Cardano’s Vasil hard fork is surely one of the most anticipated upgrades to the network. The parent organization behind the platform – Input Output – took to Twitter today to reveal everything users need to know about it, and also confirmed that it will take place tomorrow – September 22nd.
What is Vasil Hard Fork?
Named after the late Bulgarian mathematician – Vasil Dabov – who was also a very famous and prominent member of the Cardano community and contributor, the upgrade is of great importance to the network. It aims to increase its scalability and overall usability.
Cardano Improvement Proposals (CIP) that will be introduced with the hard fork include:
- CIP-31 (Reference Inputs)
- CIP-32 (Inline Dates)
- CIP-33 (Reference Scripts)
- CIP-40 (collateral results)
- Diffusion Pipelining
Additionally, Input Output broke down the overall changes the protocol will go through once Vasil is live on the mainnet.

The hard fork will also see improvements to the Plutus script come to life, allowing many dApp developers to take advantage of v2 capabilities. Changes to Plutus Core (the scripting language used in Cardan’s book), known as Plutus V2, will bring “a tweaked Plutus interpreter and new cost models for Plutus V1 and Plutus V2 scripts.”
What should ADA owners do?
Input Output made it clear that “an ordinary ADA holder using Cardano for transactions and DApps does not have to do anything, because everything happens mostly behind the scenes.”
This is due to Cardano’s Hard Fork Combinator technology which, according to the team, makes upgrades for end users a seamless and simple affair.
