Nxt Ardor Feature Comparison
Nxt Forging vs. Ardor Bundling

Nxt and Ardor use ‘smart transactions’ not ‘smart contracts’. By leveraging these primitive transaction types, Nxt/ Ardor can be seen as an agile, base-layer protocol upon which developers without much prior knowledge in the cryptocurrency field can create a large range of secure decentralized services, apps, and even other currencies.

With smart transactions Nxt/ Ardor transactions do not require script processing or transaction input/output processing on the part of network nodes; scripts are already embedded, the code which is executed is actual software that runs in the node server.
