Longhash Report Reveals Ethereum Foundation and MyEtherWallet are the Most Giving Crypto Projects
LongHash is a platform for accelerating the development and understanding of blockchain technology. They recently published a study which took into account crypto projects raising money through donations. After searching for “donate” and then ”accounts” on Etherscan, they found 21 addresses marked as a donation. They then calculated the total amount of Ether received in the history of these donation addresses.
One Ethereum project has raised over $630,000 from just community tips alone.

Notably, FoundationTipJar received the largest amount of any project, at 4,570.89 ETH or $630,000. This is the donation address that is promoted by the Ethereum Foundation and is thus an unsurprising recipient of community attention and support. The address that received the second most ETH donations is labeled MyEtherWallet.
There were some other fascinating conclusions as well. WhiteHatDonation, a team focused on bringing blockchain technology to more non-profit spaces, received a total of 1453.55 ETH from the community. ChainSafe received roughly 1000 ETH, and remaining projects such as ICOAlert, EtherscamDB did not receive a significant amount of ETH.
Just last month LongHash released another report about Ethereum. Their analysts compiled information that they found through GitHub to create a charge that indicates the code contributions of some of the most popular crypto assets in the last month. Based on the data collected, there have been 210 commits pushed by 37 authors to all branches, while the master has 137 commits.
The master has 581 changed files, 101,616 additions, and 20,069 deletions. Comparatively, Tron has seen 30,107 additions and 616 deletions, while BTC has had 22,902 additions and 5,453 deletions. As for EOS and Ripple, Long Hash said that their
“contributions are negligible compared to the modification of Ethereum’s master.”
