Cardano Updates

Vasil date announced

News just in that Vasil upgrade criteria are on track and a date for the upgrade has been announced by IOG for 22nd September, approximately 3 weeks from now as of writing.

Good news, this upgrade will unlock significant speed increases and new capabilities, providing ample headroom for the Cardano ecosystem to grow during the next 1-2 years, until the likely end game solution of “input endorsers” is released.

All ADAvault nodes have been upgraded ready for Vasil and are running the 1.35.3 code base with no issues detected to date.

We are also running 1.35.3 on the pre-production network, the pool unsurprisingly has the ticker ADV – with description ADAvault preprod. This allows us to reliably test new releases and upgrade processes, as well as the new p2p networking solution which we will likely enable on the production nodes later this year.
