The Cardano development team has made another breakthrough towards implementing smart contract functionality on the work-in-progress blockchain.
According to Input Output Global (IOG), the software company behind the development of Cardano (ADA), a new version of the Cardano node, AlonzoBlue 2.0, has just been released to the testnet.
The development firm describes this important breakthrough as an important milestone in achieving the goal of bringing smart contracts to the Cardano network.
“GO: We are pleased to share that we have just released a new version of the Cardano node, the AlonzoBlue 2.0 version, to the testnet. This is an important milestone: thank you and congratulations to the entire AlonzoBlue team for the hard work that has brought us here ”.
In the same tweet thread, IOG noted that the release comes with a major update to the command line interface (CLI), which will serve as the foundation for all forms of smart contract applications that will be on the blockchain in the long run. term.
“It is still an early code. But this is a fundamental component. This release brings with it the important CLI update. Provide the foundation to build all varieties of smart contract applications later on.
Smart Txs allows the user to chain Tx metadata and store executable contract data. This opens up the era of smart contracts at Cardano for our early SPOs and pioneers to start sending and testing simple smart transactions (Tx) to the ledger through the node.
Alonzo Blue SPOs now have 24 hours to update their nodes before running their first test scripts tomorrow. ”
