Chinese state blockchain project will provide the support of DAML smart contract language

The Blockchain Services Network (BSN), one of the most important blockchain infrastructure initiative in China, has united smart contract programming language.

Red Date Technology, a chief tech company involved in the BSN’s development, will provide the aid for DAML — a smart contract language made by American blockchain startup Digital Asset.

The companies’ officials mentioned that DAML will now be the “exclusive standard” for developing decentralized applications, or DApps, on top of the BSN.

The integration will enable the overall usage of  DApps regardless of the implemented blockchain network. This will made developers not to rewrite their smart contracts each time they deploy a certain application on BSN to a new platform on the basis of other type blockchain.

According to the announcement, Red Date Technology and Digital Asset aim to complete the first DAML pilot on the BSN by November 2020. The pilot consists of the deployment of a DAML application interoperating two blockchains — IBM’s Hyperledger Fabric and WeBank’s FISCO BCOS.

Based on the company’s officials info, in future the application will further be integrated into the main BSN architecture. It will be generally available for developers building with DAML on BSN in 2021.

Red Date Technology CEO Yifan metnioned that DAML will become the exclusive smart contract language of the BSN:

By selecting DAML as the exclusive smart contract language of the BSN itself, our developers will gain the choice of using one unifying smart contract language seamlessly and interoperably across every blockchain.”

Digital Asset co-founder and CEO Yuval Rooz mentioned that connecting global blockchain platforms is a “key to global adoption”.
