 Heines, R. (2017): Blockchain Technology Applications: A Conceptual Framework from a Supply Chain Perspective
 ISO Standard
The term smart contract was especially defined by the distributed system Ethereum . A smart contract is a computer program stored in a distributed ledger system, where the result of each execution of the program is recorded in the ledger.
Blockchain technology enables a contract to be concluded securely without requiring verification by a third party . A smart contract can create a legally enforceable obligation under the laws of an applicable jurisdiction . By securely excluding manipulation, processes defined in the smart contract can be independently triggered and executed. As a result, Smart contracts guarantee independence, decentralization and autonomy .
