He also noted that IOG is focusing on solving some problems in the testnet, gradually moving towards the release of Cardano 1.35.2 software version. The new client fixes a number of bugs identified during testing, including those related to decentralized applications.

“The goal is to fix the latest problems as we get closer to the hard fork. We are fixing tester-focused features to get things right and without rush,” he added.

Vasil includes four proposals to improve the Cardano network, focused on reducing transaction fees and improving network security. Update  will also simplify interaction with the project's smart contracts. 

Initially, the hard fork was planned to be activated at the end of June 2022, but then the date was postponed to the next month.
