Smart Contract

smart contract is a computer program or protocol, typically running on a blockchain, that facilitates, verifies or executes business processes triggered by events, on-chain transactions or interactions with other smart contracts. A smart contract is a digital and autonomous representation of the traditional contract process, including contract formation, creation of enforceable and immutable rights and obligations, and execution of performance.
