Ethereum is developed by a worldwide team of passionate developers for the Ethereum Foundation, a Swiss nonprofit organization.
Mission and Vision Statement
The Ethereum Foundation’s mission is to promote and support research, development and education to bring decentralized protocols and tools to the world that empower developers to produce next generation decentralized applications (dapps), and together build a more globally accessible, more free and more trustworthy Internet.
What is the Big Deal
Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third party interference.
"The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think
things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos."
~H. L. Mencken
