Brief introduction of ether (ETH)

Ethereum is a blockchain-based decentralized platform on which decentralized applications (Dapps) can be built. Ethereum’s appeal is that it is built in a way that enables developers to create smart contracts. Smart contracts are scripts that automatically execute tasks when certain conditions are met. For example, a smart contract could technically say, “pay Jane $10 if she submits a 1000 word article on goats by September 15, 2018,” and it would pay Jane once the conditions are met.

These smart contracts are executed by the Turing-complete Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), run by an international public network of nodes.

The cryptocurrency of the Ethereum network is called ether. Ether serves two different functions:

  • Compensate the mining full nodes that power its network. This keeps things running smoothly at an administrative level.
  • Pay people under smart contract conditions. This is what motivates users to work on the Ethereum platform.
