About Ethereum

Ethereum is a decentralized computing platform that uses ETH (also called Ether) to pay transaction fees (or “gas”). Developers can use Ethereum to run decentralized applications (dApps) and issue new crypto assets, known as Ethereum tokens.

Ethereum (ETH) is a decentralized, open-source blockchain that aims to become a global platform for decentralized applications and strives to enable users worldwide to write and run software resistant to censorship, downtime, and fraud. As the nonprofit Ethereum Foundation puts it, it "Is for more than payments. It's a marketplace of financial services, games, and apps that can't steal your data or censor you." Ethereum is the second-biggest cryptocurrency by market cap after Bitcoin as of 2023 and a decentralized computing platform that can run a wide variety of applications — including a universe of decentralized finance (or DeFi) apps and services. This platform is powered by its native cryptocurrency, Ether, which is used within the Ethereum network for various operations, making it an integral part of the system.

Market update: Ethereum is gaining momentum ahead of a looming ETF decision.

Market update: Ethereum is gaining momentum ahead of a looming ETF decision.

COINBASE BYTES • FEB 14, 2024

For the first time in two years, bitcoin broke the $50,000 mark on Monday as it recovered from last month’s dip. ETH also rallied in recent weeks, with the token up more than 20% since January lows and breaking past the $2,700 price level on Wednesday for the first time since May 2022.
    Rumors of an ETH ETF could boost Ethereum in the first half of 2024. Franklin Templeton, the finance giant with more than $1 trillion in assets under management, just filed an application for a spot ETH ETF with the SEC, which is already reviewing applications from firms like BlackRock, Ark Invest, and Invesco. The agency is obligated to make a final decision on the first wave of applications by May 23. 
    Ethereum is seeing rising onchain activity. Ethereum is seeing its seven-day moving average of daily transaction volume up 15% since the start of this month, to $3.58 billion. Trade volume of NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain has also hit the highest point in almost a year.
ETH update: ETH rallies above $3,000 as hopes for ETF grow

ETH update: ETH rallies above $3,000 as hopes for ETF grow

COINBASE BYTES • FEB 28, 2024

ETH hit $3,000 for the first time since 2022, and the optimism over spot ETFs and blockchain upgrades could be what's driving the rally. Let’s dig in.
    Spot ETH ETF hopes are rising. Finance heavyweights including BlackRock, Franklin Templeton, Ark Invest, and Invesco are seeking SEC approval for spot ETH ETFs. The SEC is obligated to make a decision on some of those applications by May 23.
    ETH ETFs may be especially appealing to Wall Street. Some analysts believe that ETH has potential to become a favorite among institutional investors, reports CoinDesk. ETH’s staking mechanism, for example, could pave the way for new types of ETFs where yield is paid out to shareholders.
    ETH’s user activity is heating up. As ETH’s price surges, so are transactions on its blockchain — a sign that users are actively engaging with applications across the Ethereum ecosystem.
    A major Ethereum upgrade could slash fees. Traders are also awaiting ETH’s forthcoming Dencun upgrade, which is currently planned for mid-March. Analysts estimate the upgrade could help make transactions cheaper by around 50 to 90 percent.
