About Blockchains

What is Bitcoin?


Bitcoin stands as a leading cryptocurrency and payment network, utilizing peer-to-peer technology to operate without central authorities. It embraces global participation as an open-source platform. A notable advancement in Bitcoin is the introduction of ordinals and inscriptions. Launched in January 2023, the Bitcoin ordinals protocol enables the embedding of digital content like art, text, or video directly onto the Bitcoin blockchain. This innovation allows for the creation of exclusive digital collectibles, giving each satoshi a unique identity and purpose, broadening Bitcoin's utility beyond its role as a store of value.

What is Ethereum?


Ethereum emerges as a decentralized, open-source blockchain platform empowering developers to craft and deploy smart contracts alongside dApps. Pioneering the smart contract concept, Ethereum enables self-executing agreements with terms directly encoded into its blockchain, eliminating the need for intermediaries. Additionally, Ethereum serves as a hub for the creation and exchange of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) and various digital assets. Its intrinsic cryptocurrency, Ether (ETH), facilitates network transactions and incentivizes miners to uphold network security. Ethereum's evolution to Ethereum 2.0 introduces a proof-of-stake (PoS) mechanism, aiming to enhance scalability and energy efficiency.
