Why Aiken?
DApps in Cardano
Made Easier and Faster

Why Aiken?
DApps in Cardano
Made Easier and Faster

Created in response to a market need for a simple yet functional programming language in Cardano, Aiken has quickly been gaining adoption as the most popular programming tool for Cardano dApps.

Initiated by TxPipe and with support from the Cardano Foundation, Aiken enables developers to build dApps in weeks without a deep knowledge of Haskell, the programming language behind most of the technical architecture that underpins the Cardano blockchain.

Holographic Abstract Shape

Compared to other Cardano smart contract programming languages Plutus and Marlowe (which aim to lower the barriers of building using Haskell), Aiken allows builders to build and launch their ideas by making the development experience easier and faster. Aiken's ease of use has made it the top choice for Cardano development, driving nearly 15% of its mainnet traffic in March 2024.
