Question about ETH as an investment
I understand that many applications are being built on top of the ethereum network to take advantage of its blockchain and smart contract capabilities. AAVE, for example, has its own purpose and its own coin being issued.
My question is this: What relationship do dapps and coins (such as AAVE) built on the ethereum network have to ETH coins?
I love the idea of DeFi, smart contracts, NFT's, etc., but I'm not exactly sure where the investment is. I have currently purchase ETH, but I'm not sure if my ETH would necessarily benefit from the success of dapps or other coins on the ethereum network.
Any input here?
