According to its inventor Charles Hoskinson, Cardano is increasing its workforce to introduce intelligent contract functions.
In a new video update, Hoskinson tells his 195,000 subscribers that his team is hiring key positions to prepare for Cardano’s Alonzo launch in August. This upgrade will add intelligent contract functionality to the protocol.
“We have Alonzo nodes internally, the code runs on Alonzo. There are still a lot of bugs and kinks and things to come out of and there is still a lot of stability to be improved as expected … And there are a lot of things that need to be properly integrated like the wallet backend and we need to make sure that the Plutus application backend is portable. And we’re doing everything in our power to make sure this works in parallel and quickly.
We have provided many additional QA (quality assurance) resources. We have hired a lot of part-time and temporary (temporary) dedicated employees to do certain things. So I said we went part time to full time and all of those things. “
The Cardano founder assures that the scalable blockchain has put together a team to get projects off the ground.
“Over the next 90 days we are very keen to ensure that those who have viable projects or the potential for viable projects not only die on the vines, but get the support they need to take them up on the projects next level. Part of that is the Catalyst program, and part of that is to make sure we have a broad group of developers to help support this new model and help people get their applications in a ship-ready state. ”
Hoskinson, who is also CEO of Cardano-focused development company Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK), predicts the Alonzo upgrade will result in unprecedented activity within the company and the wider Cardano community.
“So this will likely be the busiest 90 days in my company’s history and in the history of the ecosystem.”
