Can I treat ether as an ERC20 token? If so, what is the ehter contract address? For example I would like to stream ether to another account. But I need to provide contract address of ether for that.

  • Here is another example of ERC20 wrapper contract for Ether, called EtherToken. Mar 3, 2020 at 7:29

Ether is not an ERC20 token - however, the WETH contract creates Wrapped Ether, which is an ERC20 token backed 1:1 by Ether.

  • I suspected there will be some hack strapped on to make it work. The whole ehterium feels like horse shoed or strapped on to make it work.
