Learn how the Ethereum network runs using nodes that process the blockchain and run the Ethereum Virtual Machine or EVM that executes smart contracts.
- [Narrator] Ethereum is a blockchain that is in many ways…like Bitcoin meaning anyone can download it…and run the blockchain processing software…and even download a full node which contains…all the the blocks of the blockchain.…But what really sets Ethereum apart…is the inclusion of the Ethereum virtual machine…to process smart contracts.…The heart of Ethereum's power is this EVM.…The EVM is co-located with the full Ethereum blockchain…so anyone who downloads and runs a node…will also by default be running the EVM.…
One way to think of the EVM is that…it's like having a full LAMP or…MEAN Stack at your disposal.…The difference is the Ethereum blockchain is…what's going to store the data instead…of the database, whereas the EVM is the app server…that's going to handle processing smart contracts…and the programming functionality.…There are other services that can be available…through these nodes including Swarm for hosting files…and Whisper for messaging and DApps.…Every Ethereum node runs the EVM.…
