What is Ethereum?

Ethereum is an open-source blockchain network that is used by developers for the purpose of creating and supporting a variety of decentralised applications (Dapps). As a peer-to-peer network, it removes the need of using intermediary authorities and companies by giving users a method of transferring funds and making agreements with another person directly. ETH or Ether is the native currency of the Ethereum blockchain network. People typically refer to ETH or Ether as Ethereum.

How does Ethereum work?

Ethereum was originally launched in 2015 as an open-source blockchain network designed for developers to build and run decentralised applications or ‘Dapps.’ Its primary feature, though is that it allows developers to create and operate smart contracts, which are computer programs that self execute the necessary actions required to fulfil an agreement between two or several parties. These smart contracts are executed by the EVM which refers to the Ethereum Virtual Machine. The EVM is run by a global network of nodes. The Ethereum blockchain can be used to run smart contracts and decentralised applications across a variety of industries.

In addition to this, automatic teller machines (ATMs) are scattered across major cities allowing people to exchange their Ethereum assets for cash and vice versa.

Many users who buy ETH do so with the expectation that the asset will increase in value, and then they can sell it for a profit. However, there are many other use cases of Ethereum.

Owners of ETH, can execute smart contracts and create and operate decentralised applications. Additionally, Ethereum can also be spent on goods and services now that more vendors and retailers are beginning to accept the digital currency.
