Cardano upgrade ahead, here’s what is ready for Vasil


  • Input Output posted a list of all the cryptocurrency companies and exchanges that are prepared for the much anticipated Cardano Vasil update on Twitter.
  • The Vasil upgrade bears the name of late Cardano community member Vasil St. Dabov, who was adored and respected.
  • Three critical mass indicators that the community must reach for this mainnet upgrade to start will be tracked by the IOG and Cardano Foundation teams.

Thanks to the Alonzo upgrade, there is a tonne of new options for decentralized applications (DApps), decentralized exchanges (DEXs), and decentralized finance (Defi) solutions development on Cardano

Research and development company Input Output took to Twitter to share a list of all those crypto firms, companies, and exchanges that are ready for the much-awaited Cardano’s Vasil update. It had names that included,, WhiteBIT, BtcTruck, OKX, and Revuto. 

Building on past upgrades, Alonzo created a multi-functional framework that made it possible to create smart contracts using Plutus scripts and the native tokens introduced in Mary (Shelley, Allegra, and Mary). It’s time to scale and optimize the ledger to hasten the development of several new apps.

The Vasil upgrade is named in honor of the late Vasil St. Dabov, a beloved and revered member of the Cardano community. Throughput, script efficiency, and block transmission time will all improve as a result of the upgrade, which also makes use of Cardano’s hard fork combinator (HFC) technology.

In preparation for the hard fork combinator event, SPOs, developers, and exchanges are currently performing final integration testing and updating with a node release candidate (1.35.3) that has been provided and updated downstream components.

The most ambitious update initiative for Cardano to date is called Vasil. Before any hard fork is initiated, they need to be certain that the ecosystem is ready and prepared given the complexity of the update and the number of players involved. The IOG and Cardano Foundation teams will monitor three critical mass indicators that the community must meet for this mainnet upgrade to be initiated:

  • Blocks produced by the final Vasil node candidate account for 75% of mainnet blocks (1.35.3)
  • Around 25 exchanges were upgraded, accounting for 80% of ada liquidity.
  • Top 10 DApps by TVL certifying mainnet readiness after upgrading to 1.35.3 on PreProduction.

The IOG team will start the update for the Cardano mainnet once everyone is at ease and prepared, working together with the Cardano Foundation.
