Cardano Approaches Smart Contracts With Alonzo White

Anna Martynova

According to IOHK, Cardano has officially entered the implementation phase of Alonzo White smart contracts. At this stage, the number of testers will significantly increase and additional functions will be added.

At the end of May, Cardano launched Alonzo Blue, the very first testnet. After the White phase, Alonzo will become fully public during the Purple phase. This means that it will become available to all Stake Pool Operators (SPOs) and new members.

The long-awaited Alonzo hard fork, named after mathematician Alonzo Church, is expected to roll out to the mainnet in early September. It will bring smart contracts to the proof of stake blockchain and herald the end of the Goguen era.
