Back to Description and Comments

How do smart contracts in Ethereum work? How are operations conducted without middlemen? Do smart contracts work with external inputs or real-world events? Can we make sure that oracles are not corrupted?

These questions are from the MOOC 10.6 session, which took place on October 11th 2018. If you want early-access to talks and a chance to participate in the monthly live Q&As with Andreas, become a patron: https://www.patreon.com/aantonop
