Charles Hoskinson slams Cardano trolls 

Charles Hoskinson, co-founder of Input Output Global (IOG) which backstops Cardano, condemned trolls in his latest tweet. Crypto Twitter is rife with speculation that smart contracts on Cardano’s blockchain will fail to function after the Vasil hard fork. Trolls believe dApps on the Cardano blockchain will have to rewrite their smart contracts to function on the chain after the Vasil hard fork event. 

Hoskinson slammed trolls and assured the community that Cardano’s dApps would continue to function after the Vasil hard fork. Hoskinson argues that the entire reason the hard fork combinator and Plutus versioning was built was to ensure this does not happen. 

Cardano prepares for wave of technical updates with big impact

Duncan Coutts, Principal Technical Architect at IO Global, revealed that the Cardano blockchain has been experiencing a number of updates. The Lace lightwallet and EVM sidechains and the Vasil hard fork are the key ones in the pipeline. 

Coutts recently came back to join the team at IOG and oversee the technical roadmap for Cardano. Coutts was quoted as saying, 

We’re thrilled about the Vasil upgrade, and we hard forked the Cardano Testnet on Monday this week in preparation. Although ‘hard fork’ is probably a misleading term when talking about how we do updates. IOG’s unique hard fork combinator means Cardano continues through the hard fork without a “break”, and that there’s no need to stop block production – this ensures smooth upgrades to the network.

Analysts predict Cardano price rally to $0.64

Michaël van de Poppe, a leading crypto analyst and trader, evaluated the Cardano price chart and predicted a 33.45% rally to the $0.64 level. The analyst believes Cardano price could hit the two upside targets of $0.55 and $0.64 in the current uptrend.
