Cardano, Kusama and Ethereum are the blockchain projects with the most development activity on GitHub in the past 30 days

June 10, 2020

A recent infographic with data from the Santiment website published by CryptoDiffer shows that blockchain projects Cardano, Kusama and Ethereum lead average daily development activity on Github for the past 30 days.

The proposed methodology for displaying the previous ranking is based on a number of advantageous parameters that are typical of Santiment among which stand out:

Cardano, Kusama and Ethereum are the blockchain projects with the most development activity on GitHub in the past 30 daysCardano, Kusama and Ethereum are the blockchain projects with the most development activity on GitHub in the past 30 days

– If the project shares a repository, it does not “inherit” the events

– Projects cannot change their history

– The development activity not only confirms code, it also reports problems and discusses code changes.

It is worth noting that the Santiment classification It is not based on routine activities that users can perform on Github, such as: B. Changes, comments, number of contributions to repositories, etc.

Cardano’s rise on this occasion coincides with the intense campaign that the development team and its founder Charles Hoskinson had to promote Shelley’s arrivalThe protocol enhancement is expected to be active between June 30 and July 7, 2020.

According to Charles, the network will be distributed at the time the roadmap for the Shelley update is presented, with changes to the bonuses and the hard fork system.

Due to the inherent workload in updating Shelley and the rush to release it for the upcoming July 7th, Cardano’s Github has seen a boom in both code development and implementation in your repository to fix certain source code changes.

As Cointelegraph reported The Shelley Incentivized Testnet (ITN) carries out the final tests of its launch and the new protocol came into being after a difficult period of hard work in its development.

Kusama Network, the project launched by Gavin Wood, CTO of Ethereum, has also done intensive development work over the past 30 days. after entering the scene of his brother Polkadot protocol.

As Wood himself pointed out in a post on May 26, Polkadot’s first candidate chain is not yet final, and Kusama will continue to be its incubator for improvements next to the Polkadot CC1 network.

Gavin Wood launched two almost simultaneous networks: Kusama Network and Polkadot, independent networks based on similar codes. but with the first, with faster governance parameters and lower barriers to entry.

Wood’s idea was that Kusama would serve as an entry point for developers to experience web3 as long as bugs and compilations were polished and then implemented “cleanly” on his sister Polkadot.

Despite this, Both networks work simultaneously with certain use cases and interoperability This allows many platforms to improve their protocols without hard forks.

Kusama has recently approved transactions between the two chains through its Polkawallet products. as it was revealed in the company’s official Twitter account.

The Parity Technologies founding team currently has more than 80 employees on its official github who have implemented code improvements in more than 125 125 branches after Kusama will be integrated into Chainlink in early 2020.

Ethereum is no exception

With the postponed publication of ETH 2.0, the Vitalik Buterin team is not far behind and Its activity is still very interesting in terms of the promised scalability improvements in the source codeas well as the proposed change of consensus from PoW to PoS.

With 245 out of 400 points, the blockchain Ethereum ranks third in Santiment’s ranking based on daily development activities on Github.

With 61 active contributors and over 234 repositories on their official github page The most important old coin had an intense month in May, when the rumors about the delivery of ETH 2.0 for July spread like gunpowder on social networks, a fact that was later denied by its own creator.

With a roadmap that Vitalik marked in a tweet on March 18, The team behind Ethereum tested the capabilities of the new chain and to provide the information about its results several times in time.

However, with the announcement by blockchain company Prysmatic Labs to launch a new test network for the Ethereum 2.0 blockchain called “Onyx”, the ultimate scaling solution appears to be closer than expected and will become active in its official Github repository.

May reports from the Ethereum developer community indicate that the release of the network’s PoS algorithm has been postponed for the current month and that efforts to speed up the polishing of the system with its lucrative reward program for critical bug fighters are paying off.

The infographic presented by CryptoDiffer also contains other interesting projects with high and low profile.judging by their activity on Github indicate that some improvements or technical suggestions appear in their logs.

Among the most notable, we have consolidated projects like Dash, Bitcoin, Æ and Cosmos at the bottom of the table. There are some current projects like Solana, Elrond, ARK and Nexus above the hundredth score.

Adjacent to Ethereum are Golem, Status and Nervos Network. Of the three mentioned, Golem has been one of the most active in the past 30 days thanks to the introduction of its improved version of its Clay Golem Beta 0.23.1 protocol late last month.
