Ethereum (ETH) History and Overview

Ethereum is a decentralized software platform that uses blockchain technology, commonly referred to as its native cryptocurrency, Ether or Ethereum crypto. Anyone can access and utilize secure digital technology using Ethereum.

With the ETH crypto token, users can pay for work that helps support the Ethereum blockchain. They can also use it to buy services, physical items, or trade it for regular money. Developers like to use ETH to make new and secure technology that makes our everyday lives better.

Bitcoin has a limit of 21 million coins, but Ethereum initially didn't have a maximum supply. Vitalik Buterin decided on this to make a network with endless coins, providing more room for growth and flexibility. Currenlty, the amount of eth in circulating supply is 120.26M coins.

Ethereum first shared its coins during a big sale in 2015, creating about 72 million coins right at the start. People spent these coins in various ways, such as funding Ethereum's development and rewarding the miners who verify transactions.

Ethereum is interesting because developers can make apps which can imrpove various industries. It also uses smart contracts, which are essential for creating decentralized apps (dApps) that people use in IT and finance.

Key points to remember:

  • Ethereum is more than just a digital asset; it's a platform for decentralized applications.
  • In September 2022, Ethereum made a big change to work faster and be better for the environment. It switched from using a proof-of-work method to a proof-of-stake method.
  • As the go-to platform for innovations like DeFi, NFTs, and DAOs, Ethereum is shaping various industries and daily activities.

How Does Ethereum Work?

Vitalik Buterin created Ethereum with the help of Joe Lubin. They first shared their detailed plans in 2014, and Ethereum was up and running in 2015. It differs from Bitcoin because it is built to be flexible and handle growth. As such it is the ideal platform for all kinds of decentralized apps (dApps).

Proof-of-Stake Mechanism

This system uses complex algorithms to agree on network transactions and keep everything secure. To be a validator and help create and check blocks, users need to stake ETH. If they do something wrong, there are penalties to keep everyone honest and the network safe.

Wallets and Transactions

Digital wallets represent ether ownership. Users have private keys (not the currency itself) which they need to make transactions on the Ethereum network.

Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs)

Thanks to Ethereum’s smart contracts, we have DAOs. These offer a clear and democratic way to make decisions in decentralized networks.

Brazil's largest bank, Itaú Unibanco, has made a decisive entry into the crypto space by introducing trading services for $BTC and $ETH. This move is not just a leap for Itaú but a significant indicator of traditional financial institutions acknowledging the potential and demand for cryptocurrency.

Itaú's approach, including custody services but not allowing external wallet transactions initially, reflects a cautious yet strategic entry into the crypto market. The bank's reliance on its robust balance sheet for security reassures investors and showcases the evolving synergy between traditional banking and digital assets.

In the broader market, $BTC performance has been remarkable, especially in its decoupling from traditional asset classes. Currently standing at $41,580.88, Bitcoin's resilience amidst a global market retreat highlights its potential as a distinct investment vehicle. This trend is further emphasized by the diminishing correlation coefficients with global shares and gold, suggesting an emerging independent trajectory for cryptocurrencies.

This divergence is also mirrored in the US stock market, where mega-cap tech stocks have experienced a downturn, while $BTC reaches its highest level since April 2022. This contrast in performance underscores the unique factors driving the crypto market, independent of traditional market sentiments.

Looking ahead, the anticipation surrounding the US's approval of its first spot Bitcoin ETFs adds to the positive sentiment. This, coupled with the potential for dialogue with regulators, indicates a maturing market that is increasingly integrating into the mainstream financial ecosystem.

Blockchain Index

$ETH topped $2,000 Amidst Positive Market Developments for the first time since April. This price surge is fueled by BlackRock's initial steps toward filing for a spot ether ETF. The registration of an iShares Ethereum Trust adds to the positive sentiment, mirroring the previous filing for a $BTC ETF by BlackRock. While Bitcoin experiences a pullback from $38,400, the overall market is buoyed by the prospect of ETF approvals, contributing to short liquidations and crypto prices rising.

When it comes to our structure, we rebalanced Blockchain Index on Friday. $IMX was listed on Iconomi, and it falls under our index parameters. We added it with a position of 0.35%. 

$MKR , $AAVE and $INJ fell out of our parameters, and have been removed from the structure. 

The rest of our structure stays the same with minor adjustments to weights. $BTC and $ETH positions remain the same at 40$ and 30% respectively. The biggest weight rebalance is $BNB with a -0.42% change. Its current weight is 6.93%

Over the weekend, we saw good increases all across the board. We will keep our current structure and rebalance at the start of the next year, keeping true to our schedule and structure.

$BTC is leading the charge, soaring past the $40,000 mark, reaching a high of $41,746, marking a staggering 152% increase this year. This surge is primarily driven by expectations of interest-rate cuts and the prospect of greater demand from the exchange-traded funds (ETF) sector.

The optimism isn't limited to Bitcoin alone. $ETH also made significant gains, breaking past the $2,200 level. This upward trend in Ethereum is supported by positive technical indicators and a bullish market sentiment, suggesting potential for further gains.

@ICONOMI I think many of us are interested to know what is happening with our Luna Classic holdings?

3 Dec, 2023

$BTC hits $40,000 and $ETH breaks above $2,200 for a new 19-month high. Significant breakout which should be a major tailwind for the cryptocurrency market. 🐂 Our $RUNE continues to be the top performer among Top 100 cryptocurrencies. With $BTC halving in 5 months and ETF approval likely in January 2024 things can get interesting in the next couple of weeks. 🍪
