General Data and Information The Ethereum white paper was released by Vitalik Buterin in late 2013 after proposals to include a scripting language to enable decentralized applications (dApps) on the Bitcoin blockchain failed to gain traction. Ether is the native currency of the Ethereum blockchain and is used to compensate nodes for performing computations in the Turing-complete instruction set of the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). These instructions form the backbone of smart contracts and digital asset ownership which are recorded and issued upon the Ethereum blockchain. The development and governance of Ethereum relies upon the use of open-source Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIPs) whereby developers and the wider public can submit proposals to improve or change standards to the Ethereum platform. These proposals can affect all aspects of the Ethereum ecosystem, from core code changes and ERC token standards through to public informational resources. Interestingly, the current Ethereum (ETH) blockchain is a fork of the original Ethereum chain after a flaw in the DAO smart contract resulted in the theft of around 3.5 million ETH in 2016. The proposal to reverse the theft was approved by 97% of stakeholders, which resulted in a hard fork with Ethereum (ETH) blockchain reversing the theft, whilst the Ethereum Classic (ETC) chain continued unchanged from the original (preserving the concept of immutability of blockchains). Milestones Late 2013 - Ethereum White Paper released by Vitalik Buterin. July/August 2014 - Ethereum Crowdfunding to fund development. 30th July 2015 - Public launch (Version 1, codename “Frontier”) with 72 million coins premined to support development. October 2015 - First Ethereum Improvement Proposal (EIP-1) lays out the rules for governance and community consensus. 14th March 2016 - First “stable” release (Version 2, codename “Homestead”) with updates to security, transaction processing and pricing. June 2016 - The DAO hack. 20th July 2016 - ETH/ETC Hard Fork. 16th October 2017- Version 3 (codename “Metropolis: Byzantium”) with updates to the Ethereum Virtual Machine and smart contracts. 2017 - Ethereum Smart Contracts enable the funding of many crypto-currency projects via Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs). December 2017 - Cryptokitties brings out scaling problems in Ethereum, with the network being congested and transactions being delayed. 28th February 2019 - Version 3.5 (codename ”Metropolis: Constantinople”) implementing zk-SNARKS borrowed from ZCash. Utility Ethereum is the original and still dominant platform for issuing smart contracts that enable ICOs and decentralized applications (dApps) on a public blockchain via the Ethereum Virtual Machine and Solidity. Smart contracts and asset ownership are stored on a public blockchain which makes it possible to easily prove the veracity of contract claims. However, the downside of this public visibility is the public visibility of security holes or unintended consequences of loosely programmed smart contracts (a problem that reared its ugly head in the DAO hack). Ethereum forms the backbone of ICO launches, as projects are able to issue ERC-20 tokens to early investors which are redeemable project native tokens when the project mainnet goes live. These fungible tokens act as unique and transferable proofs of investment in the project. Non-fungible Ethereum tokens (ERC-721) are also able to be used to represent ownership of digital assets (such as Cryptokitties) or to act as tokens to represent ownership of real world assets. Significant Features - Designed as a Virtual Machine with a Turing-complete language means that Ethereum is the Swiss Army tool of blockchains. Highly flexible and adaptable, but perhaps not always the most efficient solution. - A comparatively large hashrate makes Ethereum one of the more secure blockchains in existence. - Solutions to scaling problems are being investigated, including sharding and a move to Proof of Stake consensus protocol. These changes are slated to be released under the codename Casper. - Alternative sidechain solutions (like MATIC) are also being released independently from the Ethereum core solutions. - Unlimited total supply. Average blocktime 10-20 seconds. - Transactions are pseduo-anonymous. Funds are sent address to address, but an owner identity can eventually attributed to an address given enough data and analysis. - Average Blocktime of 10-19 seconds; Total supply Unlimited; Proof of Work consensus based on ethash algorithm.

    He first discovered blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies through Bitcoin in 2011, and was immediately excited by the technology and its potential. He cofounded Bitcoin Magazine in September 2011, and after two and a half years looking at what the existing blockchain technology and applications had to offer, wrote the Ethereum white paper in November 2013. He now leads Ethereum's research team, working on future versions of the Ethereum protocol.
