Ether-1 (ETHO) is a fork of Ethereum implementing a decentralized hosting platform (ethoFS) using a community-owned node network combining blockchain indexing technology and the IPFS protocol to deliver decentralized content on-demand. EthoFS is a decentralized website hosting platform which utilizes the node network for storage and bandwidth, DDoS protection, censorship-resistance, and reliability. Community-owned nodes share in data hosting revenue generated by the network.
Node Types Available For Deployment:
- Service Node (SN): Act as a data relay and secure the Ether-1 blockchain.
- Masternode (MN): Provide storage and processing resources to the network and secure the Ether-1 blockchain.
- Gateway Node (GN): Provide storage and processing resources to the network, secure the Ether-1 blockchain, and act a gateway to decentrally hosted ethoFS data on the network.
How do I buy cryptocurrency?
While some cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, are available for purchase with U.S. dollars, others require that you pay with bitcoin or another cryptocurrency.
To buy cryptocurrencies, you’ll need a “wallet,” an online app that can hold your currency. Generally, you create an account on an exchange, and then you can transfer real money to buy cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin or ethereum.
Coinbase is one popular cryptocurrency trading exchange where you can create both a wallet and buy and sell bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
