The cryptocurrency ecosystem is thrilled about the Vasil hard fork, which will be released at the end of July and is undergoing IOHK finishing touches. The team at Cardano has also submitted an updated proposal for the hard fork as it commences the countdown for the Vasil mainnnet upgrade.
One of the core features that are highly anticipated is the good chain density which was accomplished with over 75% testnet blocks created using the new Vasil mode. The developer firm has also expressed its gratitude to the entire community for their support and supporting Cardano stake pool operators who “continue to support the testnet, and their coordinated effort to ready the network for the Vasil HFC event.”
This statement actually referred to the Hard Fork Combinator HFC, which is a “part of a series of upgrades and network optimizations expected in the current development phase,” as described on the Cardano feed. It is one of the “eleven planned scaling proposals to be implemented in 2022,”
What to expect?
Apart from this, users can also expect several other changes. Cardano pushed out a tweet stating,
“Once the changes have taken effect after the start of epoch 215 at 20:20 UTC on 3 July, the Cardano testnet will start to enjoy the new Vasil enhancements and capabilities that we’ll soon see on mainnet.”
Input-Output also told the followers that the Vasil improvement will guarantee “higher throughput through diffusion pipelining to a better developer experience via much-improved script performance & efficiency (plus lower costs),” adding that “it is Cardano’s biggest and best upgrade to date.”
Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano, also expressed his views,
“It is also the most complex program of work we’ve undertaken. And the whole community is involved. As shared previously, our prime concern is ensuring we manage this upgrade in a way that is safe and secure.”
The team at Cardano also said that the mainnet would be upgraded to Vasil once every user is comfortable and ready to go through the change.
