Threads are an automation primitive for Solana developers. Just as traditional applications use threads to execute instructions on a computer, smart-contracts can use Clockwork threads to execute a series of instructions on Solana. To create a thread, developers must provided two critical pieces of information:
A trigger – Some scenario or condition that will gate execution and can verified by a smart-contract.
A set of instructions – These are instructions that will be executed. They can be either statically defined or built dynamically at runtime.
