About this event

Who is this event for? Beginners, Current Non-Blockchain Developers and the Curious

What are smart contracts: Computer code based on rules which determine how parties can interact with each other.

Where are smart contracts? The code is stored and executed on the blockchain

How do smart contracts work? They work by facilitating, verifying, and enforcing the negotiation of a transaction or an agreement.

Still Curious?  Join us to get an introduction to smart contracts using Solidity.

What is Solidity? A contract aligned language used for developing smart contracts.

What else should I know about solidity?  It was influenced by C++, Python, JavaScript and is designed to target the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM).

Facts about smart contracts:
                 🕶They remove the human factor.
                 🕶They send, receive, store and transmit.
                 🕶They cannot be modified once deployed 

Where can I learn more about Ethereum? Visit the Ethereum Foundation

What other networks support smart contracts? Cardano, Tezos, EOS and Tron 

A few examples of Smart Contracts in the Real World

👛dApps (decentralised finance)-Maker Dao, Uniswap, Crowdfunding Platforms
👛Supply Chain-Pharmaceuticals, Food, etc
