Waves Smart Contracts: Multisignature Example

In this tutorial, the use case supposes that there are 3 people in a team and they hold common funds for corporate purposes. It is convenient for the team to make a decision about the allocation of common funds according to the majority decision, and they use a multi-signature account to do this (smart account). They create an account and do SetScriptTransaction with the multisig account. The idea here of a smart account is the following: before the transaction is submitted for inclusion in the next block, the account checks if the transaction meets certain requirements, defined in a script. The script is attached to the account so the account can validate every transaction before confirming it.
