The videos were a result of a Friday thread from Cardano ecosystem engineer Adam Dean.</p> <figure><div> <p lang="en" dir="ltr">&#129525; (1/n) It's important to point out today that the <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Cardano?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank" rel="noopener">#Cardano</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Testnet?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank" rel="noopener">#Testnet</a> is **catastrophically** broken due to a bug in Cardano Node 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&hellip;</p>&mdash; Adam Dean (@adamKDean) <a href="https://twitter.com/adamKDean/status/1560295448333520896?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank" rel="noopener">August 18, 2022</a> </div></figure><p>The developer stated that a previously unknown problem in <strong>Cardano&rsquo;s Node v 1.35.2 that generates incompatible forks</strong>&mdash;which managed to slip under the radar of the earlier testing&mdash;is to blame for the testnet being &ldquo;catastrophically broken.&rdquo;</p> <h2> Cardano released Cardano Node v1.35.3 on two different testnets</h2> <figure><figure><a href="https://news.coincu.com/119224-the-vasil-hard-fork-and-cardanos-testnet/"><img loading="lazy" width="800" height="444" data-id="119228" src="https://news.coincu.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/Cardano11-1-800x444.jpg.webp" alt="What Is Going On With The Vasil Hard Fork And Cardano&#039;s Testnet?" srcset="https://news.coincu.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/Cardano11-1-800x444.jpg.webp 800w, https://news.coincu.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/Cardano11-1-800x444.jpg-300x167.webp 300w, https://news.coincu.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/Cardano11-1-800x444.jpg-768x426.webp 768w, https://news.coincu.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/Cardano11-1-800x444.jpg-750x416.webp 750w" sizes=" 800px) 100vw, 800px" title="What Is Going On With The Vasil Hard Fork And Cardano&#039;s Testnet? 2"></a>What Is Going On With The Vasil Hard Fork And Cardano&rsquo;s Testnet?</figure></figure><p>Dean pointed out that v1.35.3 is likewise <strong>&ldquo;incompatible and incapable of synchronizing&rdquo;</strong> with the original testnet and that the two testnets are &ldquo;without a block history&rdquo; because the bulk of operators switched to v1.35.2 to mimic the Vasil hard fork.</p> <p>However, Hoskinson has stated that the coding flaw discovered in that <strong>node version had been fixed in the 1.35.3 upgrade</strong>, expressing his irritation that additional testing would cause the hard fork to be delayed further:</p> <p>&ldquo;We of course could as a community delay the launch of Vasil for a few months to retest code that&rsquo;s already been tested a dozen times and is already running. Is that worth it to all the DApp developers who have been waiting for this update for almost a year now?&rdquo;</p> <p>During an Ask-Me-Anything on Friday, Hoskinson also said that there&rsquo;s been an <strong>&ldquo;unfair narrative&rdquo;</strong> floating around Cardano and its testnet issues, which he called &ldquo;incredibly corrosive and damaging.&rdquo;</p> <p>&ldquo;You can&rsquo;t conflate a failed testnet with the mainnet because testnets are constructed and destroyed all the time in this industry. That&rsquo;s their point. [&hellip;] They are in no way, in any way harm Cardano itself.&rdquo;</p> <p>The reality of something this big and intricate is that one can easily get caught up in the things that aren&rsquo;t working well and overlook the ones that are, Hoskinson said on Sunday.</p> <p>He continued by saying that the Vasil hard fork will produce &ldquo;better useful code&rdquo; and &ldquo;faster developments&rdquo; as well as a new governance method and more inclusive institutions.</p> <p>&ldquo;Moments that give us a chance to change and grow. Let&rsquo;s get Vasil done together and then let&rsquo;s move on to higher ground and fix some of the original sins of the project so Cardano can also grow to its next level.&rdquo;</p> <p>The most recent delay of the Vasil hard fork this year occurred at the end of July as a result of problems found on the testnet. Hoskinson expressed optimism that the Vasil hard fork will ship &ldquo;imminently&rdquo; during the AMA, nevertheless.</p> <p>&ldquo;The features are there, they&rsquo;ve worked, they&rsquo;ve been tested thoroughly, and there&rsquo;s a high degree of confidence in them. There&rsquo;s no reason for it not to get over the finish line imminently.&rdquo;</p> <p>Cardano&rsquo;s&nbsp;ADA&nbsp;is priced at $0.45 on Monday, having dropped 18.5% over the last week.</p> <figure><figure><img loading="lazy" width="1024" height="478" data-id="119226" src="https://news.coincu.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/image-1646-1024x478.png" alt="image 1646" srcset="https://news.coincu.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/image-1646-1024x478.png 1024w, https://news.coincu.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/image-1646-300x140.png 300w, https://news.coincu.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/image-1646-768x358.png 768w, https://news.coincu.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/image-1646-750x350.png 750w, https://news.coincu.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/image-1646-1140x532.png 1140w, https://news.coincu.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/image-1646.png 1396w" sizes=" 1024px) 100vw, 1024px" title="What Is Going On With The Vasil Hard Fork And Cardano&#039;s Testnet? 3">ADA Daily Chart.
