Abstract

The article challenges the current definitions of "smart contract" which present as a "contract" what is simply an automated form of its performance. And points out that they are "smart" only from the economic point of view of one side of the transaction, which takes advantage of its informational advantage. "Granular norms", instead, are quite common in advanced capitalist markets but increasingly raise concerns about their possible collision with the principle of non-discrimination, especially in the case of consumer goods and services.
