Cardano Gets More Close To Launching Smart Contracts By Announcing Alonzo Purple Testnet Which Is The First Public Testnet

Cardano’s Alonzo testnet has entered into the “Purple” phase, according to a Friday announcement made by research and development company IOHK.

IOHK Writes:

“This is an exciting and important next step in the Alonzo journey. In fact, the Cardano journey. With the support of our OG community testers on the Blue & White phases, AlonzoPurple will be the first fully public Cardano testnet to support smartcontracts.

It’s an important moment, marking significant progress in the rollout of smartcontracts on the Cardano mainnet which is targeted for the end of August/early September.

So Alonzo progress is very good. We still have a way to go. We expect more bugs and may yet encounter bumps in the road. That is what a testnet is for. And there is still plenty of integration, testing and ongoing optimization to go.

But we’re on track and feeling good. And we have an incredible Cardano behind us, alongside us and cheering us on And a truly exciting future, just around the corner.”

The new stage—which was preceded by “Blue” and “White”—marks a major step to launching smart contacts on the largest proof-of-stake blockchain.

The Alonzo Purple testnet is fully public, which means that all members of the Plutus pioneer program, all stake pool operators and exchanges can participate.

For comparison, Alonzo Blue and Alonzo White were limited to 50 users and 500 users, respectively.

Cardano will begin the systematic onboarding of cryptocurrency exchanges, according to IOHK CEO Charles Hoskinson.

IOHK Writes:

“We have already been engaging with a number of exchanges on AlonzoWhite. With AlonzoPurple we’ll broaden this further, adding more exchanges. This integration work – being driven by a CardanoStiftung integration team led by Mel – is crucial to success.”
