Vasil does not have quality issues
As reported by U.Today, Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson stated during a recent Livestream video that the Vasil upgrade does not have any quality issues. Hoskinson stated, “We have high confidence on our end that the engineering behind 1.35.3 is solid.” He also allayed fears by saying that Cardano was not in a crisis, saying, “Things are for the most part working.”
The Cardano creator further added, “The very fact that the bug was discovered on the testnet in the first place shows that the testing processes are working.” The code has been “extensively and exhaustively” tested. The likeliness of discovering a bug is “very low.”
This was said by the founder of Cardano in reaction to SPO allegations of testnet failure and hurried preparations for Vasil. The most recent IOG report shows steady progress on the Vasil hard fork and has no mention of testnet problems.
