What is Ethereum (ETH)

Ethereum was created to address some of the transactional weakness of Bitcoin. Where as Bitcoin is a great holder of value, Ethereum is an improved blockchain that offers transaction speed, as well as some automated smarts called ‘smart contracts’ or contract triggers.

Ethereum has some real world financial capability that supports two parties being able to transact without a middle man, but what Ethereum does that is better than Bitcoin, is that it allows such transactions to occur automatically, or against specific rules.

So for example, if you entered into an Ethereum smart contract, you could have arranged to be paid automatically when a trigger even occurs. This allows rules to be setup around automated payments, negating the need for a middle-man process to manage the payment. Such smart contracts have enormous application in the real world in removing transactional delays that occur in current financial processes.

What is the difference between trading Ethereum CFDs and buying Ethereum?

There are two main ways to buy and trade Ethereum:

  • Using traditional exchanges, you can buy Ethereum in the hope of selling it at a profit. Depositing into exchanges is notoriously difficult with deposit methods being difficult and cumbersome. The buying process is also complex, and requires you to buy Ethereum coins at market value, and you only make a profit when you sell and someone else buys your coin from you. In a falling market, this strategy may fail if you can't sell your coins.
  • Trading with easyMarkets CFDs allows you to purchase an Ethereum market position at market value, without actually owning the coin. Instead of having to sell your coin to make a profit, you can simply close your position effective immediately. A buyer of your coin is not required, and you can walk away with your profits in seconds, rather than waiting for a buyer to purchase.
