Descrizione

Although the interest around smart contracts is generally defined in a narrow way, centered in applications terms such as Bitcoin contracts, Ethereum contracts or Smart Contracts Bitcoin, or even just in technical trading aspects such as Ethereum price, in reality the field is more diverse. A number of companies and non profit organizations are serving governments, institutional and private clients implementing distributed ledger technology. In this accessible book, we present the detailed corporate profile of several smart contracts companies, their trading and social network volumes, and provide a gentle introduction to smart contracts examples. ECONOMY MONITOR Guide to SMART CONTRACTS offers a demonstrably effective way to diversify risk when investing in cryptocurrency securities by focusing on companies that are offering products with actual demand in the real economy. The book is also useful for managers seeking to learn about vendors of fintech, blockchain, and computable contracts technology.

Introduction

Some investors feel uneasy with the volatility characteristics commonly associated with cryptocurrencies –e.g As of January 4th Bitcoin (BTC) was trading less than $70 short of its all-time high of $1,165.89 of November 30th 2013, two weeks before the price was just under $800, and then on January the 9th , it was trading at $903.81. Luckily, there are alternatives using the same underlying technology (distributed shared ledgers, or blockchains) and variants of it, with applications and actual demand in the financial sector and the real economy- and, therefore better shielded from speculation. Notably, smart contracts companies have emerged as interesting investments for venture capital, retail and institutional investors.

Smart contracts are not without risk: the most widely used platform, Ethereum (ETH), showed fluctuations of over $275M in markep cap between June 12th and July 10th 2016, this in relation to a shareholder attack on one of its funds, the DAO –which in turn lost over $50M. This book provides context into the smarts contract opportunity, as well as the associated risks and uncertainty due to the novelty of the technology.

The following companies are in the smart contract business¹:
