Ethereum is a world computer running on 7693+ computer nodes distributed worldwide. The Ethereum network runs on a blockchain secured by miners executing a Proof of Work consensus algorithm, with plans to move to a Proof of Stake consensus algorithm.

Small programs called smart contracts are run in exactly the same way on each of these nodes.
