Ethereum vs Bitcoin
Ethereum vs Bitcoin describes the main differences between the networks and the currencies. Ethereum is a decentralized and blockchain-based platform with many aspects. It features smart contracts, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) and it uses its currency called Ether for peer-to-peer contracts. On Ethereum you can create digital tokens that can represent virtual shares, assets, proof of membership and other things. The smart contracts are compatible with any wallet or any exchange that use a standard coin API. One feature of Ethereum is that it can replace crowdfunding sites. It´s possible to set up a contract or application and seek pledges from the community. The funds will be released back to the contributors if the goal is not met, or go on to the project if it is successful.
Bitcoin’s average block time is about 10 minutes, while Ethereum’s aims to be 12 seconds. Ethereum´s hashing algorithm, Ethash, encourages decentralized mining by individuals, rather than the use of more centralized ASICs as with Bitcoin. Also, transaction costs are different. In Ethereum, it is called Gas, and the costing of transactions depends on their storage needs, complexity and bandwidth usage. In Bitcoin, the transactions are limited by the block size and they compete equally with each other.
