Yes, Bitcoin Is A Smart Contract Platform

What is a smart contract?

This is a question that, these days, has become impossible to answer without starting the digital equivalent of a bar fight. The minute that term is thrown out in a conversation, most people immediately think “Ethereum,” or “Solana,” or “TRON” or any of these decentralized in name only (DINO) projects that have popped up over the years since the inception of Bitcoin.

Most new or uninformed people in this ecosystem probably think that the term “smart contract” was coined by projects like Ethereum, and that these projects literally invented them.
