Cardano hard fork ‘ever closer’ as upgraded SPOs account for 42% of blocks

Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK), the blockchain company behind the Cardano network says the eagerly awaited Vasil hard fork is "nearer and closer" in the wake of uncovering the condition of three basic markers that will set off the Mainnet update.

In a Twitter post on Aug. 25, IOHK shared its most recent "rollout status" of the Vasil upgrade to its 265,800 followers, with an update on "three minimum amount markers" which will decide when the Mainnet update will go for it.

This incorporates having 75% of Mainnet blocks delivered by nodes running 1.35.3, around 25 exchanges upgraded (addressing 80% of liquidity) as well as the top ten key Mainnet Dapps additionally having upgraded.

on Thursday, the blockchain company noticed that Stake Pool Operators (SPOs) running the most recent node 1.35.3 now represent 42% of Mainnet block creation in the ongoing age, which is currently more than most of the way to the 75% required.

IOHK expressed, that Binance has upgraded their Cardano nodes to the updated version the firm has been targetting approx 25 exchanges to upgrade their nodes as would account approx 80% of its native token's total liquidity

As to Mainnet decentralized applications (DApps), IOHK confirmed that they'll keep on remaining nearby a large number of the DApp teams on Cardano, with four out of 10 already confirming they are effectively trying against node 1.35.3 on the pre-production Testnet.

After a roadmap was delivered by IOHK on May 19 which made arrangements for a hard fork on Jun. 29, the Vasil upgrade has been plagued by delays while developers guarantee the network progress continues without a hitch.

Charles Hoskinson, co-founder of Cardano, as of late answered to criticism about the update being hurried. He proposed that they could delay the launch for a long time to retest the code which has already been tried and running, however, the DApp developers wouldn't see this as beneficial given they have stood by so long as of now.
