What Is Ethereum?

Ethereum (Ether or ETH) is also called an alt coin because it is an alternative coin to the first ever cryptocurrency: Bitcoin. Bitcoin is the biggest cryptocurrency out there, and Ethereum is it’s runner up. They both function similarly as cryptocurrencies, but Ethereum has some of it’s own unique features.

Ethereum’s blockchain allows for the creation of smart contracts – a program that creates automatic contracts without a third party. The contracts have many advantages, like being able to execute it’s terms automatically if a certain condition is met.
