Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of Input Output Global, has recently updated the Cardano community on the much-anticipated implementation of the Vasil hard fork.
It can be recalled that Vasil hard fork, which was earlier slated to be implemented in July ending, was later postponed without communicating a definite date. The postponement was attributed to bugs discovered that need to be fixed before the upgrade can go live officially.
In a recent video on YouTube, Cardano creator discussed what is next for the blockchain. He specifically spoke on the fact that things that cause delays to Vasil upgrade are considerably small.

Hoskinson stated that the development is in its final testing stages and there shouldn’t be a delay at this point unless something new is discovered.
“The good news is that the set of things that could go wrong have gotten so small, and now we’re kind of in the final stages of testing in that respect. So unless anything new is discovered, I don’t anticipate that we’ll have any further delays…
“Things are moving in the right direction steadily and systematically and I just wanted to give you guys an update that it’s all well in hand this is the nature of these types of upgrades.”
He said the team of developers is working and the fixing of discovered bugs is advancing smoothly.
He showcased his disappointment in the team’s inability to roll out the hard fork as scheduled. But also stressed the necessity of getting the bugs fixed, “especially one that is involved with consensus or serialization or related to a particular issue with a transaction.”
Hoskinson described the much-anticipated Vasil hard fork as the most complicated upgrade to the Cardano network in history because it brings changes to the programming language Plutus, consensus protocol, and others alike.
