The Ethereum blockchain was launched in 2014 following an initial offering of approximately 60 million Ether (ETH). Additional Ether are released through a mining process, similar to Bitcoin. The Ethereum system went live in July 2015.

Ethereum is a decentralized platform for building applications that run smart contracts, executable functions that run exactly as programmed without any third party interference. ETH is used as a form of payment for transaction fees and to perform actions, such as creating smart contracts and building decentralized applications.
