A Next-Generation Smart Contract and Decentralized Application Platform

  title={A Next-Generation Smart Contract and Decentralized Application Platform},
  author={Vitalik Buterin},
When Satoshi Nakamoto first set the Bitcoin blockchain into motion in January 2009, he was simultaneously introducing two radical and untested concepts. The first is the "bitcoin", a decentralized peer-to-peer online currency that maintains a value without any backing, intrinsic value or central issuer. So far, the "bitcoin" as a currency unit has taken up the bulk of the public attention, both in terms of the political aspects of a currency without a central bank and its extreme upward and… Expand
Applications of smart-contracts and smart-property utilizing blockchains
Bitcoin, one of many cryptocurrencies, has in the last couple of years grown into a multi billion dollar industry. It is fully decentralized and utilizes a public ledger (blockchain), which allowsExpand
The road to the blockchain technology: Concept and types
