Alonzo has launched in Cardano mainnet and a number of smart contracts are already running on the network as expected, but there are more big things to expect, which will expand utilities for the growth of the Cardano ecosystem.
In a tweet on 14th September, Sidney Vollmer, the head of Brand and Communications at Cardano Foundation, hinted at the community of big things to come, which will be announced during the Cardano Summit scheduled to take place before the end of the month.
According to Sidney, Cardano Foundation is set to announce some mind-blowing partnerships during the summit. These partnerships are to serve as a complement to the Alonzo mainnet launch. He said Cardano will continue to innovate in order to change the world for the better.
Sidney Vollmer tweeted, “Don’t really want to brag or anything but… some of the partnerships we’re announcing at the #CardanoSummit will blow people’s mind. Really grateful for the chances we at Cardano Foundation have to change the world for the better, and have fun together. Tune in.”

Charles Hoskinson Says More Countries Are Likely To Adopt Crypto
In a video a few days ago, Charles Hoskinson, the creator of Cardano (ADA), said that more nations are likely to adopt crypto following El Salvador’s adoption of Bitcoin (BTC) as legal tender.
In the video, Hoskinson added that he believes cryptocurrency has clearly won the market over and already transforming the world.
Charles Hoskinson noted:
“Over a hundred million people, the majority of people under the age of 25, have a positive view of cryptocurrencies and a lot of them own them, that’s the future.
“Their children will grow up with those values and beliefs about the nature of money, so in a certain respect, we, as an industry, won.”
“In the coming years, many more nation-states will use crypto as part of their monetary policy either as reserves in their central banks using cryptocurrency rails for central bank settlement…as El Salvador has done, and make it the national currency.”
“Crypto legitimizes the belief that we should be in control of the money in our pocket and we should be ultimately in control of how that money moves and who receives it, not trusted third parties who we’ve never met, know very little about and, in many cases, are adversarial to the people of the country.
“Crypto is definitely not only here to stay. It’s very clear that crypto is going to change the world and already has in many ways.”
