Today is my first day as Technical Director of Open-Source Development at @CardanoStiftung ?— KtorZ (@_KtorZ_) May 3, 2022
My role? Making #Cardano open-source development a reality, bit by bit. I'll be working with @_dirkhh and others from the Cardano community to keep the ball rolling;
In his new role, Mr. Benkort will coordinate the open-source (community-driven) technical development of Cardano (ADA) blockchain and its ecosystem.
Cardano's open-source developer Dirk Hohndel will assist him in accomplishing this goal. He is certain that the Cardano (ADA) community will support the next phase of its journey to a fully open-source network.
As covered by U.Today previously, Mr. Benkort is building Hydra, Cardano's first-ever second-layer scaling solution. It is designed to advance the security and performance of Cardano's dApps ecosystem.
Cardano (ADA) on the road to Vasil hardfork
Recently, he stressed that, once launched, Hydra will scale Cardano (ADA) in a Lego-like manner to ensure maximum flexibility for all developers.
As we reported yesterday, Cardano (ADA) ecosystem is getting closer to its most crucial technical update in months, Vasil hardfork. It is set to reconsider numerous elements of Cardano's (ADA) codebase.
As estimated by Cardano (ADA) representatives, Vasil might be implemented in all dApps and DeFis on Cardano (ADA) in the coming months.
