Input Output Hong Kong, one of the companies behind the Cardano blockchain, today announced the successful upgrade of its Alonzo testnet to the Alonzo White network.

Fast facts
  • The Cardano blockchain is in the midst of a multi-phase Alonzo upgrade that will bring smart-contract functionality to the blockchain. Each phase — named blue, white and purple — will include more users, functionality and features. Mainnet deployment is expected by the end of September.

HARD FORK SUCCESSFUL: Delighted to report around 19.44 UTC today we successfully forked the #Alonzo testnet to the new #AlonzoWhite node. The new network is happily making blocks already. 1/5— Input Output (@InputOutputHK) July 14, 2021

  • “Over the past week, we have spun up a new network and onboarded our new intake ready to help us move us closer to smart contracts,” Input Output wrote in a tweet. “Now the next stage of the journey begins.”
  • Earlier this month, Cardano launched its “Catalyst Circle,” a new community-elected group responsible for feedback and reporting on its Project Catalyst, a public fund supporting innovation in the Cardano community.
