Blockchain's transparent and decentralized nature enables the development of a non-refutable, and unbreakable record of data which makes the blockchain network useful for many applications. According to Mr. R. Gandhi, Former Deputy Governor of RBI, Blockchain technology is the disruptive innovation for the financial business applications. Asmart contract is an executable code that runs on the blockchain to facilitate, execute and enforce an agreement between untrusted parties without the involvement of a trusted third party.
