As part of the project update, Cardano founder Charles HOSKINSON announced that the Vasil hard fork network will pass the public testing phase on June 2. The Vasil hard fork is on schedule and should be completed by June 29th. The Cardano blockchain and its Plutus smart contract are expected to receive a significant update after the Vasil hard fork.

As part of an update to the project, Hoskinson announced that the Vasil hard fork network will go through a public testing phase. Work will also be carried out with DApps to test applications in the test and main networks. After this step, exchanges can access the Cardano blockchain and check if their integration is required for the Cardano blockchain. The Vasil hard fork is an important initiative at the current stage of Cardano.

The focus is on improving scalability, compatibility, and optimization. In addition to the expected improvements that the hard fork will bring to the Plutus smart contract language for DApp developers, it will introduce diffusion pipelining to the Cardano blockchain and reduce latency in block transfers. According to Hoskinson, the upcoming Vasil hard fork will introduce four different “CIPs”: CIP-31 (Reference Inputs), CIP-32 (Inline Datums), CIP-33 (Reference Scripts) and CIP-40 (Collateral Outputs).
