Definition: Ethereum addresses

Ethereum has two types of addresses. The first is the "externally owned account" (EOA), which is only used to transfer ether (ETH). The second is the "contract account," and transactions targeting contract accounts cause the smart contract to execute functions. If the data sent to a contract cause an error, any actions taken by the contract to that point are reversed, although the gas fee is still collected. See Ethereum.
