The most awaited Cardano hard fork, Vasil, appears to be having more difficulties yet. Kevin Hammond, IOG’s Technical Manager, suggested during the most recent Cardano 360 event that there might be a delay of a few more weeks without providing a particular release date. He said that doing this was essential for future testing and guaranteeing a seamless procedure.

IOG Technical manager, Kevin Hammond said, “Obviously, from where we are, there could be a few more weeks before we go to the actual Vasil hard fork. This is incredibly important. All the users must be ready to progress through the hard fork to ensure a smooth process.”

After IOG revealed a change in the timing around the end of June, the Vasil mainnet hard fork was tentatively expected to occur in the last week of July. After the July 3 testnet hard fork, it was announced that exchanges and SPOs (stake pool operators) required at least four weeks for testing.

As of the Cardano node version 1.35.2, Hammond noted that IOG has been concentrating on resolving several testnet difficulties. The latest node version addresses problems with developers of decentralized applications (DApps), stake pool operators, internal testing, and other testnet-found problems.

ETH Enters the Merger Phase

Since the completion of the Alonzo hard fork in September 2021, the Vasil hard fork is the biggest improvement to Cardano. The forthcoming fork is hailed as a “game changer” in the growth of Cardano since it is anticipated to increase the network’s speed and scalability, making it better suited for smart contracts and DApps.

The cryptocurrency community was expecting another significant event for one of the biggest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization when Vasil’s delay occurred. On September 19, Ethereum, the second-largest blockchain in terms of value, will enter the merger phase of its proof-of-stake (PoS) shift. The phase has been postponed several times, as was previously reported, and the whole improvement is anticipated to become live in 2023.
