Welcome to Ethereum

Ethereum is the community-run technology powering the cryptocurrency ether (ETH) and thousands of decentralized applications.

Explore Ethereum

Get started

ethereum.org is your portal into the world of Ethereum. The tech is new and ever-evolving – it helps to have a guide. Here's what we recommend you do if you want to dive in.

Start building

If you want to start coding with Ethereum, we have documentation, tutorials, and more in our developer portal.

What is Ethereum?

Ethereum is a technology that's home to digital money, global payments, and applications. The community has built a booming digital economy, bold new ways for creators to earn online, and so much more. It's open to everyone, wherever you are in the world – all you need is the internet.

A fairer financial system

Today, billions of people can’t open bank accounts, others have their payments blocked. Ethereum's decentralized finance (DeFi) system never sleeps or discriminates. With just an internet connection, you can send, receive, borrow, earn interest, and even stream funds anywhere in the world.

The internet of assets

Ethereum isn't just for digital money. Anything you can own can be represented, traded and put to use as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). You can tokenise your art and get royalties automatically every time it's re-sold. Or use a token for something you own to take out a loan. The possibilities are growing all the time.

An open internet

Today, we gain access to 'free' internet services by giving up control of our personal data. Ethereum services are open by default – you just need a wallet. These are free and easy to set up, controlled by you, and work without any personal info.

Code examples
Your own bank
You can build a bank run by logic you've programmed.
Your own currency
You can create tokens that you can transfer and use across applications.
A JavaScript Ethereum wallet
You can use existing languages to interact with Ethereum and other applications.
An open, permissionless DNS
You can reimagine existing services as decentralized, open applications.

A new frontier for development

Ethereum and its apps are transparent and open source. You can fork code and re-use functionality others have already built. If you don't want to learn a new language you can just interact with open-sourced code using JavaScript and other existing languages.
