Like other blockchains, Ethereum has its native cryptocurrency called Ether (ETH). ETH is a digital currency. If you’ve heard of Bitcoin, ETH has a lot of common features. It is purely digital and can be sent to anyone in the world, instantly. The ETH money supply is not controlled by any government or company. It is decentralized and limited. The whole world uses ETH to make payments, as a store of value or as a deposit.
But unlike other blockchains, Ethereum can do much more. Ethereum is programmable, which means developers can use it to build new types of applications.
