Ethereum is an open-source, public, blockchain-based distributed computing platform featuring smart contract (scripting) functionality. Ethereum was proposed in late 2013 by Vitalik Buterin, a cryptocurrency researcher, and programmer. The system went live on 30 July 2015. There are many aspects of Ethererum that could outperform bitcoin, such as scalability, cost, speed.
