History[edit]

On June 25, 2015 the Moneybeat column from The Wall Street Journal wrote that the "acquisition of HyperLedger might raise eyebrows in the bitcoin community, where there is aversion to the idea that Wall Street might co-opt blockchain technology and strip it of its decentralized nature."[2][3][4]

Daml[edit]

Daml is an open-source smart contract language inspired by Haskell. It aids in modeling agreements and runs on blockchain platforms.[5]
