Cardano To Soon Have Plutus-Powered Smart Contracts
Cardano has recently shared details on Plutus - the platform’s native programming language used to write smart contracts once the Alonzo upgrade is live. In a blog post, IOHK (the firm behind Cardano), explained that Plutus contracts consist of parts that run on-chain and parts that run on the user’s machine off-chain.
The company added that both parts are written in the Haskell programming language but are compiled by Plutus, which provides the framework for smart contracts on Cardano. Similar to Bitcoin, Cardano uses the UTXO (unspent transaction output) model, where the inputs are unspent outputs from previous transactions. Notably, Cardano has employed an extended UTXO model (EUTXO) that offers unique advantages compared to other accounting models.
The EUTXO model essentially allows the validity of transactions to be checked off-chain before the transaction is sent to the blockchain. Ethereum Layer 1, on the other hand, processes transactions all on-chain. Transaction execution costs can be also determined off-chain before transmission, which is another unique feature.
To define the parameters of these EUTXO transactions and compile the code developed for smart contracts, the platform will use Plutus Core. A Plutus Application Framework (PAF) will provide easy access to services and applications running on the network with full web browser interoperability.
Applications written on top of the PAF automatically provide an HTTP and WebSocket interface that can be used to interact with the application from the web browser.
Cardano Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
The Cardano price may drop to the $1.36 support wall before it bounced up and retests the $1.50 psychological level once again.
