ConsenSys Shares Top 20 Blockchain Applications According to GitHub Activity, 90% on Ethereum
The state of an application can be seen by how much activity it has on GitHub.
GitHub is a development platform that brings together the world's largest community of developers to build, share, and discover better applications.
Applications or projects with the most activity are usually in the development or shipping phase. Whereas, those with little or no activity are either not progressing or have reached their peak, with no extra work required.
State Of The DAPPS
State of the DApps, a not-for-profit curated directory of Decentralized Applications (DApps), helps in the gathering of data from GitHub including pushes, commits, pulls and issue requests from open-source applications.
State of the DApps represents some of the most popular blockchain platforms which support Dapps including
This gives a blanket view of all blockchain based dApps development activities.Although this information may not be a ‘direct reflection’ of the entire blockchain ecosystem, GitHub shows some interesting trends in the open-source blockchain based application development sphere.
Note that 18 out of 20 are BUIDLing with Ethereum, going from 80% to now 90% of the top 20 dApp development projects.
Out of these 20 applications listed below :
- Sixteen (16) are built on the Ethereum blockchain.
- Three (3) are blockchain networks
- One (1) is in the development phase on the EOS network
This shows that the Ethereum blockchain has the most apps development done on it.Below are the top 20 decentralized applications (dApps) with the most activity on State of the DApps in the last 30 days (as at 29th April, 2019).
