Does Ethereum Use RPC?

Yes, Ethereum uses RPC. Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of fraud or third party interference.

NOTE: Warning: Ethereum does use Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) as a communication protocol to interact with Ethereum-based applications and services, but it is not the only way. Other forms of communication such as JSON-RPC, Web3, and IPC are also available and should be considered when interacting with Ethereum. In addition, there can be security risks associated with using RPC and appropriate measures should be taken to ensure the safety of any transactions conducted through these protocols.

These apps run on a custom built blockchain, an enormously powerful shared global infrastructure that can move value around and represent the ownership of property. This enables developers to create markets, store registries of debts or promises, move funds in accordance with instructions given long in the past (like a will or a futures contract) and many other things that have not been invented yet, all without a middleman or counterparty risk.

The project was bootstrapped via an ether presale in August 2014 by fans all around the world. It is developed by the Ethereum Foundation, a Swiss non-profit, with contributions from great minds across the globe.
