Cardano’s Vasil hard fork, developed by Input Output and the Cardano Foundation, will take place on September 22, roughly one week after the expected date of the Ethereum merger, September 15. Cardano developer Input Output tweeted Friday that Vasil’s upcoming upgrade will be the most significant yet as it will boost network capacity and reduce transaction costs.
Participants in a blockchain network may choose to split the chain (hard forks) for a variety of reasons, creating two distinct implementations of the same protocol or network.

“The upgrade will also bring improvements to Plutus to enable developers to create more powerful and efficient blockchain-based applications.”
Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson, a former co-founder of Ethereum, discussed the upcoming Vasil hard fork in a Friday morning broadcast.
“What is so amazing about that date is that it is so random and coincidental [sic] It is Bulgarian Independence Day.
Bulgarian community member Vasil Dabove Street, who was the chief blockchain advisor at software research and development firm Quanterall until his untimely death in December 2021, inspired the name “Vasil” for the next Cardano fork. Hoskinson echoed that sentiment, adding that many partners felt “overburdened” by the broad nature of the work involved in Vasil’s update.
