What is Ethereum

Founded in 2014 by Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum is a software platform built on blockchain technology. Ethereum is programmable, meaning developers can build new applications over its network. These apps then carry the benefits of blockchain technology, including the use of cryptocurrencies and smart contracts.

The network’s digital asset Ether (ETH) is the second largest cryptocurrency by market capitalisation.
