Ethereum News: Ethereum is a public, blockchain-based, open-source computing platform that is responsible for making smart contracts accessible. It was created and proposed by Vitalik Buterin back in 2013. After a successful crowdsale, the project went live on July 30th 2015, revolutionizing the whole cryptocurrency industry and commercialized Initial Coin Offering crowdfundings, by simplifying the process with smart contracts. The Ethereum platform brings you Ethereum news and allows the development of Decentralized Applications (DApps) and serves also as a community for programmers and innovation.
Ethereum introduced their cryptocurrency – Ether (ETH), which is the second largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization. Although second by market cap, Ethereum is arguably the most impactful cryptocurrency, because it had the biggest impact on the whole digital economy. Ethereum uses an improved version of Satoshi Nakamoto’s Proof-of-Work (PoW) algorithm, but as Ethereum makes further progress on its whitepaper, it will switch to Proof-of-Stake (PoS) so it can complete its cycle and make the whole system self-sufficient.
