Contract Superclass: Object Instance variables: versions


The idea of smart contracts goes way back to 1994. Term coined by cryptogrpher Nick Szabo, a widely credited with laying the groundwork for bitcoin. At core, these automated contracts work like any other computer program's if-then statements. They just happen to be doing it in a way that interacts with real-world assets. When a pre-programmed condition is triggered, the smart contract executes the corresponding contractual clause. (from FastCoLabs )
