Top Cardano Developer Says Testnet Is “Catastrophically” Broken Due To a Bug

In a thread of tweets a few hours ago, Adam Dean, a top Cardano developer, has revealed that the testnet is catastrophically broken due to a fresh bug discovered in Cardano Node v1.35.2, the version that was said to have been tested and ready for the much-awaited Vasil hardfork.

It can be recalled that Vasil hard fork has been postponed twice within the last three months. It failed to roll out in late June as slated. It was also postponed indefinitely in late July due to newly discovered bugs.

According to Adam Dean, the issue arose because operators rushed to upgrade on mainnet. He said this resulted in the production of incompatible forks and caused chain density to reduce drastically.

Why the Testnet Remains Broken?

Although the issue has been identified, the testnet is still broken because the majority of operators have upgraded to v1.35.2 on testnet in order to simulate Vasil hardfork combinator (HFC) event there.

The prominent Cardano developer further explained that the new version (v1.35.3) is now incompatible and incapable of syncing the chain.

As expected, the delays and the rising issues with the anticipated upgrade are making many community members get frustrated.

In the comments, a supposed Cardano enthusiast wrote, “This is unacceptable for a blockchain that has built its reputation on the robustness of its research and technology.”

Another community member wrote, “Communication around Vasil is not really what I’m expecting… many people are claiming 1.35.3 as final version and pushing for upgrade but I haven’t seen yet a clear confirmation and announcement. Something weird to me here is happening… doesn’t give me full confidence.”

Adam Dean Thinks Vasil Upgrade Is Being Rushed

In the same thread of tweets, Adam Dean showcased his dissatisfaction with the level at which Vasil upgrade is being rushed by the team.

He then called on the creator of Cardano Charles Hoskinson and the team at IOG to develop and deploy the tooling needed for disaster recovery.

Some users are also attributing the rush to Cardano’s stern competition with Ethereum (ETH), the largest smart contract platform. It’s worth noting that the top blockchain is tentatively set for the Merge on the 15th of September.
