What is Ethereum?
Ethereum is the world’s programmable blockchain.
Launched in 2015, Ethereum is a global, open-source platform used for programmable money and decentralized applications that allow users have control over their own data.
Ethereum applications are diverse, spanning a range of industries and use-cases. They might be financial (like payments, lending, or insurance), games (like collectible cards, or virtual worlds), identity related (self-sovereign ID) or something entirely different. Each “web 3” application benefits from censorship resistance, decentralization, and security.
Ethereum is not controlled by anyone - it is built and maintained by thousands of people, companies, organizations and users all over the world.
