What is Smart Contract?

In this article we will explain how Ethereum’s Smart Contracts work and what are the benefits. Have a pleasant reading.

To put it simply, “Smart Contracts” are the transactions that happen automatically in the event of the conditions agreed by two parties under certain rules.

As its name suggests, Smart Contracts, which are not very difficult transaction, actually have a very simple procedure. It has a simple two-phase transaction function: It works depending on the “If – It will”  function. In this way, it eliminates third parties, which builds the basis of trust.

This situation provides confidence for the parties. Because both sides are in a platform with the same conditions. One party has no chance of excelling over the other and turning the terms in favor. For this reason, it is a contract based on trust.

When Did It Appear?

The idea of ​​Smart Contract was first introduced in 1993 by Nick Szabo. Szabo is thought to be Satoshi Nakamoto by some people because of his Bit Gold idea.

If we talk about the architect of Smart Contract and its applications, ofcourse we cannot proceed without mentioning Vitalik Buterin, the founder of Ethereum platform. Buterin wants people to use Blockchain not only as a crypto currency but also in a variety of tasks. Software employees in this system get rewards, a fuel called “ether”, when they create a contract that can work anywhere in the world. In addition, machines pay ether when they use this system.
