Which Blockchain Project Had the Most Github Activity in 2018 for Cryptocurrencies?
There are many different ways to measure the activity around several virtual currencies. It is not only possible to do it taking into account their trading volume or user growth but also their activity on Github. Although the market has fallen during 2018, Github shows that development continues to grow in the crypto space.
Several projects have increased their presence in Github and registered a growing activity. The falling prices in virtual currencies did not affect these projects so much. There is a website that is called Cryptomiso and it measures Github activity for crypto enthusiasts to observe their favourite projects.
According to this website, the projects with the largest number of commits were Insolar (INS), 0x and Rchain. They had 7,289, 7,098 and 5,584 commits in 2018 respectively. These were followed by Tron (TRX) with 5,399, EOS with 4,823 and Zuesshield (ZSC) with 4,362 commits.
There is also another site called Coincodecap that tracks all the implementations that each project has. This will provide a larger activity for each of the projects. Cardano (ADA) for example has 45,000 commits in all its repositories, followed by Augur, 0x, Ethereum and Lisk.
Although there are different commits per project, this does not mean that one coin or blockchain is better than another. This helps enthusiasts and analyst have a better outlook about the development that is being undertaken behind each crypto project.
Those projects that have little activity could mean that there are not enough developers working behind it or that the project is not being developed at all. Clearly, these sites can improve the way they measure the activity in Github, however, they showed interesting information that can be used by investors and other enthusiasts.
