What is Ethereum?

Much like Bitcoin, Etheruem is an open-source and public platform that no one single person controls. The software platform is based on blockchain technology and enables people to build decentralized applications. The token that powers these applications and the Ethereum network is called 'Ether'.

How does it work?

With Ethereum technology, smart contracts can be written that can enable anyone to trade or exchange things of value, transparently without the need of a third party to oversee the deal.
