Hi,

May I ask why Etherium above all other crypto? What drew you specifically to work and write about this platform?

Cheers
Joe

Hi Joe, although the Ethereum platform has an associated cyptocurrency called 'ether', what differentiates Ethereum from most "cryptos" is that it is in fact a blockchain development platform that allows developers to build any decentralized application, not only cryptos. As an early follower of bitcoin and as a software developer I was attracted by this innovation that combined two of my big interests. I am very excited about the potential of Ethereum and looking forward to a killer use case that can boost its adoption.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
