What Is Ethereum
These apps run on a custom built blockchain, an enormously powerful shared global infrastructure that can move value around and represent the ownership of property.
This enables developers to create markets, store registries of debts or promises, move funds in accordance with instructions given long in the past (like a will or a futures contract) and many other things that have not been invented yet, all without a middleman or counterparty risk.
The project was bootstrapped via an ether presale in August 2014 by fans all around the world. It is developed by the ETH Foundation, a Swiss non-profit, with contributions from great minds across the globe.
The ETH Wallet is a gateway to decentralized applications on the ETH blockchain. It allows you to hold and secure ether and other crypto-assets built on ETH, as well as write, deploy and use smart contracts.
