Cardano developers launch Marlowe to ease smart contract creation

Cardano's new toolkit, Marlowe, facilitates smart contract creation, making it accessible for developers and non-coders alike.

Marlowe: Cardano's Tool for Simplified Smart Contract Creation.

Input Output Global, the team behind Cardano, has unveiled Marlowe, a new toolkit aimed at simplifying the creation of smart contracts within the Cardano ecosystem. The tool is designed to make it easier for both developers and non-coders to create, test, and deploy smart contracts.

Marlowe comes packed with numerous features, such as customizable templates that can be reused, a built-in simulator for contract testing, easy setup, and potent APIs. It has been externally tested to ensure its robustness and reliability.

The developers announced a partnership with TxPipe during a statement in Lisbon, providing access to the Marlowe Runtime with minimal setup through Demeter Run. Demeter is a platform that grants access to Cardano’s blockchain technology without the need for maintaining expensive infrastructure.

Omer Hussain, the head of product for Marlowe, emphasized the team's goal to create an efficient, secure, and user-friendly platform that allows developers to unlock the potential of their innovative ideas.

Cardano's ecosystem is currently thriving, with the total value locked (TVL) in its DeFi ecosystem reaching a record high of 712 million ADA, equivalent to over $211 million. Moreover, the platform's active users have surged to over 58k. However, the recent news of DJED, Cardano's stablecoin, de-pegging after difficulties in maintaining its reserve ratio, has raised concerns in the community.
