Looking for a different cryptocurrency than bitcoin? Ethereum might just be what you’re looking for! Why are so many people enthusiastic about this project?
Well, it’s mainly caused by two things: its price (loads of people gained a lot of money from investing in ether), and the very promising developments that are going on regarding the Ethereum network. On this page we’ll take a closer look at the price developments over the past couple of years.
First things first to prevent confusion; with Ethereum we’re referring to the entire network, and when we mention ether, we are talking about the cryptocurrency that runs on the Ethereum network. You’re welcome ;)

Historical ethereum price
It’s also useful to follow the historical price of ether. Check out this fancy overview in which you can adjust the range yourself. Compare days, months or even years with each other. Looking for that special date, for example your wedding date? The choice is yours.
Return on Investment
The word ‘gains’ no longer refers to adding muscle now you’ve entered the world of crypto! If you would have bought 100 euros worth of ether at the start of 2017, you could have sold them later that year for the jaw-dropping amount of 6,765.93 euros!
Don’t worry, you don’t have to use a calculator to figure out what your ‘gains’ (or losses for that matter) are, we’ve already done the math for you! Check out the ROI-table above. ROI stands for Return On Investment. Here you will see what an investment would have brought you if you’ve done it one year ago or three years ago. Since Ethereum didn’t exist yet five years ago, that field now states 0 percent, but it will be filled in August 2020 ;)
Ahh 2017, what a wonderful year
It hasn’t been that long, but what do you remember from 2017? The winner cards at the Oscars got mixed up, there was a solar eclipse, and ether gained a mind blowing 6665,93 percent.
Nope, that’s not a typo. At the start of 2017, one ether was worth 9.54 euros. 12 months later, ether broke the charts and was worth 645.47 euros per coin.
Throughout 2017, Initial Coin Offerings (ICO’s) were hotter than ever; everyone wanted to be a part of the newest crowdfunding projects on the Ethereum network. Ether was being traded for ICO tokens a lot, and the increasing demand made the price jump up.
Many applications have been built on the Ethereum blockchain. Those apps send data to each other and you can see that as a transaction. Just like a regular ether transaction, there is a fee for such a data transaction also. After all, the miners also have to earn something.
Think of the successful CryptoKitties, which temporarily congested the entire network due to their popularity. CryptoKitties are a kind of digital Pokémons in the form of unique cats. You can trade your unique CryptoKitty with others. A trade is considered a data transaction and it will cost a small amount of fee.
This is just one example. As long as data is being sent by one of the thousands of initiatives on the Ethereum network, ether continues to have value.

What are you waiting for?
Now you know why Ethereum is as popular as it is, and why it will be a profitable investment in the long run. First there was the ICO hype, but now the main focus is the apps that are being built on the network. Need help? Check our ether predictions.

Buying ethereum in four steps
BLOX is completely free to download for iPhone and Android. Check out the App Store or Google Play on your smartphone, and look for ‘BLOX crypto trading’. Or keep it simple and click one of these buttons. Downloaded the app? Then it’s almost time to buy ether!
Creating an account is easy, you can register within one minute. Use your email address or one of your social media accounts.
Fill out your name, enter your email address, and come up with a strong password. Read the terms and conditions and click ‘Accept’. We’ll send you an email as verification. Click the link within 30 minutes and continue to the next step.
Just like your Nokia 3310 back in the day, you can charge the credit on your BLOX account. But instead of walking to the store in order to buy your credit, it only takes a few seconds to charge the credit in your BLOX app.
Open BLOX and choose the Euro icon. Select your preferred payment method, like bank transfer or credit card, and charge as much (or as little) as you please. Just one more step, and before you know it, you own some ether.
BLOX is installed, you’ve created an account, and your credit is charged. You can spread over various crypto, or go all-in on ether. Or maybe wait a little longer..? The choice is all yours.
Go to the Markets section on the bottom left, choose ‘Ethereum (ETH)’, and find out everything about the price developments of the last day, week, or month. Happy about the current price? Click ‘Buy’ and choose how many ether you’d like to purchase!
Naturally, selling ether is just as easy as buying it.
