Cardano Vasil Hard Fork Is Once Again Postponed for Several Weeks

The previously scheduled Cardano Vasil hard fork for the end of July has been postponed again, with no indication of how many more weeks are required.

For months, the Cardano community has been anticipating the Vasil network upgrade. However, the upgrade has frequently been delayed due to what the developers refer to as “further testing.” Cardano’s main tenet is that no system should be deployed unless it is completely and flawlessly perfect.

Cardano announced a few weeks ago that it would deploy its latest network hard fork by July 2022. Unfortunately, this plan does not appear to have come to fruition. According to the most recent reports, Cardano has postponed the upgrade until further notice.

IOG Tim Harrison, VP of Community & Ecosystem, and Kevin Hammond, Technical Manager at IOG, informed Cardano 360 about the hard fork delay.

Kevin Hammond, Technical Manager at IOG, stated:

“Obviously, from where we are, there could be a few more weeks before we go to the actual Vasil hard fork. This is incredibly important. All the users must be ready to progress through the hard fork to ensure a smooth process.”

Tim Harrison said:

“This will ensure that API developers and exchanges are all ready for that.”

Reason for the Delay

The main reason for the delay appears to be to allow Cardano engineers more time to test the hard fork thoroughly. This is typically done in a testnet using virtual variables derived from real-world network statistics. Thorough testing is one of the most important measures taken by developers to create reliable and secure systems.

As a result, the Vasil hard fork will likely be deployed once Cardano developers are certain that the system has been thoroughly tested and is ready for release. It was unclear whether the delay would impact ADA’s market standings. At the time of writing, ADA is trading at around $0.53 and is ranked seven on the charts.
