Komodo’s deepest tech roots are built on the original Bitcoin protocol. This protocol included smart-contract technology at release (yr. 2009). The smart-contract features of the Bitcoin protocol are used extensively as a part of our decentralized exchange, BarterDEX.
The Bitcoin protocol’s smart-contract features are some of the most secure and battle-tested smart contracts in existence. However, they are not as user friendly as other smart-contract technologies, and they are also limited to only one programming language.
We intend to begin the creation of the Komodo smart-contract API later this year (2018).
