So you can feel privileged that you’re receiving the knowledge on everything you need to know about Ethereum from the best source.
Before I jump into everything about Ethereum, and why you should be giving some of your attention to this emerging cryptocurrency, I want to give you an introduction to me. So who I am, and why I’m going to be the instructor who’s taking you through this course.
So here comes a key lecture for this section which is all about introducing you to this course, and Ethereum. So why exactly should you even be the slightest interested in embracing Ethereum? Let me get the value of Ethereum out the way, ready? So at the time of creating this course, Ethereums value is up between 10-20x in 2016 so far. A pretty big jump. Big enough to make the second most valuable cryptocurrency. So that’s why you should be interested in the financial side.
I was confident that would get your attention!
I want you to be aware of what you’ll achieve by the end of this course, because you’ll achieve a lot more than just, understanding what Ethereum is. So let me explain in detail right now, section by section as this course is laid structured.
So in section two of this course I want to explain what Ethereum is, I don’t want to progress any further in the course without you understanding what Ethereum is, because without understanding it, it’ll make everything else we cover that bit harder to grasp and utilize. So that’s section two.
I always like to ensure those who enroll on my courses get a lot more than just what I deliver through the lectures, I want them to have something they gain as a reward for completing the course on top of everything they’ve learnt.
So in order to get your Ethereum from me, it will be 0.01 Ethereum, you must complete the course, of course be a paying students which you are, but also complete the course. You can then send me your Ethereum wallet address in the course discussion board, and I will get this sent out to you, generally within 24-48 hours.
In this lecture I really want to just explain Ethereum to you in the simplest possible way, the reason I want to do this now is because as we work through the following lectures and sections, by having this simple understanding you’ll be able to understand what I’m actually talking about and how that plays a role in the Ethereum universe.
Just so you’re aware, in this lecture I want to discuss the general world of Ethereum so you clearly understand it, then in the next lecture and those following we’ll get more technical and get into the nitty gritty of using the cryptocurrency.
Let’s have a little history lesson in this lecture, because to truly understand anything I think you need to understand where it has come from, so that’s what we’re going to do here.
Now in 2013, late 2013, the whitepaper for Ethereum came along, which was published by Ethereums founder Vitalik Buterin, hope I pronounced his name correctly, please do correct me if not. His goal with this project, was to build decentralized applications.
So in this lecture I want to show you who is actually behind the Ethereum project, because to allow you to trust it you need to know the people who launched this project, but remember as a cryptocurrency it’s a community based initiative as well. So the project is only as good as the community members.
Remember now that Ethereum refers to the blockchain technology, and Ether refers to the currency. However, for the purposes of this course, and how the majority of people phrase it they mention Ethereum as a whole. So Ethereum as the blockchain technology and the currency. I just want you to remember that, so if anyone quiz’s you, you can say, yes, Ether is the currency, and Ethereum is the blockchain technology. But let’s get onto this lecture where I’m going to show you just how widely used Ethereum is, so not Ether, Ethereum, Ether’s for the next lecture.
So here are, the lecture which is all about how much Ethereum, well Ether is worth. As you can see this figure here show the current supply of Ether, now to be honest there isn’t a cap of 21 million or any cap for that matter like there is for Bitcoin. However, there is a limit on how many new Ethers can be mined each year.
So is Ether, Ethereum, safe to use as a cryptocurrency? That’s the question isn’t it. Talking from my experience as a user I’ve not had any theft issues, or any other issues that would make me stop using Ethereum yet. So from my experience I would recommend it.
But as with anything new, you shouldn’t hedge everything you have on it and use it over everything else, be cautious, yes, but also be an opportunist and see where the opportunity. I’ll go into investing in Ether later, but you should only ever invest as much as you can lose, because let’s face it cryptocurrencies are risky, but they also provide massive opportunity.
Welcome to this section of the course where I’m going to help you understand how Ethereum works, because before we start using it I want you to be aware of how it actually operates, this way you will understand the processes involved, and everything else surrounding the Ethereum eco-system. So that’s what we’re going to cover in this section.
To start with in this section, I want to perhaps, let’s say, get a little technical, by explaining how Ethereum works. Because it’s part cryptocurrency, part technological advancement.
So for this lecture I just want to show you how easy an Ethereum transaction can be, which of course helps knock down barriers to entry for many people. I’m not one for liking complicated programs, I like it made simple. Now the range of Ethereum wallets isn’t particularly vast at the moment, I will go into this later, and discuss each wallet in depth with you and as to which you should use.
In this section I want to compare both Ethereum and Bitcoin head on head for you, because a lot of people will be thinking, what is the actual difference between them both. So in this lecture I just want to briefly touch on Bitcoins unique points, in another words its selling points. What makes Bitcoin so special. Now if you’re a student on my other Bitcoin courses you will already know these, so I won’t go in-depth, I’ll just re-cap over them for you, so when we discuss Ethereums selling points you can tell the difference.
Now I want to keep this lecture short, and to the point, because I don’t want to overcomplicate anything, that’s not what I’m here to do. I’m here to help you grasp Ethereum in the simplest possible way. So I’m going to discuss Ethereums selling points with you as to why it could potentially be a rival to Bitcoin as a cryptocurrency.
In this lecture I want to discuss the highly debated question, will Ethereum become more valuable than Bitcoin? Now I’m mainly going to be discussing this from facts, so from price charts that I’ve viewed and speculating. Because that’s all anyone can currently do, speculate, about the value of Ethereum rising to overtake Bitcoin.
In this lecture I want to go over some of the wallets you can use to store your Ether, as Bitcoin wallets won’t do the job for this. Now there aren’t as many wallets for Ether, as there are for Bitcoin. But as the Ether eco-system grows you can expect this to change. But for this lecture I will go over some of the most widely used Ether wallets which you can consider using.
So hopefully you now know what wallet you want to work with to store your Ether, and carry out Ethereum transactions with. If you do, in this lecture I just want to show you how to create the wallet, it’s so simple, hence I won’t drag this lecture on as some people would.
So we’ve covered setting up your Ethereum wallet in this section, now I need you to go ahead and create your own Ethereum wallet. It’s the task for this lecture.
So that’s all you need to do, create your very own Ethereum wallet which you can use to store your Ether and take part in transactions, of course, you’ll need a wallet to receive your Ether from me at the end of this course as well, so it’s something you definitely need.
So in this section I want to show you where, and how to buy Ether. As with the wallet selection it’s pretty limited as to your choices, but the choices that are out there are very user friendly in my opinion, so let me share them with you and help you decide which route is best for you.
Now if you remember in the last lecture I mentioned I use this site here Bittylicious to buy all my cryptocurrencies, so Bitcoin and Ether the majority of the time. I just want to show you how easy it is to purchase Ether using this site, I’ll be buying some right now so you can see how it works.
Now as with buying Ether, when it comes to selling Ether, your options are pretty limited at the time of creating this course, but that doesn’t mean that reliable and trustworthy options aren’t there. So in this lecture I just want to go over some of the most reliable sites you can use to sell Ether.
So here we are, the lecture where I’m going to explain how to sell your Ether for the currency of your choice, it’s my way of doing it, it may not be everyone’s personal preference, but I do it this way, and so do many others as well.
Welcome to the third assignment in this course, in this assignment I want you to actually sell your first piece of Ether. Now if you’re thinking, well I don’t actually have any Ether yet, just plan it.
So the first way to complete this assignment is actually if you have some Ether, use some of the of the sites and techniques I mentioned to sell your Ether. Of course if you can sell at a time to profit a little, perfect, but if not no problem. I just want to get you used to the process, any of the sites I mentioned have very good walk through sections on how to sell with their site once you’ve signed up, so definitely check them out.
So what am I going to teach you in this section of the course you may be wondering? Well, we’ve covered how to buy, and sell Ether, as well as learning what it’s about in general. So in this section I want to present the opportunities available to you in the Ethereum eco-system, which will allow you to get involved further and capitalize on its success.
Some of the opportunities will be on simply how you gain maximum use out your Ether, whilst others will be on how you can earn an income from getting involved further in the Ether landscape. So it’s definitely something to stay tuned into, because you could pick up a few little ideas on how to take this curiosity on Ether further than even you imagined.
As with any I’ll say in quotes currency, as Ether is more than just another cryptocurrency, there comes a point when you want just spend the thing, on something, anything, just something you can use, as that’s the whole point of a currency, exchange it for something else.
Now in this lecture I could mention all the shops possibly that accept Ether, but I don’t want to waste your time and drag something out that doesn’t need to be dragged out.
As with any and every cryptocurrency there are those out there that want to buy and hold, essentially investing in the cryptocurrency and hoping for it to rise, then selling to profit from that rise in value since they purchased.
This is something you can do with Ether, of course it isn’t possible for any of us to accurately predict which way the value will go, of course there will be upward trends and downward trends, but it isn’t possible for us to accurately predict how much of a change these will bring.
As with the lecture where I showed you the places you can spend your Ether, I showed you a main site which lists the most stores available to use your Ether in, with this lecture I’m going to list one main site which shows the most amount of Ether faucets you can actively use to earn Ether, without investing a single dime at all.
So if you’ve seen the term Bitcoin mining thrown around, and now perhaps want to see if you can get into Ethereum mining pretty early on, I’ll explain everything about it in this lecture so you can move forward pretty comfortably, and make your next decision, as to if you want to get involved with Ethereum mining.
Like I’ve mentioned a few times already, it’s still early days in the Ethereum landscape, hence there aren’t many publicly available Ether affiliate schemes out there for us to use. But that doesn’t mean you can’t go ahead and setup a niche Ether blog using a free tool like Weebly and promote Ether related products and services.
Another way you can benefit from this rise in Ethereum, is help people to understand it. So perhaps you could create your own online course teaching them about a different aspect of Ethereum, by the way if you do, I’m always happy to co-instruct.
But other than online courses, other things you could do is create kindle books on Ethereum, YouTube tutorials on Ethereum, podcasts on Ethereum, and so much more.
Welcome to the final assignment in this course, and what I what you to do is have a think over what we covered in this section, and look at where you can capitalize on the rise of Ethereum. How do you want to benefit from the rise of this cryptocurrency?
In this lecture, and in fact this section I want to share my opinion and others opinions on what they think is going to happen with Ethereum, this way it helps get your brain thinking about how you reckon this cryptocurrency, and technology will pan out in the long term.
Now I’m going to stick along the lines of what I discussed in the last lecture, about what has helped Ether, and Ethereum become so popular among cryptocurrency, and Bitcoin users.
So here is, what I think has made Ethereum so popular. Technology and so on aside, I think people have that fear instilled inside them of missing out, it’s a natural human feeling.
Here we are, that part of the course where you can get your hands on some Ether of your own. This Ether is only for those of you who are paying students of this course, and have completed the course. Now let me run you through what you need to do to claim this.
