Ethereum is an open-source, public, blockchain-based distributed ledger featuring smart contract (scripting) functionality. It enables developers to build blockchain applications with business & community logic, and is the foundation for thousands of Decentralized Applications. Smart Contracts and Decentralized Applications (also known as DApps) enable creators to build code, art, and virtual experiences without having to worry about downtime, fraud, control, or interference from other parties.
Ethereum paves the way for a new decentralized financial system based on a user-centric model, where all you need is a Web3 Wallet connection to access applications, products, and services that operate in a trustless manner, giving you more control over your money. Ethereum allows anyone to participate in this digital economy, without the involvement of third parties, or the risk of censorship.
