The peer-to-peer payments network Hedera (HBAR) comes in at number four, registering 353.67 GitHub commits.

The smart contract blockchain Aptos (APT), which launched its mainnet in October of 2022, lands at number five with 338.77 GitHub commits, followed by Status (SNT), mobile browser and messenger designed to interact with Ethereum (ETH)-based applications, recording 335.87 GitHub commits.

The blockchain oracle Chainlink (LINK) and the interoperable blockchain Cosmos Hub (ATOM) take the seventh and eighth spots with 330.63 and 324.73 GitHub commits, respectively

Santiment notes that it doesn’t count routine updates and uses “advanced methodology” to collect data for “true” GitHub commits only.

The analytics firm has previously said that heavy development activity centered around a crypto project is a positive indication that could mean developers believe the protocol will be successful or the project will soon be shipping new features. It also indicates that there is less possibility that the project is just an “exit scam.”
