ACM Queue Case Study Explores Distributed Ledgers and Blockchain in Financial Services Industry

August 22, 2019

Written by leading domain experts for software engineers, ACM Queue Case Studies provide an in-depth look at how software teams overcome specific challenges by implementing new technologies, adopting new practices, or a combination of both. Often through first-hand accounts, these pieces explore what the challenges were, the tools and techniques that were used to combat them, and the solution that was achieved.

In the latest ACM Queue Case Study, DAML: The Contract Language of Distributed Ledgers, Camille Fournier, the head of platform development for a leading New York City hedge fund, sits down with Shaul Kfir, co-founder of Digital Asset, to discuss the distributed-ledger technology, Digital Asset Modeling Language (DAML) his company developed. They cover how DAML puts blockchain technology to work for the financial services industry, particularly in distributed ledgers, the journey that brought DAML to where it is today, and what the future has in store for blockchain and the challenge of applying distributed ledgers.
