The company's main product is the open source smart contract language DAML, which works with both blockchains and centralized databases. The solution is being used by the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), banking giant BNP Paribas, Hong Kong financial holding company Exchanges and Clearing and tech firm Change Healthcare. Digital Asset CEO Yuval Rooz said:
"Without Daml, workflows cannot be shared privately and securely within and across organizations, leading to inconsistent data, expensive to adapt architectures, and a lack of common interfaces."
