Similar in many ways to bitcoin, Ethereum is a cryptocurrency that can be used to make payments, to trade, and as a digital store of value. The platform is entirely digital and decentralized, and can be accessed by anyone around the world with an Internet connection. Along with its older sibling bitcoin, Ethereum is also accepted by an increasing number of stock CFD & forex brokers as a funding method for trading accounts.
Ethereum transactions are generally cheap, and compares particularly well with traditional bank transfers when we talk about international transactions. Cryptocurrencies like Ethereum also come with the extra advantage that they cannot be censored or blocked in any way, making them a nice alternative for traders in countries with capital controls or other restrictions.
