This documentation is designed to help you build with Ethereum. It covers Ethereum as a concept, explains the Ethereum tech stack, and documents advanced topics for more complex applications and use cases.

This is an open-source community effort, so feel free to suggest new topics, add new content, and provide examples wherever you think it might be helpful. All documentation is editable via GitHub – if you're unsure how, follow these instructions.

Development modules

If this is your first attempt at Ethereum development, we recommend starting at the beginning and working your way through like a book.

Fundamental topics

  • Intro to Ethereum – A quick overview of Ethereum
  • Web2 vs Web3 – The fundamental differences that blockchain-based applications provide
  • Intro to dapps – An introduction to decentralized applications
  • The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) – The EVM handles all the computation on the Ethereum network
  • Blocks – The way transactions are batched to ensure state is synchronised across all actors
  • Accounts – Entities in the network that can hold a balance and send transactions
  • Transactions – Transfers and other actions that cause Ethereum's state to change
  • Block explorers – A way to read data about transactions, accounts, blocks and the network
  • Gas – Computational power required to process transactions, paid for in ETH by transaction senders
  • Mining – The way transactions are processed and blocks are created
  • Networks – Implementations of Ethereum including test networks
  • Nodes and clients – The individuals participating in the network and the software they run to verify transactions
