A smart contract is a self-executing contract in which the terms of the contract between a buyer and a seller are written directly in lines of code. The code and the contracts it contains exist on a decentralized and decentralized blockchain network. Code controls execution and transactions are traceable and irreversible.
Smart contracts were first proposed in 1994 by American computer scientist Nick Szabo, who invented a virtual currency called “bit gold” in 1998, ten years before Bitcoin was invented. In fact, there are often rumors that Szabo is the anonymous Bitcoin inventor Satoshi Nakamoto, but he has denied it.
