Cardano is a decentralised platform that will allow complex programmable transfers of value in a secure and scalable fashion. It is one of the first blockchains to be built in the highly secure Haskell programming language. Cardano is developing a smart contract platform which seeks to deliver more advanced features than any protocol previously developed. It is the first blockchain platform to evolve out of a scientific philosophy and a research-first driven approach. The development team consists of a large global collective of expert engineers and researchers.
Two well-known and influential Cardano developers warned about some problems in the test network in the middle of testing the Vasil update.
- Cardano test network is “catastrophically broken,” says developer.
- Developers warn of problems in latest version of Cardano Node.
- Founder Charles Hoskinson responded to the criticism.
- Hoskinson: “I’m seriously tired of taking the blame.”
As a long-awaited update of the Cardano , Vasil new controversy is surrounding the community.
The developer of Cardano Adam Dean, went to Twitter on Thursday night to warn that the test network (in English testnet an alternative blockchain used by developers for testing. ) of Cardano is in trouble as it has become incompatible with the current version of the blockchain a distributed ledger system. A sequence of blocks, or units of digital information, stored consecutively in a public database. The basis for cryptocurrencies. client software.
It is important to note today that Cardano t estnet is ** catastrophically ** broken due to a bug in Cardano Node v 1.35.2. This was the version we were previously told was “Tested and Ready” for Vasil’s hardfork.
???? (1/n) It’s important to point out today that the #Cardano #Testnet is **catastrophically** broken due to a bug in Cardano Node the most basic unit of blockchain infrastructure that stores data. v 1.35.2. This was the version that we had previously been told was “Tested and Ready” for the Vasil Hardfork. This bug was only discovered…

Dean, who is a leading ecosystem developer and former operator of the participation group ( staking participation in a proof-of-stake (PoS) system to put your tokens in to serve as a validator to the blockchain and receive rewards. ) of Cardano explained that operators had discovered the flawdespués de que se apresuraron a actualizar en la red principal ( mainnet an independent blockchain running its own network with its own technology and protocol. ) and began to create incompatible forks, causing a decrease in chain density.
The developer also warned that the rush of Input Output the development company behind Cardano to implement Vasil on the mainnet was part of the problem. Dean wasn’t the only prominent developer to issue criticism of the update process.
Developers of Cardano warn of failures
As reported byCryptoBriefingpreviously Input Output (IOG) had assured the operators of independent participation groups that the 1.34.2 version of the Cardano had been thoroughly tested and was ready for implementation.
However, after the majority of the operators of staking were quick to upgrade to the version to simulate the hard fork event from Vasil The groups of operators ATADA y PoolTool descubrieron un critical error in the client a client is software that can access and process blockchain transactions on a local computer. A common application of this is a cryptocurrency software wallet. software which led to the creation of incompatible bifurcations.
After the error was discovered, Cardano released new client software, version 1.35.3, which cannot sync with the original testnet and is currently running on two new testnets without any block a file containing information on transactions completed during a given time period. Blocks are the constituent parts of a blockchain. history, the media outlet adds. IOG CEO and founder of Cardano Charles Hoskinson, asked the operators to upgrade to a newer version. That request led Dean and community developer and influencer Andrew Westberg to publicly voice their disagreement.
Expressing a sentiment the sentiment is the overall mood and attitude of traders and investors in regard to a particular asset or the whole market. similar to Dean’s, Westberg took to Twitter to warn that version 1.35.3 was not ready and required further testing. In a tweet commented that Hoskinson “ isn’t on the same page as your DevOps and test teams ” y encouraged a the community to conduct further trials.
Run 1.35.3 on the preview network. Run 1.34.1 or 1.35.3 on the pre-production network. Wait until the fork is successful and we verify that there are no problems. THEN we can update mainnet.

Dean went a little further in his statements, claiming that the update Vasil which will be carried out by means of a hardfork or hard fork, could have jeopardized the entire blockchain of the Cardano . The developer also noted in a podcast that the project came close refers to the closing price; similar to the same term used in stock trading. to a potentially apocalyptic event, as pointed out by the Bitcoinist .
Hoskinson addresses concerns
Inconveniences occur in the midst of waiting for the update Vasil which was originally scheduled for June 29, but has since been rescheduled for June 30. delayed twice for further testing.
Vasil is an update of Cardano which seeks to increase the scaling capabilities of the network. It has been listed as one of the most important since the fork of the Alonzo which was launched in September last year, as it will allow us to step into the new era of “ Basho “described as a stage of “ optimisation, improved network a network refers to all nodes in the operation of a blockchain at any given moment in time. scalability and interoperability blockchain interoperability, or cross-chain interoperability, is the ability to see and share information across multiple blockchains. “.
Amid the controversy, Hoskinson took to Twitter to respond to the criticism. Taking issue with the developers, the founder categorized the accusations about the “ haste “for the implementation of 1.35.3 as “1. strange and alarmist “.
The code in question has been extensively tested for months by everyone, including SPOs. The code that was a problem in the test network was removed.
“ Of course, as a community, we could delay the release of Vasil for a few months to retest code the action of coding is to write programming statements for a program. that has already been tested a dozen times and is already running. Is it worth it for all the DApp decentralized application, digital application that runs on a blockchain network and does not rely on a single computer. DApps are free from the control and interference of a central authority. developers who have been waiting for this update for almost a year? “, Aggregate.
Hoskinson also stated that he was “ tired of taking the blame “for delays even though the network is decentralised . “ The people who manage the network ultimately decide on the updates, not me. “.
You’re the SPOs, you ultimately decide. I’m seriously tired of taking the blame on both sides. Cardano is decentralized. The people running the network ultimately decide upgrades not me.
