Identity in Daml

In this post we will show that Daml’s identity model is able to provide the same degree of security as systems built on a user experience that focuses almost exclusively on cryptographic identity while also providing a superior user experience and better flexibility in terms of deployment options: Decentralized – Entities can run ledger nodes,

E2E Property Rentals Written in Daml

Improving renting Renting a property is still quite a manual and cumbersome process because different actors have different views of it and can’t fully trust each other, so paperwork is put in place to mitigate risks.

This protects data in transit and only authorised clients can connect.  An application will need to issue DAML commands over the secure connection and retrieve the

tl;dr If you care about performance, use DAML’s builtin syntax for accessing record fields. Introduction I guess it is no secret that I’m not the biggest fan of lenses, particularly not in DAML. I wouldn’t go as far as saying that lenses, prisms, and the other optics make my eyes bleed but there are definitely better
