Etho Protocol is a blockchain that offers EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) and IPFS integration along with storage and hosting capabilities. So what does Etho Protocol have to offer you?
Let’s talk about the six major major use cases (“Pillars”):
Pillar #1 Hosting / The Hosting Customer
If you want to store or share data reliably, you might be interested in our hosting solutions. With Etho Protocol, you can upload, deploy and store data. At the time of this writing, you can pay in ETHO (the native coin for the Etho Protocol Blockchain), but FIAT gateways will soon be integrated. ETHO can be acquired from exchanges, swaps, bridges, or mined.
Etho Protocol exposes its functionality via commercial APIs. This means you can build an application on top of our commercial-grade APIs and we’re able to provide the hosting platform for complete deployment of your application. Two such examples are Pinable.io. and HUP.life.
Pinable.io is a pinning service. With Pinable, you can easily upload all kinds of data. Using a freemium model, they have been able to simplify storing and retrieving data on the IPFS implementation through Etho Protocol. They have facilitated the Etho protocol SDK, which takes care of the storage handling, so they can focus on the design, interfacing, and business model creation. You can think of Etho Protocol as a highway, and channel partners as the vehicle manufacturers: we built the street, and Pinable built the car. Try them out on https://pinable.io
HUP.life is a socially conscious NFT Marketplace for artists and collectors to authenticate their art, find copycats online, and buy, sell, or license them through their copyright as Copyright-Enabled NFTs (ceNFTs)™ while complying with international law. HUP.life solves the NFT Permanence Problem and hosts metadata and multimedia files through a Decentralized, Resilient File Hosting Protocol (Etho Protocol and Flux partnerships).

Pillar #2 Channel Partnerships / The Channel Partner
Channel partners are repackaging Etho Protocol and offering it to their customers. If you have a business idea or commercial application, you can build an application on top of our commercial-grade APIs. Our business development team is highly committed to fostering this opportunity to provide you with support to utilize our technology.
Get Started with Channel Partnerships: contact our head of business development, firstname.lastname@example.org
Pillar #3 Development / The Developer
Etho protocol has an SDK that is freely available and maintained in a backward-compatible way. You can build solutions based on the ETHO IPFS, be it to build a messaging system, a database, a publishing tool, or a dropbox. You will be able to view use-case example videos on our YouTube channel. If you are interested in working with us, please contact our developer relations department.

Pillar #4 Mining / The Miner
Our network is currently secured by proof of work, which means that you as a miner or hobbyist can mine ETHO and contribute to the blockchain. Currently, the network operates at 10+GH/s with several pools contributing. Etho protocol uses Ethash Algorithm, so you can mine with graphic cards and standard mining software.
Pillar #5 Staking / The Node Operator
Etho protocol provides IPFS capabilities via a node network. You can be one of our many individual node owners who get a daily reward currently at around 8–10%. Nodes require a certain amount of ETHO to be deposited as a stake, based on what node tier you select. Check out nodes.ethoprotocol.com for more information. Or you can lend/borrow ETHO on our Staking Platform and split the rewards with node operators at https://staking.ethofs.com/
Pillar #6 Trading / The Trader
ETHO is traded on several large exchanges including Kucoin, Probit, and STEX. As a trader, you can buy and sell ETHO at any time. The previous year’s value ranged from less than $0.002 to over $0.30, with increasingly healthy volume and liquidity.
Start trading ETHO:
- Kucoin ETHO/USDT (Kucoin currently only supports ERC-20 “wrapped” ETHO, so you be sure to wrap/unwrap via our bridge while sending coins to/from Kucoin until they deploy our mainnet coin)
- Kucoin ETHO/BTC (Kucoin currently only supports ERC-20 “wrapped” ETHO, so you be sure to wrap/unwrap via our bridge while sending coins to/from Kucoin until they deploy our mainnet coin)
- Probit ETHO/USDT
- Probit ETHO/BTC
- STEX ETHO/BTC
- Mercatox ETHO/BTC
- Mercatox ETHO/ETH
- Graviex ETHO/BTC
If you want list ETHO as a coin on your exchange please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Etho Protocol has a solid foundation and a very active team to push the boundaries in all directions. If you are interested in engaging with our project, visit our website ethoprotocol.com, or join our Twitter, Telegram channel, Discord server. See you soon.
