- The first update has been finished, and the next is slated for the 27th of September.
- Vasil upgrade was named after the late member of the Cardano community Vasil St. Dabov.
After the Cardano team triggered all three “critical mass indications” necessary for the upgrade, the Cardano Vasil update was successfully accomplished. Additionally, the update has included a number of enhancements and, as expected, will make Cardano more scalable. The first update has been finished, and the next is slated for the 27th of September.
Vasil hard fork will improve a number of facets of the Cardano network’s blockchain. Cardano developer Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK) claims in a blog post that the blockchain’s user experience would be enhanced and development time shortened because of Vasil-enabled apps. It will reduce transaction costs and increase the network’s capacity to handle more users.
Moreover, Vasil hard fork aims to strengthen connections and the network as a whole. Cardano’s much-anticipated addition of smart contract functionalities was made possible via the Alonzo hard fork. The first Cardano hard fork, which went live on September 12, 2021.
More advanced CIP methods, UTXO (unspent transaction output) support, and Hydra integration are only a few of the new features introduced by Vasil. The Vasil hard fork proposes CIPs with the goal of expanding the capabilities of the Plutus smart contract language while maintaining its ease of use.
The Vasil upgrade was named after the late member of the Cardano community Vasil St. Dabov. It brings in a wide variety of network capabilities. Its throughput, efficiency, and block delay speeds should all improve after this upgrade.
Diffusion pipelining, an innovative technological approach, is one example. As a result, block propagation times are improved, which ultimately results in more data being sent per second. Meanwhile, Plutus, Cardano’s native smart contract language, is also receiving improvements.
