The Twitter post hinted that the date for the Vasil hard fork could be imminent after a delay of several months. Additionally, SPOs running node 1.35.3 will now account for over 40% of mainnet block production. This can be considered some nice improvements compared to previous weeks.
The IOG’s goal is to push that number to 75% before the hard fork, and new data suggests they may be on the way soon. Additionally, IOG mentioned that no additional bugs were found in recent tests, suggesting that the Vasil hard fork is imminent.
Additionally, IOG revealed that Binance is also updating its Cardano node, which will ensure a smooth hard fork rollout in the near future. Interestingly, Cardano was also included in the “Top Brand Intimacy of 2022” list at No. 26, further enhancing the value of the company.
