Top Cardano Developer Says Testnet is “Catastrophically Broken” Due to Bug

The Cardano Vasil hard fork may suffer another delay as Adam Dean, a prominent Cardano developer, has reported that the Cardano testnet is “catastrophically broken” after new bugs were discovered in the codes.

Cardano Testnet Is “Catastrophically Broken”

Taking to Twitter, Adam Dean explained that the Cardano testnet has been “catastrophically broken” by a new bug that was discovered by the team in the Cardano Node v1.35.2. Dean wrote:

According to Dean, the bug discovered in Node v1.35.2, which is the basis for the upcoming Vasil hard fork, was due to developers rushing to meet the deadline for the mainnet upgrade.

Vasil Is Being Rushed

Dean explained that since most node operators upgraded to 1.35.2 on testnet, Node 1.35.3 is now incapable and incompatible with syncing. Dean said that the Cardano team is testing 1.35.3 on two new testnets that don’t have a block history.

According to Dean, the rush involved in deploying the Vasil hard fork is giving him an uneasy feeling. He urged Input Output and CEO Charles Hoskinson to salvage the situation to deploy the tooling needed for a disaster recovery plan.

On the Flipside

  • The Cardano team has also launched Cardano Rosetta 1.8.0, which will primarily serve as an integration tool to hasten and simplify the integration of Cardano’s Vasil hardfork.

Why You Should Care

The Vasil upgrade is supposed to be Cardano’s biggest event, and community members have called on the team to not rush the process for the best result.
