Can Ether be considered a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin?

Postby anilmr » 14 Jan 2019, 20:39

I feel that Ether can be considered a cryptocurrency because it has value like any other cryptos and you can buy and sell it. Moreover, it also also has utility because it can power Ethereum smart contracts or applications. However, bitcoin does not have the same robust programming capabilities, hence we can call bitcoin to be a cryptocurrency, wheras Ether is both a cryptocurrency as well as an utility token.

If ether is in the market or can be traded in other cryptos then, I would consider it usable crypto. If not, it is just a token with no value like those new cryptos that don't have values.

The difference between them is that Bitcoin has always been in the first place as value, and Ethereum followed it on the second place.

Ethereum is already a cryptocurrency, even the law and rules describing Bitcoins and other cryptocurrency also include Ethereum and other tokens.

I think that Ether and Ethereum are not same. From what I've read Ethereum is a blockchain-based platform whereas Ether is the cryptocurrency which actually is the fuel of this blockchain based platform. But I am still confused. :?

Yes bitcoin is the most popular and widely used crypto with highest market cap. But it is highly volatile too. And, after looking at the recent trends, future doesn't appera to be too bright.

There are a of different coins on the market. Some have more utility than others. Many tokens are on the ethereum platform. I remember when cryptokitties game slowed down the network. It was more than just a game. It proved that more can be done on the technology than just simply sending a payment.
