Vasil is Cardano’s most ambitious upgrade

IOHK described it as its most ambitious work, praising the Cardano community for making the upgrade a success.

The Vasil upgrade had faced some delays and was rescheduled a few times before its final launch. Following the Vasil upgrade, Cardano is developing a layer-2 scaling solution, Hydra head protocol.

However, the upgrade’s full functionality will not be available to developers until Sept. 27. According to the team, this is when a new epoch will start, and the new Plutus V2 cost model will be active on the chain.

The community reaction to the upgrade has been positive, with many describing it as a major success. The founder of Abra Global, Bill Barhydt, said:

“Making UTXOs and inputs accessible to scripts/Plutus without spending them is a big win for developers. Well done!”

Scammers try to take advantage

Meanwhile, bad actors tried to exploit the excitement to promote scams.

Several accounts masquerading as Cardano’s Charles Hoskinson offered to distribute millions of ADA tokens to anyone that clicked on a suspicious link.

Hoskinson highlighted these fake accounts in one of his tweets, urging the community to report the accounts.

As of press time, it was unclear if anyone had fallen for these scams.
