Vasil HardFork is Around the Corner
The Vasil hardfork combination event, which has been met with several holdups and postponements, is named in honor of the renowned community ambassador and Bulgarian Mathematician, Vasil Dabov, who passed away on December 3rd, 2021.
According to Cardano Founder Charles Hoskinson, the final stages of the Vasil hardfork execution are looking good. Charles Hoskinson, who is also the CEO of Input Output Global (IOG), the body tasked with the development of Cardano and its native token ADA, recently stated that there is neither conflict nor quality issue with Vasil hardfork deployment.
