Ethereum is a decentralized blockchain platform and cryptocurrency created by Vitalik Buterin in 2015. It enables the development of smart contracts and decentralized applications (DApps) on its network. Ether (ETH) is Ethereum's native cryptocurrency, used for transactions and computational services within the network. Ethereum has played a pivotal role in the growth of the decentralized finance (DeFi) and non-fungible token (NFT) ecosystems.
