Smart Contracts : agreement on how things are done
Definition
A smart contract is an agreement whose execution
is both automated and enforceable.
• The actual “transaction” among parties is
expressed through and independently executed
by computer code, no party can block it or
otherwise tamper with.
• It constitutes legally binding rights and
obligations of the involved parties.
Smart contracts
Not smart, not a contract… but it’s code and it runs on the blockchain.
Smart contracts
Just code, a workflow or an entire contract? Is code law or not?
What could it be now?

• Conclusion
“I’m often asked at conferences and workshops
what I consider to be Bitcoin’s greatest challenge in
the future. My answer is always the same: avoiding
catastrophic software bugs,” he wrote.
<…>
Part of the problem was that Bitcoin ABC did not
have a responsible disclosure policy. Additionally,
Fields could not find publicly available encryption
keys for the lead developers at Bitcoin ABC to
whom he could send encrypted message informing
them of the vulnerability without risking it being
viewed by others.
“Because I used my name for the disclosure, hard
proof would exist that I had the knowledge and
means to attack the network. I would have no way
to prove that I was not the attacker. Then consider
that, collectively, billions of dollars could have been
lost as a result of this exploit. People have been
killed for much less,” wrote Fields.
What is “the code”? The protocol / source code?
- Usually open source (quite often under MIT license, all caps
clause (“THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" etc”))
- (Un)known developers (researchers, policy developers, coders,
code reviewers, etc.)
- Vetted by the community (but still)
What is “the code”? The smart contract?
- Not always readable
- Where the money is made (DAO, cryptokitties,…)
- (Un)known developers
- Tests on Ethereum revealed horrendous quality
What is “the code”? The blockchain itself?
- Data generated by protocol or smart contracts
- Unreadable (but not untinkerable) for developers
- No liability for what people actually do with the code?
At least one regulator is attempting to provide clarity regarding the potential liability of actors
who violate regulations through the use of smart contracts. On October 16, 2018,
Commissioner Brian Quintenz of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission
explained his belief.
Commissioner Quintenz identified the parties essential to the functioning of the smart
contract blockchain ecosystem:
1. the core developers of the blockchain software;
2. the miners that validate transactions;
3. the developers of the smart contract applications; and
4. users of the smart contracts.
To ascertain the culpability of the smart contract code developers, the “appropriate question is
whether these code developers
- could reasonably foresee,
- at the time they created the code, that it would likely
- be used by U.S. persons in a manner
- violative of CFTC regulations.”
If such a use is foreseeable, Commissioner Quintenz believes that a “strong case could be
made that the code developers aided and abetted violations of CFTC regulations.”

  • 31. Definition A smart contract is an agreement whose execution is both automated and enforceable. • The actual “transaction” among parties is expressed through and independently executed by computer code, no party can block it or otherwise tamper with. • It constitutes legally binding rights and obligations of the involved parties. Smart contracts Not smart, not a contract… but it’s code and it runs on the blockchain.

  • 44. “I’m often asked at conferences and workshops what I consider to be Bitcoin’s greatest challenge in the future. My answer is always the same: avoiding catastrophic software bugs,” he wrote. <…> Part of the problem was that Bitcoin ABC did not have a responsible disclosure policy. Additionally, Fields could not find publicly available encryption keys for the lead developers at Bitcoin ABC to whom he could send encrypted message informing them of the vulnerability without risking it being viewed by others. “Because I used my name for the disclosure, hard proof would exist that I had the knowledge and means to attack the network. I would have no way to prove that I was not the attacker. Then consider that, collectively, billions of dollars could have been lost as a result of this exploit. People have been killed for much less,” wrote Fields.
  • 45. What is “the code”? The protocol / source code? - Usually open source (quite often under MIT license, all caps clause (“THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" etc”)) - (Un)known developers (researchers, policy developers, coders, code reviewers, etc.) - Vetted by the community (but still) What is “the code”? The smart contract? - Not always readable - Where the money is made (DAO, cryptokitties,…) - (Un)known developers - Tests on Ethereum revealed horrendous quality What is “the code”? The blockchain itself? - Data generated by protocol or smart contracts - Unreadable (but not untinkerable) for developers - No liability for what people actually do with the code?
  • 46. At least one regulator is attempting to provide clarity regarding the potential liability of actors who violate regulations through the use of smart contracts. On October 16, 2018, Commissioner Brian Quintenz of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission explained his belief. Commissioner Quintenz identified the parties essential to the functioning of the smart contract blockchain ecosystem: 1. the core developers of the blockchain software; 2. the miners that validate transactions; 3. the developers of the smart contract applications; and 4. users of the smart contracts.
  • 47. To ascertain the culpability of the smart contract code developers, the “appropriate question is whether these code developers - could reasonably foresee, - at the time they created the code, that it would likely - be used by U.S. persons in a manner - violative of CFTC regulations.” If such a use is foreseeable, Commissioner Quintenz believes that a “strong case could be made that the code developers aided and abetted violations of CFTC regulations.”
