How does Ethereum make money?

Ether. Developers have to pay a fee to the Ethereum network to create new tokens or decentralized apps on the network. They make these payments in ether, Ethereum’s native currency. This fee is also known as “gas,” according to Noble.

Bitcoin requires a scripting language for constructing decentralized apps, according to Vitalik Buterin, a programmer and co-founder of Bitcoin Magazine. After failing to win consensus in the community, Vitalik began work on Ethereum, a new blockchain-based distributed computing platform with smart contract scripting capabilities.


Smart contracts are Ethereum-based programs or scripts that can be used to make transactions if specific circumstances are met. Smart contracts are written in a specific programming language and then compiled into bytecode, which is then executed by a decentralized Turing-complete virtual machine called the Ethereum virtual machine (EVM) can then read and execute.

Apps that operate on the Ethereum blockchain can also be created and published by developers. DApps (decentralized applications) are what these programs are known as, and there are currently hundreds of them running on the Ethereum blockchain, including social media networks, gaming apps, and financial exchanges.

Ether is Ethereum’s cryptocurrency, which can be moved between accounts and used to pay for the processing power necessary to execute smart contracts.

Blockchain technology is garnering a lot of public attention these days, and it’s already being used in a lot of different applications, not just cryptocurrency. Don’t forget to check out our other videos on ShivX Academy for additional information on blockchain and other interesting topics.
