Cardano Smart Contracts To Bring In Corporate Use Cases
Cardano creator Charles Hoskinson recently revealed that its Alonzo upgrade would launch this coming August. IOHK, Cardano’s development company, announced that the Alonzo upgrade would add support for smart contracts to the Cardano blockchain.
The update will allow devs to build on the Cardano platform – a highly anticipated functionality that the Ethereum network currently offers. IOHK noted that the upgrade aims to support businesses and support developers wishing to build decentralized finance (DeFi) dApps.
Smart contracts mark the next phase in Cardano’s evolution as a worldwide distributed ledger. When supporting everyday business, a blockchain must guarantee that individuals can move their funds and pay for products in a secure way.
Smart contracts help ensure that a transaction or a purchase is only made when certain conditions are met, enabling reliable and secure settlements. In May and June, IOHK plans to allow users to test the new product, which will also enable crypto exchanges and wallets “time to upgrade and prepare for the Alonzo protocol update.”
Cardano Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
The Cardano price will likely rise up to the $1.40 resistance barrier.
