The Bitcoin network is a thorough yet elegant protocol that allows for its native asset — Bitcoin (BTC) — to be used like digital cash in peer-to-peer transactions. And the Ethereum network is a smart contract platform on top of which decentralized applications (dApps) are built.

Some refer to Ethereum as “the world computer.” The native asset of the Ethereum network — Ether (ETH) — fuels the transactions on this global computer network.

However, the rules that govern the production of BTC are different than those that govern the production of ETH.

Bitcoin’s monetary policy is set in stone — or immutable code — which makes BTC a store of specific monetary values. Ethereum’s monetary policy is ever-changing, which makes ETH difficult to price.
