Cardano on the way to bring Vasil hard fork to mainnet
The network has started the countdown to the much anticipated upgrade.
Cardano blockchain's upcoming Vasil hard fork is finally expected to deploy on the mainnet as soon as developers are comfortable and ready to perform the transition.
Yesterday, Vice President Community & Ecosystem at Input Output Global Tim Harrison – the company behind the development of the Cardano network –, provided updates on the long-awaited Cardano’s testnet and Vasil hard fork and revealed that the network is getting closer and closer to its mainnet launch.
#Cardano SPOs making good progress over the weekend with upgrades - block producing node metric at 58% for the epoch so far and the hourly on 76%. Very pleasing trajectory. Exchanges & DApp developers also working hard behind the scenes. We're getting there #ReadyForVAsil 🙌👍 pic.twitter.com/2EzNITfvgT— Tim Harrison (@timbharrison) August 28, 2022
According to the Cardano roadmap, the implementation was to be launched last June 29, but due to a series of issues was canceled and thus began a continuous series of postponements.
The Vasil upgrade - named after a much loved and respected Cardano community member, the late Vasil St Dabov – will bring significant improvements using Cardano’s hard fork combinator (HFC) approach and enhance the network’s performance by increasing throughput, script efficiency, and reducing latency in block transmission.
