2.5 million Ether is $2 ?

The latest upgrade to the popular Ethereum blockchain protocol – Byzantium –went live today, adding additional privacy and performance features. Blockchains claim to offer users additional anonymity compared to standard systems because they're decentralised. Bitcoin is focused on cryptocurrencies, while the Ethereum network is …
Gas != Ethereum. It is purchased WITH Ethereum, and its price can fluctuate. https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/ethereum/ suggests (right now) that one ETH is worth about $300.

The article misses the point here. So long as ETH can be readily converted to a major currency, there is real money at stake. While I encourage and any all to play with the language in sandboxes at the like, the fact that https://solidity.readthedocs.io/en/develop/frequently-asked-questions.html#what-does-the-following-strange-check-do-in-the-custom-token-contract is part of the faq scares me. What that check does is see if you are ready to write actual contracts. (If you have to ask the question, you are NOT ready--no guarantees the other way.)
No, serious crypto is beyond the reach of average programmers. That's why libraries are provided. If the libraries that are available are too hard, then more accessible ones can be created. But no amount of libraries can prevent the types of errors that happen when people lack the training in this stuff. This goes beyond RTFM. It's more like Take the Fine Class.

Fiat currency systems cannot compete against cryptocurrency exchanges that value and support viable creative disruptive thought share more than the coins and any IOU papers themselves.
