Prospective investors must keep in attention that cryptos are high-risk investments.

What is Ethereum? 

Ethereum is a system originated in 2015 by Russian-born Canadian Vitalik Buterin, who also took part in Bitcoin Magazine as a youth and had printed the white paper on it two years prior. 


Like Bitcoin, presently with a market capitalization of over £452.4billion, Ethereum is decentralized, so it does not need a central bank or financial institution to concern it.
