Use Cases

Smarter Contract’s expert determination can prevent and resolve disputes in virtually any contract

Professional Malpractice

The validity of malpractice claims can be resolved quickly and conclusively by a licensed architect.  If the defined standard of care is met, no liability or expense is incurred.


If an employee claims wrongful termination, that matter can be determined with finality by an employment expert.  Meritless complaints disappear.

Service Contracts

Clients and service providers will know that payment will occur if and only if contractual requirements are met, and with the possibility of partial payment.

Crowdfunding with Integrity

Funders will believe that promoters will be penalized for dishonesty and will satisfy the promises they make because they will be penalized for non-compliance.


Sellers must not fear fraudulent customer chargebacks that they cannot win. Transaction fees should only be applied to sellers or buyers who are at fault.

High value Assets

Buyers require options to pay over time. Sellers will easily recover their assets if the purchase price is to be paid over time, but is underpaid.
