Cardano community is earnestly waiting for the implementation of smart contracts functionality on the Cardano network. This is a viable development expected to bring the emerging smart contract platform to the same level as Ethereum.
Despite the relentlessness of the team of developers at IOG to make this happen and a lot of proofs to show for it, critics still believe that the team can’t deliver as promised.
A Bet on Whether Cardano Would Deliver As Promised
A platform has currently launched a bet on whether Cardano would implement smart contracts before 1st October 2021.
The title of the bet says, “Will Cardano support smart contracts on mainnet before October 1st, 2021?.” The two odds “Yes or No” provided are very close currently. And a lot of critics continue to bet against Cardano with their hard-earned money.
Recently, one of the Cardano critics called the attention of the CEO of IOG, Charles Hoskinson. The critic said he’s sure that Cardano will fail to deliver as promised. However, Hoskinson sees this as a test to push the crypto project to its success.
The user tweeted, “I’ve found free money on Polymarket. There is no chance ADA will have a functioning smart contract on mainnet in 2021. Charles Hoskinson especially mentioned this bet and made fun of it. Surely he will ignore it when this bet resolves and ”No” betters get their rewards.

“Charles Hoskinson will most likely completely clone another working POS chain and call it an update of ADA and decorate it with fact-bending theses to make it look like it evolved from the current github.” He added.
Next Two Months Are Going To Be Fun for Cardano
As expected, Charles Hoskinson did not leave the critic without a response. He used the opportunity to reassure the community, stating that the roadmap to the implementation of smart contracts functionality on Cardano has not changed.
He said critics will continue to throw their usual jibes, but the next two months will be fun for the Cardano ecosystem.
Charles Hoskinson tweeted, “It’s amazing how delusional some people are. This is honestly the level cardano critics are at now. Next two months are going to be fun. Expect a lot of meltdowns and temper tantrums from the paint chip brigade.”

Meanwhile, Cardano has advanced from Alonzo Blue to Alonzo White, bringing the network closer to the smart contracts era.
After the White phase, Alonzo is expected to go fully public, which is dubbed Alonzo Purple. In this phase, Alonzo will become available to all stake pool operators (SPOs) and pioneers.
