Introduced in April 2016, DAML is an expressive language designed for financial institutions to model and execute agreements through distributed ledger technology (DLT).

According to Digital Asset’s blog, DAML is similar to a smart contract language in many ways, but it is optimized for usage in a private execution environment rather than in an open execution environment.

Along with the announcement, Digital Asset also released the open availability of the DAML software development kit (SDK) Developer Preview, allowing any developer to start using DAML today.

According to the press release, the DAML SDK was previously available as part of a private beta developer program that provided early access to developers at a number of major global financial firms such as Accenture, the Australian Securities Exchange, BNP Paribas, Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing, Singapore Exchange, Nomura Research Institute and others.
