The Ethereum Thread
#1
I have noticed some interest with respect to Ethereum in that many (including myself) see it as the alternative to Bitcoin and potentially even a better investment due to interest from the big boys (such as Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, etc).

Anything goes here with Ethereum. This will be the official thread for anything related to Ethereum. 

What is Ethereum?

Ethereum is a cutting edge blockchain-based distributed computing platform, featuring smart contract functionality. It provides a decentralized virtual machine, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), that can execute peer-to-peer contracts using a crypto-fuel called Ether.

I used your tutorial and bought 2 ethereums already in the green.

You guys genuinely think ethereum will match bitcoin?

Good thread!

This price seems to be booming. I'll admit I'm a bitcoin believer, but there is no doubt that ethereum will make a big impact in how we perceive cryptocurreincies.

Definitely, I can see a lot more practical uses for the smart contracts. Don't get me wrong bitcoin will go much much higher including Ethereum.

Imagine what will happen to the ether price when Microsoft announces you now need to pay your windows 10 subscription using ether.

They are actively working on making it more accessible to the public and no doubt with JP Morgan Chase involved there will be a "legit" credit/debit card for ether available soon. 

It will start in the US and then flow down to the rest of the world.

^Speculation of course.

Well, being a novice, I took the plunge and bought 1 Ethereum .... now we wait and see. Almost in the green already in a few minutes.

Been monitoring Ethereum for the past few weeks, been a rollercoaster thusfar.

Peaking at around $225 a week ago, then dropping to $125 and now back to almost $225

Scary stuff

Not scary, exciting Smile

Huobi went live today; 0.01% charge for first 3 days and 0.05% for the next 2 weeks I think?

OKCoin is going live tomorrow.

That makes 2/3 largest exchanges in China making ETH available.

Come on baby.

Am also hopeful that this will increase the value of ETH, however nothing much has happened so far.

True, BTC however has shot up. ETH has fallen from 10% of BTC value to 9.5%.

Hey everyone. I've developed quite an interest for cryptocurrencies lately. The only downfall I've noticed is the extremely high mining fees (especially in relation to small value transactions). Has anyone else experienced this?

I tried to buy some Ether on Jaxx for about R120 (in bitcoins) only to see that about a third would go to mining fees Sad

That's crazy, look under Jaxx settings page, then BTC Mining Fees and select low.

By default it's on normal if I'm not mistaken.
