Get an explanation of what a smart contract is and why they are a major technology innovation.
`- [Narrator] The real strength of Ethereum lies…in the creation of smart contracts.…One way to think of smart contracts is…that they're like a special kind of a class.…In this class, public functions can be called on externally.…And data will be stored in the blockchain.…One of the key differences between running this…and another programming environment, however,…is that when you call a write operations,…it will cost gas, which is Ethereum.…Keep in mind that some of these write operations…will involve sending money as well.…
Every contract will run in its own address,…its own box that stored in account.…This account will be similar to a wallet address…that you might have starting with zero x…and having some letters and numbers afterwards.…The original idea for Ethereum was essentially…to do some coding that enables you to put…money in holding bin,…and this holding bin would require…certain parameters to be met.…And once those parameters will be met,…it could then release the money to someone else…or to a number of different people…
