The first programmable blockchain
Ethereum was brought to life in 2014 by a guy named Vitalik Buterin. It is an open software platform based on blockchain technology that enables developer to build a decentralized application, known as dapps. It uses smart contract that run without the possibility of censorship, downtime, fraud or interference. Developers are allowed to create whatever they want in the smart contracts. Once deployed to the network, the smart contract will execute exactly as written. Ethereums goal is to truly decentralized the internet.
