What Is The Difference Between Bitcoin and Ethereum?

If you went out and asked ten random people to name a cryptocurrency they knew about then the most cited would undoubtedly be Bitcoin and Ethereum. This simply comes down to them being the two most valuable cryptocurrencies when you look at market cap - as of writing (and remember these numbers tend to change a lot), all the Bitcoin in existence has a total value over $109 billion and Ethereum over $44 billion. As a result, it is only normal that these two cryptocurrencies see more headlines in mainstream media and as a result see a wider adoption.
