Vasil, Cardano’s hard fork, has already seen a few delays. As a result, the aforementioned improvement aims to decrease transaction size while increasing the network’s capacity for transactions. The transaction fee will also decrease, making this Cardano’s “largest” and “greatest” improvement.
In contrast to rushing into the hard fork, developers are concerned with quality and want to get things right. In a recent YouTube live, Cardano’s founder Charles Hoskinson stated the following regarding the current situation:
“Vasil is looking good.”
He continued, “I’m really delighted with v. 1.35.3,” The team deployed the aforementioned node during the end of last week, and according to development notes,
“Node 1.35.3 fixes some important issues with previous versions of the node and provides some CLI enhancements. The node provides full Vasil-era capabilities.”
However, it should be noted that none of the known problems were viewed as obstacles to the mainnet hard fork. Hoskinson claims that the most recent node, which the team has tested out along with versions 1.35.1 and 1.35.2, may be the final one for the hard fork. He elaborated on this in the video, saying,
“1.35.3 is out, and that’s probably going to be the node unless something is discovered that the hard fork combinator event is pushed for. So it’s being rapidly adopted and tested and played around with by the community.”
The founder of Cardano went on to say that the ship was in good hands and that’s what a cryptocurrency and a blockchain ecosystem should be.
Other networks have more utility than Cardano?
Even while the token has performed admirably in terms of networks, detractors like Mark Cuban believe that other networks, like Dogecoin, are more useful than Cardano. The American businessman continued to assert last week that “no one” besides his Twitter ADA followers had ever disclosed to him that they used a specific Cardano app. He added that the token “church” is the only place where the ecosystem’s games, DeFi, NFTs, etc. are visible.
In the most recent video, Hoskinson defended the network by saying,
“I know you don’t think there’s any Dapps on Cardano, but there’s actually a lot of code that’s been deployed…”
Despite significant advancements, Cardano and its whole crew have faced opposition from haters, trolls, and network impersonators. A certain Twitter user recently asserted that he would “steal” Cardano’s code and create his own network. Hoskinson, though, didn’t seem to care, as he only offered a message with a spelling fix in response.
