Cardano (ADA) altcoin founder Charles Hoskinson expects the Vasil hard fork update to occur in September if all goes well and no bugs or slowdowns delay the update.

IOHK will work with the Cardano (ADA) community to set a date for the Vasil hard fork. Additionally, the team will hold a meeting with the Stake Pool Operators (SPO) to get an update on the preparations on their part.

Charles Hoskinson Expects Cardano Vasil Hard Fork to Happen in September

Cardano (ADA) founder Charles Hoskinson said in a video he released on August 27 that things are moving very fast and he predicts the Vasil hard fork will most likely take place in September. The developers and the community are doing extensive testing on the 1.35.3 node, and to the authorities the integration and infrastructure look good. Also, no major bugs other than minor bugs in the backlog.

Cardano (ADA) founder Charles Hoskinson said:

   "Things are moving very fast, extensive testing continues to be done by both the community and us, and a lot of integration work is going on behind the scenes, so the whole infrastructure looks good."

The team will work with the ADA community to set a September date for the Vasil hard fork. In addition, meetings will be held with SPOs to receive the latest developments regarding Vasil hard fork preparations. Also, exchanges will be encouraged to raise it to 1.35.3 to provide liquidity.

PoolTool data shows that SPOs running 1.35.3 nodes accounted for 53% of mainnet block production in Epoch 359. IOHK is targeting 75% block production by SPOs running 1,35.3 nodes to implement the fork on the Cardano mainnet. Moreover, Cardano developer Adam Dean confirmed yesterday that the Vasil hard fork will arrive sooner than expected.
