On July 3, Input Output Global (IOG), the company behind the development of Cardano, hard forked Vasil on the testnet.

App developers, staking pool operators (SPOs), exchanges, and other ecosystem participants have four weeks to “finally test and integrate” the update before launching on the mainnet.

“Vasil is a comprehensive program of work. Projects will need to check backwards compatibility, and SPOs will need to make some changes to script execution,” noted IOG.

The company’s specialists recalled that the upgrade provides higher network throughput due to diffusion pipeline processing. For project developers, this improves script performance and efficiency at a lower cost.

The update also includes:

  • enhancements to Cardano’s cryptographic primitives to extend interoperability to other blockchains;
  • configured Plutus smart contract interpreter;
  • a new cost model that is part of the Plutus V2 scripts.

“The Vasil update is the most ambitious work program we have undertaken. And the whole community is involved. Our main task is to ensure the safe and reliable management of the upgrade,” emphasized the IOG developers.

In June, the company’s specialists had to postpone the activation of Vasil due to unresolved technical problems.

At the end of the month, the IOG developers determined the date of the hard fork on the testnet.
