Cardano’s Vasil Upgrade Is Ready for Take-Off: ‘It’s Been Initiated’, Says Hoskinson

In a September 18 broadcast, Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson revealed that the Vasil hard fork implementation is now in its final stage after the hard fork combinator request was accepted.

Hoskinson continued that the automated process of implementing the Vasil upgrade has started, adding that “we all gonna sit back and watch the Vasil rocket take off. It’s in the air right now…There’s no going back now. It’s been initiated.”

September 22 date is locked

While the upgrade is scheduled to go live on September 22, Hoskinson stated that some of the upgrade effects would only become much more visible by September 27 due to several technical reasons. Hoskinson did not reveal these reasons.

The Cardano founder also implored the community to upgrade their wallets to Daedalus 5.0.0 because it contains some notable fixes.

The crypto community has highly anticipated the Cardano upgrade for several months. The upgrade was delayed twice because of the discovery of bugs which led to issues. Hoskinson was forced to apologize for his approach to claims that the Cardano Testnet is broken, saying that the SPO community is crucial to the network.

Meanwhile, the Vasil upgrade is the most ambitious Cardano upgrade. It is designed to drastically improve the network’s scalability by increasing throughput, script efficiency, and reducing latency in block transmission.
