1. What is Ethereum (ETH)?

Ethereum is a decentralized platform that enables the creation and execution of smart contracts, which are self-executing contracts with the terms of the agreement between buyer and seller being directly written into lines of code. Smart contracts are run on Ethereum's blockchain, a decentralized and immutable ledger that allows for secure and transparent record-keeping. Because they run on a decentralized platform, smart contracts are not subject to downtime, censorship, fraud, or interference from third parties. Users can use ETH, Ethereum's native cryptocurrency, to interact with smart contracts and participate in various blockchain protocols. Additionally, Ethereum can be used as a means of payment for digital goods and services.

Poof offers a free storefront that you can integrate into your existing e-commerce store. This way, customers will be able to pay using their Ethereum wallets and you can receive payments in cryptocurrency!
