What is Ethereum?

Ethereum is an open-source, decentralised blockchain platform and ecosystem. Created by Vitalik Buterin in 2013, Ethereum is responsible for a number of innovations to blockchain technology, including the introduction of smart contracts. Smart contracts are digital contracts that are executed across the Ethereum network, functioning similar to how standard contracts work, but instead of needing an intermediary to oversee the execution of the contract, a smart contract executes digitally once a series of pre-set conditions have been met. UK residents can buy Ethereum on the Swyftx trading platform.

Another innovation introduced by Ethereum is the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), a decentralised computer that allows for Decentralised Applications (dApps) to be run using it.

ETH of Ether is the native cryptocurrency of the Ethereum blockchain, the most widely used blockchain, and is the second most valuable cryptocurrency by market capitalisation.
