In this post, we’ll explain why we believe that Ethereum’s native token, Ether, is likely to become a better store of value than Bitcoin.

You might be wondering — how is this possible?

Bitcoin and its Hard Cap Monetary Policy

Bitcoin has traditionally captured the store of value narrative more than any other digital asset. And this makes sense, as scarcity is baked into its codebase. First, there is a hard cap of 21 million tokens that will ever be issued. Second, every four years there is a “halving” event in which Bitcoin’s issuance per block (aka its inflation rate) goes down by 50%.

Why does inflation…


This past weekend, the Dai stablecoin, which is created by the Maker protocol, crossed US$1 billion in circulation. This an incredible achievement in just a short period of time.

In this post we will cover:

-What is a stablecoin
-How the Dai stablecoin is unique
-What Dai means for the Maker system and the MKR token
-Why Dai at US$1 billion is such an impressive achievement
-How the MKR token fits with Ether Capital’s investment thesis

Even if you don’t follow cryptocurrency or “crypto”, you may have heard of the term stablecoin at some point recently. The profile of stablecoins…


By Benjamin Roberts, Co-CIO of Ether Capital

When we started Ether Capital (NEO:ETHC) three years ago, we talked about Ethereum as a kind of digital toll road of the future; a place where anyone could build and use interoperable financial infrastructure and pay a small fee to the Ethereum network for securing it.

In our analogy, smart contract developers and users were cars, and the public Ethereum blockchain was the toll road. …


SUMMARY:

  1. Why cryptocurrency is a unique store of value
  2. How crypto has become a viable financial asset
  3. Why the timing is right to take advantage of this opportunity

2020 has been a year of many contrasts

In some ways, it has taken us back in time — a more local lifestyle and days spent with family. In other ways, it has catapulted us into the future — “distanced” working and socializing require a much deeper use and knowledge of technology.

This latter category is the lens through which we can view cryptocurrency (aka “crypto”). Over ten years ago, Bitcoin showed…


Ether Capital is primarily invested in Ether (“ETH”) and the Ethereum ecosystem. Later this year, the Ethereum blockchain will transition from “Proof of Work” to “Proof of Stake”. Proof of Stake is a hugely significant milestone for Ethereum and an exciting financial opportunity for Ether Capital investors.

So what is Proof of Stake and why is it so important? In this post we will describe Proof of Stake, show how it creates a digital bond and provide context on yields investors might expect.

Proof of Work vs. Proof of Stake

Before we can understand Proof of Stake, we need to understand its precursor: Proof of Work.

Ether Capital Corporation (NEO: ETHC) wishes to highlight and re-affirm the importance of governance and security practices it has maintained since its inception specifically in light of current news in the sector including a recent creditor protection filing by Quadriga CX, a major Canadian cryptocurrency exchange.
