Cardano’s Vasil hard fork is once again being delayed as revealed during a live stream earlier today. This might affect ADA’s price negatively.
Cardano’s Creator explains the reason for delay
In the live stream titled “Some Brief Comments on Vasil,” Hoskinson notes that “…the problem is that every time something is discovered, you have to fix it. But then you have to verify the fix and go back through the entire testing pipeline.”
So you get to a situation where you feature complete, but then you have to test, and when you test, you may discover something, and then you have to repair that, and then you have to go back through the entire testing pipeline. So this is what causes release delays. He continued.
The Cardano testnet was hard forked to Vasil functionality on July 3 by the IOG developers. With the release of the initial node v.1.35.0, development continued after the testnet hard fork announcement. Due to the bugs discovered, the IOG teams went on to work on nodes v.1.35.1 and v.1.35.2.
ADA’s rising selling pressure
ADA saw an increase in selling pressure and shredded more than 11% of its value in the last three days. As for now, traders are looking for the next support levels to trade at. Back to $0.4-$0.45. If ADA fails to hold above the $0.5 price level considering the lack of support below it, it might be forced into an extremely bearish scenario.
As of press time, Cardano trades at $0.5098, the situation doesn’t seem bearish nor bullish but the increasing delay in the Vasil upgrade might soon make things go south.
