According to the most recent Cardano community discussion and specifics from the IOHK report on the Vasil hardfork, decentralized applications built on the Cardano network will not immediately receive all capabilities and upgrades. It will most likely take weeks, if not months, for Cardano-based dApps to obtain updates.
Why will Vasil’s new features take so long to be implemented?
The revision of the Plutus script’s logic, submission to a new blockchain, and other benefits detailed in the most current Vasil-related post will most likely take some time to reach specific decentralized apps.
The key cause is the difficult process of transferring solutions based on the existing blockchain version to the new foundation. Most users assume that existing solutions in the sector, such as Minswap and SundaeSwap, will require months to rewrite a vast amount of scripts and do a thorough audit.
When the network implements new features via hardfork, solutions built on it adopt current changes slowly. The similar method could be compared to Ethereum’s EIP-1559 update, which introduced a fee burning mechanism that was fully implemented by all pools only a month later.
Users are dissatisfied with Cardano-based apps’ delayed implementation of new updates. The newly formed smart-contract technology, unveiled in August 2021, is only now gaining prominence in the blockchain space “thanks” to the lengthy deployment procedure.
The first significant impact felt by cryptocurrency users was just in March, when various decentralized applications such as Minswap, SundaeSwap, and Wingriders were fully deployed, garnering more over $300 million in TVL and propelling ADA’s into a new 50% rally.
