Smart contract platforms allow developers to create fully decentralized dApps. Some of the more popular platforms are Ethereum, EOS, Cardano and Rootstock. In this article, we will go over these options and explain what’s unique about each one. Let’s get started!
What Is Ethereum?
Unlike Bitcoin, Ethereum is an ecosystem whose focus is to discover new use cases for blockchain technology. The Ethereum network is designed to allow anyone in the world to build dApps using smart contracts. These next generation applications can operate with no expected downtime, fraud, or interference by malicious actors. dApps are the main selling point of Ethereum and is the focus of the ETH network.
What Is Ethereum’s Solidity Language?
According to Solidity’s documentation:
“Solidity is an object-oriented, high-level language for implementing smart contracts. Smart contracts are programs which govern the behavior of accounts within the Ethereum state.”
