Smart Contracts

Smart Contracts

Lither chain has support for turing-complete languages through the EVM which makes it easy for the developers to create blockchain applications. The scripts written in a Turing-complete language are automatically executed in case a predefined event occurs. The Smart contract would run on the EVM on each and every node in the Lither chain network making it censorship resistant.

Lither chain smart contracts are written in Sollidity though other languages like Viper and LLL are supported. Solidity is a high-level language that gets run on the EVM after being translated to bytecode, a low-level language that the EVM understands.

Instead of using Solidity, Lither chain also supports writing the whole contract in low-level assembly language using opcode. Though, assembly language is far more complex and difficult to write and maintain.

Smart contracts in Lither chain permit trusted transactions and agreements to be carried out among disparate, anonymous parties without the need for a central authority, legal system, or external enforcement mechanism. They render transactions traceable, transparent, and irreversible.
