Ethereum(ETH)

Ethereum is an open-source software platform that lets programmers build and deploy decentralized applications on top of the blockchain. Ether (ETH) is the cryptocurrency that is used to power applications build on the Ethereum platform. Think Ethereum as the "World Computer" where all the blockchain apps run on and Ether as the fuel that powers those apps.

About Product
Ethereum might be the first of its kind but since it's release many similar and successful products are created. However, Ethereum is still the most used and adapted dapp platform. Including its token economy, more than half of the value in cryptocurrencies is transferred over ETH. This product is far from perfect, but it is most tested, used and experimented one. It is evolving with the ecosystem.

About Execution
Ethereum has proven itself over the years. Now it has more value because of all the time and resources spent on it. All the apps and tokens depend on the main platform. Ethereum had its fair share of issues and many tradeoffs to choose from.
Editor's note

Vitalik and the team had a clear vision for the blockchain system since Ethereum's inception. From an engineering point of view Turing complete systems were the way to make a sustainable development environment and ICO's had a huge potential. However 5 years ago not many people understood that. So having this long-term vision and building the first product for the market paid off. Blockchain ecosystem might gain momentum again when Ethereum provides a scalability solution or an alternative platform becomes widely adopted.
