Vasil now in final mile

The Vasil update remains in the final mile. As reported by U.Today, there are crucial dates to note. First, on Sept. 19, the mainnet update proposal is expected to be submitted to trigger the hard fork event on Sept. 22, which will also usher in an era of transition from Alonzo to Babbage. It may take five days for Vasil’s capability to be available on the mainnet as IOG states that Vasil’s capability will become available at the start of epoch 366 on Sept. 27. The Plutus V2 cost model will also be available on the mainnet on this date.

In a recent IOG report on ecosystem readiness, 98% of mainnet blocks have already been created by Vasil node candidate 1.35.3, which indicates that the “node readiness” metric has already been completed. Additionally, seven out of the top twelve exchanges by liquidity, namely Binance, Upbit, MEXC, Bitrue, AX, WhiteBIT and BKEX, have indicated Vasil’s readiness.
