Mainnet 10.0: smart contracts to debut on March 29th
Starting from March 29th, 2023, Aleph Zero builders will be able to deploy their ink! 4.0 smart contracts on the Mainnet.
Soon, developers that have been building on Aleph Zero Testnet will be able to finally release their products to the Mainnet, making them available to the whole community. The smart contract functionality will debut on the Mainnet together with an update to version 10.0, which has been scheduled for release on March 29th, 2023.
Testnet verification passed
We are happy to say that after three weeks of running Testnet 10.0 with the ink! 4.0 stable release, we have gained confidence in pushing this version to the Mainnet.
We will still adhere to the standard set testing period and wait the full four weeks, but the launch will happen on the last day of testing, provided that no major issues are found. We expect the remaining test period to go smoothly.
Changes in the Mainnet 10.0 update
The update brings all the improvements introduced in Testnet 10.0, that is:
- ink! 4.0 smart contracts;
- reduced storage fee by a factor of 25;
- minor improvements & bug fixes.
The Mainnet 10.0 update process
Since the update does not involve consensus change, the binary and runtime update will be conducted and concluded on March 29th, together with the release of Aleph Node Runner 10.0.
Validators should download Aleph Node Runner 10.0 and update their nodes at their earliest convenience.
Opening up the ecosystem
Launching smart contracts on the Testnet allowed developers to experiment with Aleph Zero and work on their products before making them available to all the other ecosystem participants. On March 29th, it will finally be possible to launch projects on the Mainnet to use all Aleph Zero network participants.
With the majority of projects still under development, we’re expecting a number of interesting launches in the coming months. Moreover, the Aleph Zero Ecosystem Funding Program has been actively supporting builders for the last few months with grant funding, operational advice, marketing, and business development strategies—all to enrich the ecosystem, build original products, and contribute to the betterment of the crypto space.
This is an important milestone for Aleph Zero, and we hope you’re just as excited to see what products it will enable to be built and used!
