Cardano Network hit a key milestone ahead of the Vasil hard fork
While the Vasil hard fork was delayed two times by the developers of the Cardano network Input Output Global (IOG), analysts retain a bullish outlook on Cardano. Ahead of the Vasil hard fork, there is a large number of network participants and holders awaiting the update.
The number of smart contracts on a Cardano-based smart contracts platform, Plutus Scripts crossed 3,000, and this is considered a key milestone for the asset.
Charles Hoskinson recently commented on the delayed Vasil hard fork. Hoskinson was quoted as saying,
…the problem is that every time something is discovered, you have to fix it. But then you have to verify the fix and go back through the entire testing pipeline.
Hoskinson emphasized the importance of completion of the entire testing pipeline before the Vasil hard fork is implemented.
The IOG team is working on the two bugs that were discovered, on nodes v.1.35.1 and v.1.35.2. This would speed up the development on the Vasil hard fork.
