A “proxy” style smart contract acts as a middle man between the user and the main smart contract for a given protocol. The proxy is in charge of forwarding transactions to and from the additional contract, which contains all the necessary logic and information. The main use case of a proxy smart contract is that it allows the main contract to be replaced and upgradable while the proxy is still set in place.
