Is there a list of features and benefits to using Ethereum?
The most official list must be the one in the Ethereum book:
- user authentication, via seamless integration of cryptographic signatures
- fully customizable payment logic; easily create your own payment system without any reliance on third parties
- 100% ddos resistant up-time, guaranteed by being a fully decentralized blockchain-based platform
- no-fuss storage: forget about having to set up secure databases; Ethereum gives you as much storage as you want
- ultimate interoperability: everything in the Ethereum ecosystem can trivially interact with everything else, from reputation to custom currencies
- server free zone: your whole application can be deployed on the blockchain meaning no need for setting up or maintaining servers; let your users pay for the cost of their using your service.
