DAML smart contracts coming to Hyperledger Sawtooth
It has been a busy two weeks at Digital Asset… first, we announced that we have open-sourced DAML under the Apache 2.0 license and that the DAML SDK is available to all. Five days later, ISDA (the standards body for the derivatives market) announced that DAML is the exclusive smart contract language for their Common Domain Model, and we open-sourced a reference library and application. Next up, we announced that we’ve been working with the team at VMware to integrate DAML with their enterprise blockchain platform, VMware Blockchain.
Today, we’re delighted to share that we have been working with fellow Hyperledger members, Blockchain Technology Partners(BTP), to integrate the DAML runtime with Hyperledger Sawtooth! In this blog post, I’ll describe why we believe it’s important to architect a DLT application independently of the platform, why a new language is needed for smart contracts, and why we are working with BTP to integrate it with Hyperledger Sawtooth.
