the internet by creating a ‘world computer’. Its aim is to replace the traditional model of servers or clouds hosting data with a new premise – ‘nodes’ provided by volunteers. The creators of Ethereum aim to introduce an alternative solution for data and apps that isn’t dependent on big technology firms.
