What is a Smart Contract?

A smart contract is a piece of code that autonomously facilitates and executes the terms of a contract or an agreement. Smart contracts are deployed to manage a transaction between two parties in a trustless manner, without the need for an intermediary. While the concept of smart contracts were first proposed in 1994 by Nick Szabo, they have more recently become a foundation for blockchain technology.
