You don’t need to be a blockchain expert to set your pet up on a smart contract platform.
But if you’re one, you might want to get in touch with your pet’s guardian to get it set up for the smart contract.
That’s what happened when Peter Gadiot, a senior engineer at Ethereum, announced that pets will be able to interact with a smart token in their next-day pets app on the Ethereum blockchain.
Gadiot said:”As the pet owner, I need to know who’s in control of my pet, what the rules are, how the smart token is used, and how to update the token if it changes.”
Pet owners have been able to do this on Ethereum, but Gadiot explained that he wanted to give them the option to do it with smart pets too.
So, if you’ve been following along on Ethereum’s progress, you can check out Gadiot’s blog post for more details.
In the future, Gadiot will also be working on smart contracts for other types of applications.
If you’re wondering what he might be working towards, Gadot said: “Smart contracts can make it easier to make smart payments on a wide range of payment platforms.
Smart contracts can also be used to support smart contracts.”
This is good news for pet owners, as they can now get around their pet’s privacy concerns by letting the smart dog or cat do things for them.
Gadot also made clear that he was keen to get the smart pet-owner interface working in the next-gen pet-friendly pet-sitting app on Android.
If you’re looking to create a pet-safe and secure platform, you should check out smart contracts, as Gadiot outlined a couple of potential solutions:For example, if a pet needs to receive an order from their pet, it could use the smart contracts on the platform to send the order through the app, or send the pet an email message that says “send my order”.
Gadiot said that these types of transactions are currently “under investigation” by the platform.
It’s important to remember that these are smart contracts that can’t be executed directly by the pet.
It is, however, a great way for pet-owners to make payments to the pet that are more secure than using a paper check or credit card.
