What is Ethereum
Ethereum was created in 2015 by Russian-Canadian programmer Vitalik Buterin as a way to use blockchain technology to change the internet.
Ethereum is an open software platform for developers to build decentralised applications. What this means is that it removes the need for applications to rely on third parties like Amazon Web Services.
Ethereum is best know for its ability to build smart contracts, which are contracts that run exactly programmed without the possibility of any downtime, fraud, censorship or third-party interference. Thanks to this, Ethereum transactions are cheap, transparent and fast.
Unlike Bitcoin, there is no limit on the amount of new ether generated. Ether is the cryptocurrency of the Ethereum network. The token ticker of Ethereum is ETH.
