eBTC – Just an ERC-20 token; not “Bitcoin on Ethereum”
The Bitcoinlike feature of eBTC is that there are 21 million tokens, divisible to 8 decimal places.
(There is a problem where a bug in the eBTC smart contract means the creator could create unlimited tokens.
They haven’t used this bug and promise they won’t, while the developers work on a fixed version.)
You can trade it on Mercatox, and (like any ERC-20 token) on EtherDelta.
The price is currently about 12 cents per eBTC on Mercatox, while Ethereum transaction fees are around 35 cents.
