Learn about Ethereum

Ethereum is a decentralized, open-source blockchain with smart contract functionality. It ranks second only to Bitcoin in terms of market capitalization.

  • Ethereum was the first blockchain to offer smart contract functionality, which allows for the development of dApps on the blockchain.
  • It supports a vast network of companies and dApps built on the Ethereum platform, including NFT marketplaces, decentralized finance, and DAOs.
  • Ethereum is transitioning to ETH 2.0, a protocol that moves from Proof-of-Work to Proof-of-Stake, which reduces the environmental overhead of mining to zero.
