Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts, applications that run exactly as programmed without possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third party interference.
Go Ethereum is one of the three original implementations (along with C++ and Python) of the Ethereum protocol. It is written in Go, fully open source and licensed under the GNU LGPL v3.
Go Ethereum is available either as a standalone client called Geth that you can install on pretty much any operating system, or as a library that you can embed in your Go, Android or iOS projects.
