How Many Units Are in a Ethereum?

As of July 2018, there are a total of 102,112,496 ETH in circulation. This number is ever-changing and does not include any unclaimed ETH that may be lurking in wallets or smart contracts.

To put this into perspective, let’s compare it to the world’s supply of gold. According to, there are approximately 195,040 metric tons of gold mined throughout history. This equates to about 606316487960 grams or 6.

063 x 10^10 grams. Dividing this by ETH’s current circulating supply gives us a rough estimate that each ETH is worth about 606 grams of gold. In other words, 1 ETH is worth about $6,060 USD worth of gold (as of July 25, 2018).

Of course, this is a very rough estimate and doesn’t take into account the fact that gold can be divisible into much smaller units (such as grams, milligrams, etc.), whereas ETH currently can only be divided into much larger units (such as wei).

NOTE: Warning: Investing in cryptocurrencies can be very risky. Before investing in Ethereum, it is important to understand the amount of units that are available. It is also important to understand the volatility associated with Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies. Investing in Ethereum should only be done after thorough research and understanding of the risks involved.

It’s also important to remember that the world’s supply of gold is constantly increasing due to mining efforts, while the world’s supply of ETH is capped at 21 million.

In conclusion, there are currently 102,112,496 ETH in circulation and each ETH is worth about $6,060 USD worth of gold. The world’s supply of ETH is capped at 21 million though, so it will become increasingly valuable as time goes on and moreETH are mined.
