What is the Ethereum network and how many Ethereum networks are you familiar with?

Ethereum is a blockchain-based distributed computing platform featuring smart contract functionality that enables users to create and deploy their decentralized applications

There are three types of networks in Ethereum:

  • Live network (main network) - Smart contracts are deployed on the main network
  • Test network (like Ropsten, Kovan, Rinkeby) - Allow users to run their smart contracts with no fees before deploying it on the main network
  • Private network - Are those which are not connected to the main network. They run within the premises of the organization but carry the features of an Ethereum network.
