What is Ethereum?

✓Accessible for everyone ✓Decentralised global computer ✓Smart contracts

Ethereum, launched in July 2015, revolutionised the blockchain space by introducing smart contracts and a platform for decentralised applications (dApps). Conceived by Vitalik Buterin in a 2013 whitepaper, Ethereum's development was crowdfunded in 2014, making it one of the earliest examples of an Initial Coin Offering (ICO). Ethereum's network has undergone several upgrades, enhancing its efficiency and scalability. It aims to be a global platform for decentralised applications, offering a censorship-resistant, downtime-resistant, and fraud-resistant environment for developers and users alike.

Ethereum's native cryptocurrency, Ether (ETH), is used to pay transaction fees, secure the network via staking and as a store of value and tradable asset across the Ethereum eco-system.

In Australia, buying Ethereum is perfectly legal. In fact, over one million Aussies have already purchased digital assets, with many of them buying Ethereum.

How is Ethereum different from bitcoin?

Bitcoin and Ethereum are often compared because they're the two largest digital assets by market cap. However, they're designed to serve different purposes within the crypto ecosystem. Bitcoin is created to be a new form of digital money without a central authority and acts as a store of value. In contrast, Ethereum was created to be a world computer that decentralised apps run on top of.

Is Ethereum a proof-of-work or proof-of-stake blockchain?

Ethereum is currently a proof-of-work (PoW) blockchain but is transitioning to proof-of-stake (PoS) with the Ethereum 2.0 upgrade. Both PoW and PoS are types of consensus mechanisms that let a decentralised network of digital currencies all agree on the current state of the blockchain. When Ethereum becomes a PoS blockchain, users can stake their ETH with validators on the network, who then order transactions and create new blocks. When holders take their token, they receive a yield and effectively earn interest paid in ETH. The move to Ethereum 2.0 will make the network more secure, scalable, and sustainable.

What is Ethereum 2.0?

[Ethereum 2.0](/learn/what-is-ethereum-2/) is a series of upgrades that will make the Ethereum network more scalable, secure, and sustainable. Becoming faster and more affordable to use, the upgrade will support thousands of transactions per second, allowing Dapps to scale to hundreds of millions of users. The new proof-of-stake mechanism will help secure the protocol and protect it against attacks. Moving from a proof-of-work blockchain to a proof-of-stake blockchain, Ethereum will require far less energy to run — making it more sustainable and better for the environment.

Who founded Ethereum?

Ethereum was founded by Vitalik Buterin, a Russian-Canadian programmer with an unheralded understanding of cryptography, economics and technology. Along with Buterin, there were a number of other prominent cryptocurrency developers that co-founded the project, including Polkadot's Gavin Wood, Cardano's Charles Hoskinson, and ConsenSys's Joseph Lubin. However, it's important to remember that Ethereum is an open-source project meaning that no single person or group owns the network, including any of the founders. Anyone can interact with the protocol and purchase part of the network by buying ETH.

What are smart contracts?

[Smart contracts](/learn/what-are-smart-contracts/) are what programmers use to build decentralised apps (Dapps) on the Ethereum blockchain. Much like a regular contract that lawyers use, they establish the terms of an agreement. The difference is that smart contracts are written using code and will be automatically executed without any middleman. Smart contracts make it possible for entire financial systems to be built on Ethereum, with enough security and functionality to provide a range of important services like lending and borrowing. They even make the NFT ecosystem possible, which we explore in our article about [what are NFTs](
