What is Ethereum?
Ethereum is a decentralized computing platform. It can be compared to a computer or laptop, but it does not run on one device. It runs simultaneously on thousands of machines all over the globe, so it doesn’t have a single owner.
Like Bitcoin, Ethereum allows you to send digital money. But Ethereum can do a lot more than that. You can create your code and interact with other users’ applications. Ethereum is flexible enough to allow you to launch all kinds of complex programs.
The main idea behind Ethereum is for developers to create and launch code that runs on a distributed network rather than on a central server. These applications are theoretically inaccessible or blocked.
