Updating on Alonzo White, technology manager at IOHK, Kevin Hammond said:

“The transition between Alonzo blue to Alonzo White is scheduled for the coming week as the team initiated basic network functionalities, as well as the initial distribution of ADA to stake pool operators.”


The transition from Alonzo Blue to Alonzo White will not be simple, Hammond added: 

“At this stage of rolling out Alonzo, we don’t have all the core support mechanisms yet, even Plutus backend for that matter. “It can be as simple as a transaction the returns a ‘Hello world’ or confirmation of a payment that has been made. This means we have Alonzo running a smart contract.”

Delivery chief Nigel Hemsley added to the topic:

“As we move into White, we’ll do it into steps that will incorporate the release of the new release of the node and an enhanced CLI with functionality in it that enabled people to calculate the execution unit needed automatically as well other functionalities that will enable users to develop advance applications.”
