Cardano App Now Supports Smart Contracts
In September 2021, the Alonzo hard fork introduced the Cardano community to smart contract functionality for the first time. However, the compatibility has been lacking on the Cardano app for more than six months.
On Tuesday, April 26th, Ledger announced that the Cardano app had been upgraded to v.4.0.0, with the highlight of the upgrade being the introduction of smart contract functionality to the app. Ledger tweeted;
The app now provides users with access to the growing Cardano decentralized finance ecosystem via ‘YoROI’ and ‘AdaLite’. Ledger also revealed that, with the upgrade, users can now sign smart contracts on the Cardano app.
Cardano Founder Reacts
The announcement was well received by the Cardano community, and even caught the attention of Charles Hoskinson, Cardano’s CEO and Co-Founder.
Hoskinson took to Twitter to celebrate the new milestone for Cardano. Replying to the announcement, he wrote: “Moving the chains. Great work, Ledger.”
