About Blockchains

What is Hedera?

Hedera operates as a public network employing the hashgraph consensus algorithm for rapid and secure transaction validation. Governed by a council of esteemed organizations, Hedera ensures consistent progress and decentralization. Distinguished by its high throughput, security, and fair transaction ordering, Hedera strives to establish a trust layer for the internet.

What is Ethereum?

Ethereum emerges as a decentralized, open-source blockchain platform empowering developers to craft and deploy smart contracts alongside dApps. Pioneering the smart contract concept, Ethereum enables self-executing agreements with terms directly encoded into its blockchain, eliminating the need for intermediaries. Additionally, Ethereum serves as a hub for the creation and exchange of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) and various digital assets. Its intrinsic cryptocurrency, Ether (ETH), facilitates network transactions and incentivizes miners to uphold network security. Ethereum's evolution to Ethereum 2.0 introduces a proof-of-stake (PoS) mechanism, aiming to enhance scalability and energy efficiency.
