The "base" unit of measurement in Ethereum is called Ether, which can be broken down to the eighteenth decimal place into single units called Wei. While it is useful for machines and programs to be able to deal with such small amounts, it can be difficult for the human mind to deal with such significant differences in terms of numbers. For example, if you were to think of these values in terms of US Dollars, then a Wei is to a penny what an Ether is to 1 Quintillion (1,000,000,000,000,000,000) dollars. Not only that, but these denominations have been named in honor of people whose research and ideas cryptocurrency is built upon, so the names for the denominations are relatively obscure and unintuitive to the average person.

For example: I need to send 300 Finney to someone. The gas cost for the transaction is 2 Shannon (Gwei) (per unit of gas). It will cost 21,000 units of gas. But what does this all mean in terms of Ether?

Additionally, while we like to talk and deal with units such as Ether or Finney since they're closer in value to other currencies we're used to transacting in, Ethereum itself handles all the numbers internally in terms of Wei (as an integer). So if you start to get involved with programming smart contracts for Ethereum, you often need to enter values in Wei.

So I made this app that allows you to type in a value in any of the various Ethereum denominations and it will display the equivalent value in the other denominations.

If you use Ethereum and you find this tool useful, donations of ETH or ERC20 Tokens are greatly appreciated: 0xDC201825Cc536b9541734eb975Cd6333840C736d

Quickly see equivalent values in various Ethereum denominations.

Planned Features
No future features planned, since they don't seem needed.

No installation needed. Just run the executable.

Using the Application
Type in an amount in the appropriate denomination as desired.
Copy & Paste to/from other fields if needed.

No uninstallation needed. Just delete the executable.

Known Issues
It doesn't validate input. So if you type in an invalid number it can give incorrect or strange looking results. (Such as when entering too many digits on the right side of the decimal point.)
