The ninth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap is leading in terms of blockchain development activity, according to analytics platform Santiment.
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.
Ethereum sits at number nine recording 287.67 GitHub commits, and derivatives trading-focused network Vega Protocol (VEGA) rounds off the list of the top ten blockchains by developer activity with 285.57 GitHub commits.
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.”Don't Miss a Beat – Subscribe to get email alerts delivered directly to your inbox
