Blockchain Technology Partners (BTP) unveiled general availability for its DAML incorporation, as accessible through its Sextant for DAML platform, allowing those working with Amazon Web Services’ Quantum Ledger Database (QLDB), to harness smart contracts on the platform.
However, prior to its Amazon QLDB launch, BTP’s Sextant for DAML boasted compatibility on Hyperledger Sawtooth, and AWS’ relational database service, Amazon Aurora.
The statement noted that Amazon QLDB caters to those who want to build on an immutable, but not necessarily decentralized ledger.
Kevin O’Donnell, the CTO of BTP, said in the statement:
“There are plenty of scenarios where there is a trusted centralised operator or a natural authority but there is still a requirement to ensure data is not tampered with.”
“DAML on Amazon QLDB addresses these use cases combining the expressive power of DAML with the resilience of AWS.”
It has been analyzed that Digital Asset, a blockchain software company, brought its smart contract language, Digital Asset Modeling Language, or DAML, into the open-sourced world in April 2019.
Later that same month, the firm announced Hyperledger Sawtooth integration on April 16, with AWS Aurora integration following in June.
Thus, Shaul Kfir, the Co-Founder and CTO of Digital Asset said:
“BTP’s Sextant for DAML with QLDB makes it seamless to run distributed applications without the operational overhead or compromising security.”
