Ethereum is the best coin after Bitcoin?

Featured Comment

Ethereum is an open-source, public, blockchain-based distributed computing platform and operating system featuring smart contract (scripting) functionality.[3]Ether is a cryptocurrency whose blockchain is generated by the Ethereum platform. Ether can be transferred between accounts and used to compensate participant mining nodes for computations performed.[4] Ethereum provides a decentralized Turing-completevirtual machine, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which can execute scripts using an international network of public nodes. "Gas", an internal transaction pricing mechanism, is used to mitigate spam and allocate resources on the network.

Ethereum was proposed in late 2013 by Vitalik Buterin, a cryptocurrency researcher and programmer. Development was funded by an online crowdsale that took place between July and August 2014. [6] The system went live on 30 July 2015, with 11.9 million coins "premined" for the crowdsale.[7] This accounts for approximately 13 percent of the total circulating supply.

At the time of the public announcement of the project in January 2014, the core Ether project development team consisted of Vitalik Buterin, Anthony Di Lorio, Mihai Alisie, and Charles Hoskinson. The main goal of the project was to develop a new platform with a more general scripting language.

Under Ethereum Switzerland GmbH (EthSuisse), the formal development of the project began in early 2014. The Ethereum Foundation (Stiftung Ethereum), a Swiss-based non-profit organization, was subsequently created as well for the development of the project.

In 2016, as a result of the collapse of The DAO project, Ethereum was split into two separate blockchains – the new separate version became Ethereum (ETH), and the original continued as Ethereum Classic (ETC).The value of the Ethereum currency grew over 13,000 percent in 2017.


So Guys How many Ethereums are you holding now ? Are you rich? Or how you gonna invest ?
