Ethereum is an open-source blockchain-based distributed computing platform. Developers using ETH are able to deploy smart contracts and decentralized applications on it, which function without the involvement of intermediaries or central servers.

Ethereum itself was launched in mid-2015. Ether, the cryptocurrency that fuels the Ethereum ecosystem, has since become the second-largest by market cap. Since ETH’s inception thousands of ERC-20 tokens have been launched on it, as well as a few popular decentralized cryptocurrency exchanges.

In the near future ETH is set to move from a Proof-of-Work consensus algorithm to a Proof-of-Stake one. On this page you’ll find the latest Ethereum-related news.
