What is a Smart Contract?

The definition of a smart contract is “a protocol for regulating contracts.”

A smart contract is a special protocol intended to contribute to, verify, or implement the negotiation or performance of the contract.

Essentially, you can write a protocol that’ll execute an agreement or verify a piece of information without needing a third party like a lawyer or mediator.
