Smart Contract

Smart Contract

A smart contract is a piece of digital code that can execute predefined agreements between parties.

Can it be used for all types of agreements? No. It can only be used when the agreement can be configured, conditions can be verfied and actions can be executed digitally.

Smart Contract Advantages

The biggest advantage is you do NOT need to trust the party you are getting into the agreement with. As long as the agreement can be configured in a smart contract the parties themself can not alter it.

This can be particularly useful where middle-men are paid to facilitate trust between 2 parties.

Taxes. We hate 'em. Not because we pay a lot, but because we do not observe the same gain in value for us.

The lack of transparency and accountability in the process can make it easier for self-interest and corruption to creep in at various stages.

Smart contracts and decentralized ledgers can help in accounting for every tax dollar spent and make information easy to access for common people.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
