Ethereum is a platform and a programming language that helps developers to build and publish next-generation distributed applications.

Ethereum can be used to codify, decentralize, secure and trade just about anything: voting, domain names, financial exchanges, crowdfunding, company governance, contracts and agreements of most kind, intellectual property, and even smart property thanks to hardware integration.

Ethereum was founded in 2014 by Joseph Lubin & Vitalik Buterin and is based in Switzerland.


Ethereum borrows the concept of decentralized consensus that makes bitcoin so resilient, yet makes it trivial to build on its foundation.
