Förderjahr 2018 / Project Call #13 / ProjektID: 3940 / Projekt: Pancakes
Smart contract projects rarely offer their solutions under an open source license. Pancakes aims to be a curated collection of open source smart contracts, resources and best practices for developing them.
The goal of Pancakes is to provide an open source collection of smart contract examples (Apache License 2.0) and platforms for software developers and companies. It includes well structured documentation and serves as a reference for the development of smart contracts with high quality standards, reliability and security.
The smart contract examples are based on best practices of blockchain infrastructure use cases like decentralized autonomous organisations (DAO’s), proof-of-existence and decentralized data storage.
Documentation includes curated resources, libraries, tools and more for the smart contract programming languages. Step-by-step instructions, images and screenshots will be part of the documentation.
What is a Smart Contract?
“A smart contract is a computer protocol intended to digitally facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract. Smart contracts allow the performance of credible transactions without third parties. These transactions are trackable and irreversible.”
"New institutions, and new ways to formalize the relationships that make up these institutions, are now made possible by the digital revolution. I call these new contracts "smart", because they are far more functional than their inanimate paper-based ancestors. No use of artificial intelligence is implied. A smart contract is a set of promises, specified in digital form, including protocols within which the parties perform on these promises."
We are excited to contribute and provide valuable content and resources in this space.
