Bitcoin is a form of electronic cash, invented by Satoshi Nakamoto. It is a decentralized digital currency without a central bank or single administrator, and allows user to transact directly from user-to-user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without the need for intermediaries. As the first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin currently holds the largest market capitalization and value right now.
Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third-party interference. As the second largest cryptocurrency just behind Bitcoin, though both are distributed public blockchain network, there are significant differences between those two, with the main difference being while the Bitcoin blockchain is used to track ownership of digital currency (bitcoins), the Ethereum blockchain focuses on running the programming code of any decentralized application (dApps).
