Coinfirm details what happened to the first mined Ethereum after the asset's launch in 2015.
Ethereum, a household name in the crypto industry, fired up its network on July 30, 2015, but what happened to the first ETH coin ever mined all those years ago? Blockchain analytics and Anti-Money Laundering company Coinfirm found out.
“Another great example of the many benefits of blockchains such as Ethereum compared to the traditional space, we can see and understand the literal creation of value and how it moves," Coinfirm co-founder and CMO Grant Blaisdell told Cointelegraph, adding, "In a time where fiat printing by central banks and other major elements are absolutely unknown to the people and businesses effected by it.”
