Charles Hoskinson assured the crypto community that the Vasil hard fork will proceed without a hitch and no further bugs were discovered in recent tests. In the first two weeks of August, Hoskinson said that the Cardano testnet was hard forked to run version 1.35 of the Vasil upgrade. 

Internal testing revealed three bugs, engineering and quality assurance firms have noted no need for significant changes on version 1.35.3. Hoskinson told ADA holders that the chances of something going wrong are really small, therefore fueling bullish sentiment in the Cardano community. 

Though Cardano is notorious for its low profitability, ADA recently released its smart contract technology. Analysts have a bullish outlook on Cardano and predict a rally in the Ethereum-killer altcoin. 

Cardano price could hit $1.40 to $2 in its uptrend

Gert van Lagen, a leading crypto analyst and trader believes bull market structure in ADA is intact. On the weekly Cardano price chart, high timeframe support is $0.40 to $1 and low timeframe resistance is $1.40 to $2. 

A decline below $0.17 could invalidate the bullish thesis for Cardano price. Gert van Lagen believes the extension targets for waves IV-V are $6, $8, $12 and $27.
