What is Ethereum?

Like Bitcoin, Ethereum is an open-source platform underpinned by a blockchain in which every transaction is recorded publicly.

Ethereum comes with an internal cryptocurrency known as Ether. Ether can be transferred between accounts and used to compensate participants for computations performed on the network. The price of Ether has risen dramatically since inception from under $10 in 2016 to almost $400 in June 2017.
