From a basic standpoint, both Bitcoin and Ethereum are cryptocurrencies that might be a lucrative investment and are definitely worth investing in. There is a recurrent question though that many potential and current investors tend to ask, whether both crypto’s are the same and whether there really is one that is better than the other. Let’s address these concerns in this short article.

First things first, Bitcoin is 6 years older than ethereum as it was created back in 2009 while Ethereum created in 2015, just 4 years ago. This age difference is the main reason why Bitcoin is priced way higher than ethereum as it had the great advantage of being the first ever global cryptocurrency. One thing though is that Ethereum comes with some amazing features that make it way more valuable than bitcoin as a cryptocurrency, features we will take a brief look at later in this article.

So, what are the shared aspects of these two cryptos? Firstly, both Cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and Ethereum are able to act as stores of value. In terms of value storage, Bitcoin remains on top because it has the advantage of being the first ever cryptocurrency to hit the market. Ethereum is second in the world for this aspect.

While the main uses of Ethereum and Ether make it quite different from bitcoin, arguably the biggest difference is in the underlying technology itself — and what that means for other cryptocurrencies. Technically, Ethereum isn’t a cryptocurrency at all, but a special kind of blockchain technology that not only powers Ether transfers between people, but can be used to create all kinds of other cryptocurrencies.

Let us address one of the most basic concepts in economics: supply and demand. Bitcoin has a limit of 21 billion coins, by having this limit, Bitcoin can regulate its Price. It was easy for miners to mine theser coins and get a block reward. Ethereum does not have a cap limit. Ethereum tries to be platform for decentralized services. Since the mining reward for this coin is so low, the total supply of Ethereum will not go out of control.

In conclusion, Bitcoin and Ethereum are both extremely important and valuable projects. Even if you are not a serious crypto investor/trader, you won’t go wrong by buying BTC or ETH tokens. Both of them bring immense value to the crypto community.
