Cardano Fans Will Have To Wait A Few More Weeks As Vasil Hard Fork Delayed.


The Cardano Vasil hard fork previously planned for the end of July has been delayed again without specifying how many more weeks are needed.

The Cardano community has been waiting for the Vasil network upgrade for months. However, the upgrade has often been postponed due to what the developers call “further testing.” For one, Cardano’s main mantra is never to deploy a system unless it’s completely and flawlessly perfect.

A few weeks ago, Cardano announced that it would deploy its latest network hard fork by July 2022. This plan now seems to have not materialized. The latest reports reveal that Cardano has chosen to postpone the upgrade until further notice.

IOG Tim Harrison, VP of Community & Ecosystem, and Kevin Hammond, IOG’s Technical Manager, informed about the hard fork delay in Cardano 360:

Kevin Hammond, IOG’s Technical Manager, 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.”

Tim Harrison said:

“This will ensure that API developers and exchanges are all ready for that.”

Apparently, the main reason for the delay is to give more room for the engineers at Cardano to conduct exhaustive testing of the hard fork. This is usually done in a testnet with virtual variables derived from the real network stats. Thorough testing is one of the developers’ key measures to design reliable and secure systems.

As such, the Vasil hard fork can be expected to be deployed when Cardano developers are absolutely sure that the system is adequately tested and ready for release. It wasn’t immediately clear whether the delay would affect ADA’s market standings in any way. At the time of this writing, ADA is trading at around $0.53 and holding position 7 in the charts.
