Our very first event successfully organized at a wine bar in Singapore.
“Smart Contracts” were first proposed by cryptographer Nick Szabo in 1996. It’s “a computer protocol intended to facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract” according to Wikipedia, which has been closely associated with cryptocurrencies.
Today, Ethereum blockchain’s popularity enabled the concept to be utilized in a public environment.
Yet, there is a cloud of confusion around Smart Contracts.
In this session, we will discuss the misconceptions of Smart Contracts, and provide examples to facilitate easy understanding for our audience.
