    Finally, Cardano’s Vasil upgrade has been completed

    The update to Cardano’s Vasil network has been finished. On the peer-reviewed, proof-of-stake blockchain technology, the long-awaited launch will make it possible to improve network capacity, enhance throughput, and reduce transaction costs.

    According to Frederik Gregaard, CEO of the Cardano Foundation, speaking to The Block, “The Vasil hard fork moves us towards this goal by improving Cardano’s foundational features, upgrading the technology’s capacity to transform our traditional financial and social systems, and ultimately advancing decentralised economic empowerment.”

    The optimization, scalability, and interoperability of applications are the primary targets of the Vasil hard fork. Cardano is now in the middle of the Basho period, which is one of the most important stages of development on the Cardano roadmap.

    Because the transfer was handled in the background, typical ADA holders who use Cardano for transactions and decentralised applications were not needed to take any action during the upgrade to Vasil.

    The update was supposed to take place in June, but since it was delayed, the Plutus v2 features that were included within Cardano’s smart contracts were also enabled.

    Because to the Vasil update, the capabilities of the blockchain platform are now more closely aligned with those of Ethereum, which is the most widely used platform for smart contracts. It opens up further the possibility that future and ongoing Cardano DeFi initiatives may be able to produce applications that are more powerful, efficient, and cost-effective.

    Ahead of the upgrade, Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano, said this about the blockchain platform’s methodical approach to adding new capabilities: “(We) knew that, over time, we could get to what Ethereum has done, but we understood a road map to get there.” Hoskinson was referring to the incremental nature of adding new features to the platform.

    Earlier in September, the date of the update was set in stone by Input Output Global, a research and development organisation with a primary emphasis on Cardano (IOG). Following the completion of the requisite critical mass indicators and the successful acquisition of guarantees from staking pool operators, exchanges, and dApp community members saying that they were ready for Vasil, the decision to proceed with the implementation was taken.

    According to The Block, the Vasil upgrade was carried out in conjunction with individuals spanning the entirety of the Cardano ecosystem, including the core development team, the Cardano Foundation, IOG, Emurgo, and the greater Cardano community. This was accomplished through the utilisation of technical Cardano Improvement Proposals (CIPs).

    According to Cardano’s announcement, the update will result in improved functionality as well as speed and scalability. Following the completion of one epoch, on September 27th, the newly added capabilities of Vasil will become accessible on the mainnet.
