Vasil Upgrade Checklist
Before proceeding with this massive upgrade through Cardano’s hard fork combinator (HFC) approach, Cardano had a check with all the mass indicators. The significant players in this upgradation process are 39 exchanges like Binance, Upbit, and AAX, with ready states, and Coinbase in the in-progress state. Vasil node version 1.35.3, completed 98% of mainnet blocks creation.
The Vasil upgrade is expect to amplify the network’s performance through increasing throughput, script efficiency, and reducing latency in block transmission as per the IOHK blog. Cardano’s top-level DApps have shown green signals for upgradation posting testing.
An interesting fact to remember in this upgrade is the nomenclature, which is a tribute to the Cardano community member, the late Vasil St Dabov. Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano, also mentioned it in one of his Twitter podcasts.
“I hope that we can honor [Vasil’s] legacy by,……I’m very glad that he was able to teach so many in our ecosystem so much and he was a great mentor to many, myself included.”
