Ethereum and World of Warcraft


From where did Ethereum got it’s name?

The inventor of Ethereum, Vitalik Butein answered it in Ethereum Community Forum. When rugbyowl; a member of the community asked this question, “Does it have any meaning to it?”, Buterin answered:

“I was browsing a list of elements from science fiction on Wikipedia when I came across the name. I immediately realized that I liked it better than all of the other alternatives that I had seen; I suppose it was the fact that sounded nice and it had the word “ether”, referring to the hypothetical invisible medium that permeates the universe and allows light to travel.

Although I did play wow back in the day, any reference to those level 70 baddies in Netherstorm is purely incidental.”
