But what are smart contracts about?What is a smart contract?Smart contract is an agreement that involves two or more parties and is capable of executing and enforcing itself. All this is possible thanks to the source code with which the contract has been developed, which allows it to be executed in an automatic and autonomous way when it is necessary to apply the smart contract.

The same principle can also be extended to physical products with electronic controls or integrated microchips.? Financial services: Cryptocurrency obviously opens up a wide range of different use cases for smart contracts that would not otherwise be possible.
