The head of the blockchain company IOHK, Charles Hoskinson, spoke about plans to hold Cardano hard fork in mid-February. He said this during a stream on YouTube.
Hard fork aims to update the Cardano consensus algorithm. During the upgrade, the Ouroboros Bizantine Fault-Tolerant (OBFT) protocol will be implemented.
What changes will occur after the implementation of OBFT, the head of IOHK did not explain. At the same time, he noted that the integration of Ledger hardware wallets with Daedalus wallet software will soon be implemented.
At this stage, the project is negotiating with exchanges, as well as checking the readiness of the infrastructure. Nevertheless, according to Hoskinson, “everything is going well” and they do not plan to postpone the hard fork.
