How to receive Ethereum (Ether, ETH)
If you want to get the digital asset Ethereum, you need a wallet first to be able to store your Ether. We recommend to use the official wallet called "Mist" created by the Ethereum Project. You can find all releases of the Ethereum wallet on the open source community site GitHub. Those who do not want to download or install anything can use the MyEtherWallet site to store their Ether.
The decentralized platform Ethereum provides creating and running of blockchain-based applications and so-called smart contracts. Those blockchain operations are paid using the cryptocurrency Ether with a current circulating supply of 108,447,962 ETH and no predefined maximum.
The Ethereum platform allows users to create and design their own tradable tokens. Over the last few years about 50000 of those Ethereum tokens have been issued by the community.
