Smart Contracts and Blockchain Formally Recognized in Iowa


As per the update on Mar 29, the bill gained Senate approval earlier this month. With the bill’s express passing, the use of smart contracts—which is central to innovations like DeFi and the wildly popular NFTs, could open up more opportunities.


Precisely, the use of smart contracts in binding business terms and other negotiations would likely explode in popularity due to the accompanying clarity.


Besides, it is a step in the right direction, especially when crypto continues to find widespread adoption but with active obstacles slowing down progress due to the absence of fitting regulations.
