Coding smart contracts securely with Clojure and DAML
Smart contracts help you exchange money, property, shares, or anything of value in a transparent, conflict-free way while avoiding the services of a middleman. Smart contracts are found in crypto-currencies, distributed ledgers and many other aspects of Blockchain
Smart Contracts facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of credible transactions without third parties. These transactions are traceable and irreversible.
Contractual clauses may be made partially or fully self-executing, self-enforcing, or both.
The aim of smart contracts is to provide security that is superior to traditional contract law and to reduce other transaction costs associated with contracting. Various crypto-currencies have implemented types of smart contracts.
