IOHK writes:

“Delighted to report around 19.44 UTC today we successfully forked the Alonzo testnet to the new Alonzo White node. The new network is happily making blocks already.

Over the past week, we have spun up a new network and on boarded our new intake ready to help us move us closer to smart contracts. Now the next stage of the journey begins.

As well as our core SPO group, we’re now joined by members of the Project Catalyst crew and more Plutus partners. Plus a few more Pioneers to move us forward before opening up further. You can hear more about the journey in our mid-month update – landing Friday.

We’ll monitor the new network closely over the next 24 hours while continuing to do further QA work on the node tonight. We’ll then review any feedback/results tomorrow and start addressing any required fixes. We expect a number of updates as we add features to Alonzo White.

Thanks as ever to all our Alonzo testnet volunteers helping us on the journey to Cardano smart contracts! Onwards.”

After the White Era, Alonzo will become fully public during the Purple Phase, which means it will become available to all SPOs and pioneers. Alonzo highly anticipated hard fork is expected to roll out online in early September. It will bring smart contracts to cardano blockchain and end the Goguen era.

By Alonzo Cardano will be able to gain a foothold in the decentralized finance (DeFi), Non fungible tokens (NFT) and compete with Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and Solana.
