The ability to create a computerized system through the process of software development (using various types of programming languages) by writing informatic code to create computer or mobile-based applications, network infrastructure, and even entire blockchain network protocols is referred to as programmability. A blockchain network’s programmability enables the creation and automation of various mechanisms via smart contract technology and other similar methodologies. When compared to other database solutions, programmable blockchain networks can often offer much lower operational costs, better ease of use, more robust security, and enhanced openness — all of which can lead to significant savings in time, money, and manpower.
