What is Ethereum?

Ethereum is a revolutionary, open-source platform for decentralized applications. It is a world computer that anyone can use to build applications in a secure, distributed manner, with all states and data publicly accessible. Ethereum supports smart contracts, allowing developers to write code to program digital value. Popular decentralized applications (dapps) built on Ethereum include tokens, non-fungible tokens, decentralized finance apps, lending protocols, decentralized exchanges, and more.

To execute transactions and smart contracts on Ethereum, a small fee called Gas must be paid. Gas is a unit of measure that reflects the amount of computational effort required to complete an operation or smart contract. The more complex the operation, the more gas is needed. Gas fees are paid in Ether (ETH), the native coin of the blockchain. The price of gas can fluctuate depending on network demand.

How do I buy Ethereum in 2024?

You can buy Ethereum using credit card (Visa or MasterCard), bank transfer, Apple Pay or Google Pay. All you need to do is to choose a fiat currency, e.g. CHF, and enter an amount. A conversion rate is calculated for you. Once you are happy with the rate, tap the "Continue" button to get started. At this point, you will need to connect your email or wallet (if you are buying crypto for the first time, it will be easier for you to use your email, but Metamask and WalletConnect are also supported). Depending on wether Ethereum is supported by our ramp provider, you may be invited to buy an intermediary token, that we will then swap to Ethereum for you. In this case, you will first need to sign a permit in order to allow us to perform this swap on your behalf. Finally, you will be able to choose your payment method, and finalise your purchase. If this is your first time buying with Ondefy, you will need to complete a short KYC (Known Your Customer) verification.
