The DAML for Digital Asset will link various blockchains to a national DLT project in China.
Red Date Technology, a major tech company involved in the BSN’s development, will add support for DAML — a smart contract language developed by American blockchain startup Digital Asset.
Announcing the news on Sept. 14, the companies’ executives said that DAML will now be the “exclusive standard” for developing decentralized applications, or DApps, on top of the BSN.
The integration will allow DApps to interoperable regardless of the blockchain network being implemented. As such, developers would not have to rewrite their smart contracts each time they deploy to a new platform based on another blockchain a certain application on BSN.
Digital Asset co-founder and CEO Yuval Rooz emphasized that connecting global blockchain platforms is a “key to global adoption,” stating:
“There are multiple blockchain platforms available and more coming to market […] BSN already has incredible traction with more than 130 nodes in production across China. By integrating with DAML, the BSN will have one unified language for applications and a cutting-edge interoperability protocol to further enable this vision.”
WeBank — a private Chinese neobank founded by Tencent — began exploring the incorporation of the DAML language for its blockchain consortium FISCO BCOS earlier this year.
