30 Ethereum Based Business Ideas You Can Start Today [2021]

Interested in starting a ethereum business in 2021?

We put together 30 of the best ethereum businesses you can start in today.

For each business idea, we’ll show you real-world examples of other ethereum businesses to help you see what it really takes.

Here's the full list:

1. Start a cryptocurrency exchange service ($1.2M/year)

Exolix Team from Tallinn started Exolix almost 3 years ago, a cryptocurrency exchange service.

  • Revenue: $100,000/ month
  • Founders: 3
  • Employees: 20
  • Location: Tallinn

The idea to create Exolix appeared spontaneously. Our team consists of a fairly large number of people who are involved in the digital field and are interested in and invest in crypto. In such a team, ideas of creating a new product come several times a day, but we wanted to create something really necessary for people, or better, something that we ourselves need. We spent a long time researching, analyzing the market, looking for the value that could form the basis of our product.

The ability to provide an absolutely secure and anonymous crypto exchange service, where the user is protected from sharp price fluctuations in the market by setting a fixed rate. So that the user has complete freedom, given the absence of a maximum limit for the exchange amount. This seemed to us quite valuable. Today we can say that Exolix is ​​a product created from a heart and not only for our customers but for ourselves.

2. Start an online courses business ($1.44M/year)

Rasmus & Christian Mikkelsen (or Mikkelsen Twins) from Chester, New Jersey, USA started Mikkelsen Twins over 3 years ago, a online courses business.

  • Revenue: $120,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 2
  • Location: Chester, New Jersey, USA

We never had a moment like “Ah ha! Let’s start an online education company!”, it just naturally evolved and grew into what it is today.

But I can tell you exactly how we got here. Before we get into how we first discovered what entrepreneurship even is, I want to paint the picture of what life was like even before that.

Up until we were 21 years old, we were 2 guys just going through life on autopilot with no regard for the future. Worrying about what my next week would look like was hard enough. Then we basically “woke up” and found ourselves in a 1 bedroom apartment in Aarhus, Denmark, not showing up to our part-time job anymore and smoking pot every day. For the first time, we reflected on ourselves, what we were doing and we just felt embarrassed. We were wasting our precious time away doing absolutely nothing. I don’t want to get too into the emotions felt, but it was a rock bottom for us. Long story short, we have a private twin meeting and said to each other “this is f\cking sad, we have to change”. And because we had each other, we developed motivation and ambition to prove we weren’t useless, waste-of-space losers (but that’s exactly how we had acted).

3. Start a dropshipping business ($144K/year)

Amanda Austin from Erie, Pennsylvania, USA started Little Shop of Miniatures about 4 years ago, a dropshipping business.

  • Revenue: $12,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: Erie, Pennsylvania, USA

I was unhappily working in marketing for a Fortune 500 insurance company when I started looking at ways to create a new income stream. I became interested in ecommerce and invested in a course to learn more. I compiled a list of keywords for products that had decent search volume and not terribly competitive to rank for in organic search. I used Long Tail Pro to get ideas--I had so many when I first started!

My business is a small, mostly passive income stream and I’m okay with that. There is so much more I could be doing with my store, but right now I am loving the extra income stream that allows me to work part-time at my day job and spend more time with my infant daughter.

A bunch of keywords in the dollhouse miniatures space fit the bill. I used Long Tail Pro and looked for keywords that were competitive--which on there is a score in the twenties or low thirties. I also wanted them to have at least 2,000 searches per month. This is not a ton, but five keywords with that search volume that are not that competitive can lead to a decent number of organic traffic if you build your site the right way. My advice to aspiring entrepreneurs is to find a niche with a nice handful of keywords you can rank for with quality content and a nice backlinking strategy. Don’t try to be number one for some saturated keyword that has a million searches a month. Go for keywords where you stand a chance of ranking--this is usually so-called long tail keywords that are really phrases--for example, “wooden dollhouse furniture” instead of just “dollhouse.”

4. Start a cryptocurrency business ($384K/year)

Auston Bunsen from Miami, Florida, USA started CBlocks.io over 3 years ago, a cryptocurrency business.

  • Revenue: $32,000/ month
  • Founders: 3
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: Miami, Florida, USA

I’ve been a web developer for like 12 years, I’ve learned about all sorts of cool technologies over the years.

In 2011, I went to a meetup called Hack&Tell and heard about Bitcoin from another developer named Michael Greenberg. A couple years later, in 2013, I started to mess around with the technology in my free time. In the middle of last year, I started getting into Ethereum and began to evangelize the technology. I believe it’s an awesome platform to build on. I convinced almost every single person I worked with to buy Ethereum and always got feedback that it was “so hard to get started with”.

So, my co-founder Mario and I were all hanging out on Mario’s last day at Wyncode (where we all worked together), and Mario was saying he wanted to get into crypto.

5. Start a consulting business ($0/year)

Liz Illg from Phoenix, AZ, USA started Liz Illg over 2 years ago, a consulting business.

  • Revenue: $0/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 2
  • Location: Phoenix, AZ, USA

I remember vividly when my idea of business consulting came to me. I was at a networking conference with other business owners and when I stood up to introduce myself to the group, I called myself a systems consultant.

Industries change. Times are constantly changing. Relationships, if built regularly, can last forever!

From that day forward, I created the perfect way to audit an operational system or create one, effectively and efficiently. My systems consultation service is still available to this day and I’ve helped business owners dial in theirs to allow them to grow and transform their teams.
