In total 57% of 1.35.3 nodes are running the Cardano mainnet. Developers have been busy testing the 1.35.3 node and component integration. Major bugs have been identified while successfully testing. A total 9 minor bugs in the backlog have been detected.

Two more benchmarks have to be accomplished before the hard fork is to happen. 25 exchanges must be upgraded at the node to provide 80% of liquidity. Also 10 DApps testing against node 1.35.3 on the pre-production testnet.

Binance and a number of major exchanges have already announced the upgrading of the Cardano Node. 4 out of 10 top DApps have confirmed testing against node 1.35.3.
