A schematic of a typical escrow transaction

Typically a type of transaction, an escrow is when one party makes a transaction with another party, using a third party to arbitrate the exchange.

4E History

"Escrow" was first introduce by Rob Crowell and Lyric Doshi in the 2007-2008 school year.

Escrows in Computer Science

Escrows are a useful tool in database technology. The study of escrow transactions in database executions and other data-based transactions requires much simulation and either a continuous muttering of "escrow" or loud proclamations of "ESCROW!" When this process is applied by course 6 seniors, usually some type of thesis is produced. These course 6 seniors usually require guidance by some manifestation of John Escrow.
