Welcome to The Ethereum Wiki

TheEthereum.wiki stands as the premier community-run repository for information on Ethereum, created by enthusiasts seeking to establish a definitive resource for both new and seasoned users. By crowdsourcing knowledge, we aim to deliver precise, up-to-date insights into Ethereum’s capabilities and ecosystem encompassing decentralized finance, autonomous organizations, NFTs, and more.

The Ethereum network pioneers smart contract functionality, serving as a decentralized global platform for self-executing agreements encoded into lines of code. By combining unwavering reliability with censorship resistance, Ethereum empowers developers to create decentralized applications and organizations.

Following the milestone Merge upgrade in September 2022, Ethereum transitioned from an energy-intensive Proof of Work consensus model to a more efficient Proof of Stake system. This preserves the network’s security while dramatically improving sustainability through a distributed network of validator nodes. The number of nodes fluctuates organically, exemplifying the scalable and adaptive nature of Ethereum.

Leveraging these innovations, Ethereum aims to establish novel financial primitives, assets, markets, and business models without centralized oversight. TheEthereum.wiki serves as a leading community-managed resource assisting both new and experienced users in understanding this rapidly evolving ecosystem. Contributors collaborate to deliver accurate, up-to-date insights on Ethereum’s technological capabilities and real-world applications.
