What is Ethereum and why should you care?

In 2013, a computer programmer named Vitalik Buterin published a white paper titled “A Next Generation Smart Contract & Decentralized Application Platform”.

The title may not be particularly catchy, but this white paper introduced Ethereum and now Ether, its native token.

Most often, people use Ethereum to talk about Ether. Ethereum is the underlying technology, while Ether is the platform-bound token. This is the principle of most crypto projects: they are always accompanied by a native token.

Ether is now the second largest cryptocurrency in the world behind bitcoin.
