Ethereum is the foundation for a new era of the internet: one with built-in money and payments.
An internet in which users own their data and your apps do not spy on you or steal from you.
Everyone has access to an open financial system via the internet.
An internet based on neutral, open-access infrastructure that is not controlled by any company or individual.
However, unlike other blockchains, Ethereum is capable of much more. Because Ethereum is programmable, developers can use it to create new types of applications.
These decentralised applications (also known as "dapps") benefit from cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. They can be trusted, which means that once "uploaded" to Ethereum, they will always function as expected. They can be decentralised, which means they are not controlled by a single entity or person.
