The blockchain structural engineer driving the Cardano system, Input Output Hong Kong, publishes some unfortunate news. There will b a delay on their Vasil update by one month according to the business.

Cardano co-founder Charles Hoskinson mentions that the Vasil update might give a huge performance gain to Cardano. It also includes its smart contract features. They initially plan it to take effect on June 29. Unfortunately, the most recent forecast is during the last week of July.


In a June 20 blog article, IOHK’s manager of service and project, Nigel Hemsley, states that the primary Input Output Global group working on the update is very near to concluding the core work. However, there are still seven faults that need to address.

Considering several perspectives, the development of Vasil has become the most challenging program of development and implementation to date. It’s a difficult process that necessitates not only tremendous effort from core teams but also strong collaboration all across the industry.

As an outcome, the Cardano Foundation as well as the IOG group decides to postpone the Vasil hard fork to the Cardano testnet until June 29. The foundation is a non-profit organization that controls Cardano’s ongoing development.

Cardano dApp developers and staking pool administrators SPOs will have four weeks to complete any essential interoperability. This will happen once the testnet will be okay. Furthermore, they will do testing before launching the Vasil hard fork on the network in late July. Accordingly, this is only normal and therefore, they should not rush to do it.  The basic hypothesis is now that a Cardano mainnet hard fork will occur within the last week of July.

Others will be Sadden by the Announcement

Hemsley acknowledges that the revelation will be upsetting to some. They are, nevertheless, exercising extreme caution to guarantee that they will carry out the deployment effectively.

The Vasil hard fork is Cardano’s most significant improvement since the Alonzo hard fork in September. This eventually allows for the implementation of a smart contract on the network. This current update will provide four network enhancements designated as CIP31, CIP32, CIP33, and CIP40.

Cardano will also be able to become a system because of the smart contract feature. Moreover, developers may create DApps and even mint non-fungible coins. This event becomes the moment in the network’s growth where the mission fully commences. However, the announcement of this milestone’s completion did not prevent the network’s native token, Cardano, from going into a worse downturn.

In principle, these modifications are intended to minimize transaction size, boost network speed, and decrease network transaction fees.

Cardano is a proof-of-stake blockchain technology that aims to compete with Ethereum as a low-fee smart contract network. With a market worth of roughly $16 billion, it is now placed seventh among all crypto assets.
