According to Mihan Blockchain, the Cardano network’s hard fork Vasil is scheduled to take place in September. The technical preparation of this event includes the following 3 basic conditions:
1- 75% of the blocks created in the mainnet in a time epoch, by the final candidate of version 90 Vasil (Version 1.35.3) has been created. This requirement is roughly equivalent to the assumption that 75% of Depository Pool Operators (SPOs) use version 1.35.3. It should be noted that each epoch lasts approximately 5 days in Cardano.
2- Important decentralized applications of the main network confirm that they have been updated to version 1.35.3.
3- About 80% of Cardano network liquidity upgrade their wallets to the new chain.

Currently, according to the information on the “Network Health” page PoolTool, approximately 58% of mainnet nodes are running version 1.35.3 in the current epoch. Another 17% of SPOs must join this group to fulfill the first condition.
Regarding the second condition, 4 out of 10 Cardano decentralized applications (in terms of TVL) have announced that they have been updated to version 1.35.3.
