Template:Infobox currency

Ethereum is a crypto platform which includes the ether cryptocurrency. Using a Turing-complete programming language the platform can be used to implement such things as digital contracts, a decentralized DNS, and a decentralized currency exchanges. The currency was initially described by Vitalik Buterin and others in late 2013 and early 2014,[1] and will be released in fall 2014. It is among a group of "next generation" (or "Bitcoin 2.0") platforms.[2]

Reception

The currency has received attention in Wired,[3][4] the Globe and Mail,[5] and Silicon Angle.[6] At CoinSummit in March 2014, Ethereum was represented by two speakers[7][8] and was covered in press about the event.[2] Primavera De Filippi will spoke on the legal implications of Ethereum at Harvard in April 2014.[9]
