First off, let’s look at the Ethereum price in UAE:
Ethereum has reached a peak of 17000 dirhams in November 2021 and has been on a downtrend since then. However, if you see over the lifetime of Ethereum, it has given massive, 16000% gains as per the above information.
Ethereum is a decentralized global software platform powered by blockchain technology. Ethereum’s native cryptocurrency is ether or ETH. Ethereum can be used by anyone to create any secured digital technology they can think of by way of smart contracts. It has a token designed for use in the blockchain network, but it can also be used by participants as a method to pay for work done on the blockchain. Ethereum was designed to be scalable, programmable, secure, and decentralized.
Here’s is the founder of Ethereum Vitalik Buterin explaining Ethereum:
Previously you’ve learned how to buy bitcoin in UAE and Middle East. In this post, you will learn step by step ways to buy Ethereum.
You may have heard a lot of stories with regard to people getting rich with Ethereum or any other cryptos. It may be true. But do not fall for the stories.
Be careful with your money as cryptocurrencies are speculative and you may lose your money. I always recommend you understand the reasons you are investing in anything.
- Do you understand your investment cryptos, and stocks?
- Do you know the risks associated with investments?
- Are you taking unnecessary risks?
- Do you understand your risk-taking capacity?
Ask these questions before you do any investments.
Before buying Ethereum you must know the top exchanges where you can buy Ethereum from!
My recommended choice within UAE are the following 3 cryptocurrency exchanges:
|Crypto Exchange Name||Link to Buy Crypto|
You must understand that whenever you buy any cryptocurrency, you should be able to take custody of the asset in your wallet.
Platforms like eToro do not offer this facility. Hence, I recommend you not to buy Ethereum if you’re investing for the long term. If you’re looking to trade CFD (Contract for Difference) eToro platform is great.
