A good rundown about Ethereum
Ethereum’s co-founder Vitalik Buterin, a cryptocurrency researcher and programmer, launched a crowdsourcing campaign on August 2014 and raised $18 million from the selling of Ether (Ethereum’s digital tokens) to get their vision platform to be the “World Computer”. The idea is to have volunteers from around the world to run thousands of “nodes” and to not rely on any organization to take control of the transactions and information. The platform went live in July 2015.
Ethereum is an open software platform based on blockchain technology that enables developers to build and deploy all kinds of decentralized applications (“DApps”). DApps have been popularized by distributed ledger technologies (DLT) such as the Ethereum Blockchain, where DApps are often referred to as smart contracts. Smart contracts are applications that run on the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM).
In 2016, $50 million worth of Ether was stolen by an anonymous hacker which resulted in questions about its security. This caused a divided Ethereum community and it broke off into two blockchains: Ethereum (ETH) and Ethereum Classic (ETC).
Ethereum uses a "proof of stake" system that enhances the efficiency and security in validation. Proof of Stake (POS) validators place deposits or stake Ether for the ability to validate blocks and earn fees.
