Smart contracts play a key role in the cryptocurrency industry moving forward. This new technology will allow for autonomous projects to exist on compatible blockchains. Zilliqa has recently integrated its smart contract technology, but it is also the first chain to offer smart contracts based on sharding. A few key notes are to be made in this regard.
It is always good to see the overall ecosystem grow and expand. Smart contracts are deployed on a number of different blockchains in this day and age. However, there is always room for more competition. This is especially true when the project in question uses a different layer of scaling to ensure its smart contract technology is viable now and in the future.
