Recently, Charles Hoskinson, founder of Cardano (ADA), as well as co-founder and CEO of IOHK, spoke about the development roadmap for Smart Contracts on the Cardano network.
Last Thursday (March 25), Hoskinson spoke about Cardano's smart contract support implementation plan during the “Cardano360” virtual conference:
“And now we are heading towards what is called the Alonzo Phase… And here is a kind of timeline of how it works. So first of all, it needs to be integrated into the ledger in the node code. That is the heart of Cardano. Then the wallet is placed on top, then Daedalus. Okay so what's happening now, all through March and through all of April, is that integration into the node to get ACLIs.
Now that integration is happening, sprint by sprint, partners are joining. Then after that happens, we will be able, at the end of April, beginning of May, to launch Alonzo Testnet, which means, for the first Always, publicly, people will be able to write smart contracts and implement them in Cardona. And to see something that started as a dream slowly come together and turn into something like this is extraordinary. "
