Ether ETH

Ether is the integral element (i.e. native currency) of the Ethereum Blockchain network, which functions like the fuel of the Ethereum ecosystem. It is a form of payment made by the network participants to the machines executing the requested operations. Ether provides an incentive to ensure that developers write quality applications and that the network remains healthy, as developers are being compensated for the resources which they contribute.
