Ethereum (blockchain)

What is Ethereum?

Launched in July of 2015, Ethereum is one of the world’s leading programmable blockchains with two basic functions: a blockchain that can record transactions, and a virtual machine that can produce smart contracts. This programmability allows developers to build decentralized applications (DApps) off its smart contract technology, unlike Bitcoin, which can only be used as a payment system. Examples of DApps built on the Ethereum network include, but are not limited to:

    • ERC-20 tokens that can function as a currency, a share in a company, points in a loyalty program, or even proof of ownership
    • Cryptocurrency wallets
    • Financial applications
    • Decentralized markets
    • Games where you own in-game assets or actual currency
