The developers have postponed activating the Vasil hard fork in the Cardano network. According to IOG CTO Kevin Hammond, the team wants to ensure all parties to the process are ready for the upgrade.
“Obviously, it may be a few more weeks before we move on to the actual implementation of Vasil. This is incredibly important. All users must be ready for the hard fork in order for the process to go smoothly,” Hammond said.
He also noted that IOG is focusing on solving some problems in the testnet, gradually moving towards releasing the Cardano 1.35.2 software version. The new client fixes several bugs identified during testing, including those related to decentralized applications.
“The goal is to fix the latest issues as we get closer to the hard fork. We’re fixing tester-focused features to get things right and without rush,” he added.
Vasil includes four proposals to improve the Cardano network, focused on reducing transaction fees and improving network security. The update will also make interacting with the project’s intelligent contracts easier.
Initially, the hard fork was planned to be activated at the end of June 2022, but the date was postponed to the next month.
