Today, developers at Input Output and the Cardano Foundation revealed that the Cardano Vasil hard fork would take place on September 22, exactly one week after the projected date of September 15 for the Ethereum merger.

On Friday, Cardano developer Input Output tweeted that "Vasil is the most major Cardano update to yet, offering enhanced network capacity and reduced cost transactions."

A hard fork occurs when members of a blockchain network choose to divide the chain. This can happen for several reasons, leading to two different networks or protocols. Hard forks can occur as part of a scheduled upgrade, like the beacon chain hard fork that will take place on September 6 before the merging, or they can be contentious, like the anticipated ETHPOW hard fork following the Ethereum merge.

The Vasil hard fork of Cardano wants to scale and grow the Ethereum rival, but it also aims to enhance the development environment for Web3 engineers building decentralized applications on Cardano.

Input Output, “The upgrade will also include improvements to Plutus to enable developers to design more robust and effective blockchain-based apps.” Plutus is Cardano’s platform for building smart contracts.

Charles Hoskinson, the creator of Cardano and a former co-founder of Ethereum, gave a live-stream interview on Friday morning in which he discussed the Vasil hard fork date.

The fact that the date coincides with Bulgaria’s independence day makes it so spectacular, according to Hoskinson.

Vasil St. Dabov, a late Cardano’s Bulgarian community member who served as the Chief Blockchain Advisor at software R&D company Quanterall before passing away in December 2021, is honored by having his hard fork dubbed Vasil.

Hoskinson also discussed the Vasil upgrade’s demanding workload, claiming that many team members were “overloaded.”

He said that to launch something of this scale and scope, better foundations and protocols must be built. “We may have somewhat overstepped Vasil’s comfort zone.”

Probably the most difficult change an ecosystem has ever had to make.
