Smart contract

A self-executing contract with the terms of agreement between two or more parties directly written into lines of code. The code controls the execution, and transactions are trackable and irreversible, making smart contracts very efficient and cost-effective.

Proof of Work (PoW)

A consensus mechanism that requires participants to perform an extensive amount of computational work in order to solve a mathematical puzzle to validate transactions and prevent anybody from cheating the system.
