What is Ethereum (ETH)?

The Ethereum blockchain was the first blockchain to make smart-contracts a core feature of the network. Because these smart-contracts are logical statements (if this, then that), software developers can build applications using Ethereum’s technology. The combination of payments & smart-contracts, as well as its long history providing smart contracts have made Ethereum not only a preferred tool of dApp developers but also the foundation of decentralized finance.

Cryptohunt's Opinion

Our take on Ethereum

Ethereum's genius is that it took Bitcoin’s concept of digital money and added ownership of digital property as well as automated money movement. It created a true digital economy, uninterrupted by government legislation or corporate influence. This digital economy allows individuals to transact directly with one another, all in a single, immediate transaction. We have mixed feelings about Ethereum. In our opinion, it is the strongest contender in the race to take it all thanks to its functionality and adoption. But it has fundamental flaws that make that unusable at scale in its current iteration: Fees are through the roof, and with only 15 transactions per second, it's hard to imagine a world powered by Ethereum. Competitors are already nibbing at its heels... The question is if Ethereum can change fast enough or if it'll be overtaken.

I really think that Etherium will have a huge impact after moving from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake. Besides that I'm really into sustaintabilty and after the merge I can 100% identify with this.

I know people will start yelling at me, but I am not so bullish on Ethereum anymore. It is so expensive to transact that it has become the blockchain for rich people trading Apes. That's all fine for them, but it cultivates a culture of caring mostly about the money. There are other projects out there who truly want to make a difference, for everyone. Sure - BIG changes are supposed to come. But those have taken a long time. Ethereum is an outdated elephant, unable to adjust quickly. Long term, I think it'll fade away.
