We are delighted to have expanded our longstanding and mutually supportive partnership to include DAML for Corda. We are confident that GFT’s world-class customer support and technical expertise will help enterprises use DAML to unlock the power of Corda, without getting locked in.”
Marika Lulay, CEO at GFT concluded, “Never before have firms been under as much pressure as they are today to deliver on their digital transformation objectives. We believe this extension of our partnership with Digital Asset adds another important dimension to our business and for our globally diverse client base. Being an integral part of the DAML for Corda initiative is a perfect example of our unrelenting commitment to being at the forefront of delivering positive change for our shared clients. We look forward to doing great things together with Digital Asset in the future.”
