Progress towards the Vasil mainnet upgrade continues:
For this upgrade to be triggered, the IOG & Cardano Foundation
teams are tracking three critical mass indicators the community will need to reach before the Vasil upgrade will be triggered.
The three critical indicators:
- 75% of mainnet blocks are being created by the final Vasil node candidate (1.35.3)
- Approx. 25 exchanges upgraded (representing c.80% of ada liquidity)
- Top 10 DApps by TVL confirm they’ve upgraded to 1.35.3 on PreProduction & are ready for mainnet.
The Cardano SPO community has been busy over the weekend. And we’re delighted to report that more than 75% blocks are now being minted by nodes supporting 1.35.3. First box ticked.

We’d like to see as many as possible upgraded by the time the Vasil upgrade is deployed to mainnet but it would be great to hit this first critical metric so soon.
Thanks to the great efforts of the incredible SPO Cardano community. Let’s keep going & get that number up?!
Exchanges including: Exchanges Binance | Kucoin | Kraken | Crypto | Gate | Htbtc and many others have also communicated they have started the integration and testing process. The Cardano Foundation Exchange team continues to support.
For a full list:
Many of the leading DApps are also all hard at work. You can check how they are doing and overall progress against all three metrics on the page linked above which we update regularly as we receive information.
We continue to track closely the remaining metrics. Once achieved, in collaboration with the Cardano Foundation team, the upgrade process will be triggered for the Cardano mainnet.
Remember, this is software development and proper testing across the ecosystem is vital to ensure the upgrade is delivered safely and securely.
