Cardano is as close as possible to launching a smart contract on the Alonzo Purple testnet.
Research firm IOHK made the announcement that by starting with blue and continuing with white, Cardano Alonzo has finally entered a test magenta phase. This phase marks a very important step in the launch of smart contracts on the largest Proof of Ownership blockchain.
The Alonzo Purple testnet is completely public, which means that all Plutus Pioneer Project members, stock pool operators and stock exchanges will be able to participate. Alonzo Blue and Alonzo White, unlike Alonzo Purple, are limited to 50 and 500 users, respectively.
The exact date for the hard fork merger will be announced in mid-August. After several milestones, the Alonzo hard fork is expected to go live on the mainnet around the beginning of September.
Alonzo Purple will be the last stage in Cardano, the goal that they want to achieve - to enable writing smart contracts in the Plutus programming language on the blockchain network.
