Ethereum is an open-source software platform which is based on blockchain technology for handling smart contracts and cryptocurrency trading without any intervention of a third party or governmental entity.

Like Bitcoin, Ethereum is not being controlled by any group or individual, and nobody owns it.

Ethereum uses Ether as a sort of fuel. Ether is a piece of code, acting as a sort of payment made by Ethereum clients to the machines executing the requested operations.
