Scalability is a pretty wide topic. Can you explain which scalability properties you are interested in?

Do you agree with this definition of scalability for DAML contracts and DAML language?

DAML smart contracts are designed to be scalable. The DAML language itself provides features that allow for efficient and scalable execution of smart contracts on distributed ledger technology (DLT) platforms.

One of the key design principles of DAML is that it is a “safe-by-default” programming language. This means that the language is designed to prevent common programming errors that can lead to scalability issues, such as race conditions, deadlocks, and other concurrency-related bugs. By eliminating these types of errors, DAML helps ensure that smart contracts can scale effectively and efficiently.

In addition to its safety features, DAML also provides several other features that help make smart contracts more scalable. For example, DAML provides a flexible data model that allows for complex data structures and relationships between data objects, making it easier to build complex, scalable applications. DAML also supports modular design patterns, allowing developers to break complex contracts into smaller, more manageable pieces that can be executed in parallel.

DAML is platform-agnostic, meaning that it can be executed on a wide range of DLT platforms, including Hyperledger Fabric, Corda, and Digital Asset’s own platform. This allows developers to choose the platform that best fits their scalability requirements and allows for easy migration between platforms as needs change over time
