About ETH

Ethereum as a platform

Ethereum is an open-source, public, blockchain-based distributed computing platform featuring smart contract (scripting) functionality. It provides a decentralized virtual machine, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM).

ETC or ETH “Classic” is worth steadily about 10% of ETH and it is the underlying asset of the proposed Ethereum ETF.

ETH vs BTC

Ethereum is primarily meant as a smart contract and DApp platform but with ZoE there is also transactional privacy implemented. Confirmation times are much faster than on the Bitcoin blockchain.
