Transactions

Smart contracts are user-defined transactions.

A transaction takes place between two or more parties and the data exchange is recorded on the ledger.

etch supports a number of transactions commonly supported by cryptographic ledgers.

Currently, these are built-in transaction types executed in Python which have relatively fixed data storage requirements. For example:

  • Transaction
  • Deed
  • Wealth

Note

Coming soon: support for smart contract transaction types.
