I know that there's no timer in other smart contracts and even this is not possible in regular blockchains. But, EOS uses C++, and they already did lots stuffs which makes smart contracts more usable.

Is there any possibility to implement timers?


If you are looking for a solution to run a transaction in a later time after pushing the transaction, then deferred transaction is what you are looking for


I am after knowing this too. Not deferred transactions but a looped timer

Timer(6000ms){ Update tables } Without having an external script running Calltocontract(){ Run update } As that could fail and leave hours of no update I guess only one way to find out though and that’s to try it

Need to perform automatic smart contract function execution

This is how others do it
