Cardano's Vasil Hard Fork Upgrade Is Working Successfully: Here's What You Need to Know ...

Cardano''s Vasil hard fork upgrade was successful, which was initially scheduled for late June 2022, but was delayed due to Terra''''s collapse and the harsh market conditions, so that the team over at the Cardano foundation wanted to perform all of the necessary tests and caution before proceeding the upgrade.

Participants on a blockchain network decide to split the chain, resulting in two versions of the same network or protocol. The Cardano hard fork is designed to help Web3 developers improve the experience of creating decentralised apps (dApps) on Cardano.

The #Vasil mainnet HFC event is successful! Today, at 21:44:00 UTC, the IOG team, in collaboration with the @CardanoStiftung, hard forked the Cardano mainnet via a HFC event, thus introducing new #Vasil features to the chain.1/5

Plutus'' smart contract platform will also be enhanced, as well as Plutus''s, which remains off-chain and runs on a user''s machine. These changes will allow developers to develop blockchain-based applications that are more powerful and efficient.

In this blog post by IOHK, the hard fork will also introduce "diffusion pipelining." This will help perform better and reduce the amount of data Cardano can handle. Today, blocks of data follow a series of steps. Pipelining allows certain of these steps to occur at the same time.

Cardano has already made significant improvements as it stands today. More than 3,200 Plutus (the traditional card language used on Cardano) scripts exist on the blockchain. And developers are building 1,100 projects there. The blockchain has processed a total of 50 million transactions.

Cardano''s hydra heads scaling solution will be later rolled down. Hydra heads will allow certain operations between a certain number of participants to take place off the main network.
