Etherium, as i understand it, is a cryptocurrency used to build on the "ether" which is kind of a decentralized platform for people to build apps.
Etherium is used to pay to build on the Ether. So it's actually less of a currency than bitcoin and more of a token of sorts for a specific purpose. At least at this stage.
I'm sure 90sbaby has more specifics
Exactly, it is much more than just a currency. The cat is about to be out of the bag and now all the big players are jumping in.

It is being rumored right now that soon you will be able to purchase CC's on the popular trading platforms like TD and Scottrade, that alone will make most double overnight. Also heard Amazon may start accepting Bitcoin/Ethereum, but don't know how much truth there is in that, but eventually I think they will have to.
Like I said, this is where most of my money is going, to me it is glaringly obvious that these blockchains aren't going anywhere and they are only going to become more and more valuable.
Mookz grab a few Litecoin's if you can, that isn't going to stay below $35 much longer.
