Ethereum (Overview)

About

Ethereum is the first Turing-complete cryptocurrency that uses Ether as fuel to incentivise its network. The idea is the brainchild of Vitalik Buterin. The project received US$18million worth of bitcoins during its crowdsale in August 2014.

It uses the Ethash mining algorithm, which is based off the Dagger-Hashimoto algorithm.
