Daily GitHub Development Activities on Ethereum Beat Polkadot, Cardano

  • In the last 30 days, Polkadot and Kusama experienced more development activities.
  • Ethereum Shapella network upgrade will be live on the testnet next week.

The Ethereum (ETH) blockchain has surpassed the blockchains of Polkadot (DOT) and Cardano (ADA) to become the most active crypto network in terms of daily GitHub development activity.

According to a top-ten list by a tracking account on Twitter today, the ETH network experienced over one hundred more development activities than the Polkadot and Cardano networks in the past 24 hours. Other less popular networks, such as Cosmos, Hedera, Internet Computer, and Vega Protocol, were further behind.

On the other hand, on-chain analytic firm Santiment recently posted that Polkadot and its pre-production network, Kusama (KSM), experienced more development activities over the last 30 days than Ethereum and ADA. Notably, development activity is a metric measuring the continuous actions in a project’s public GitHub repositories, excluding private works of repositories.

The analytic firm noted that it tracks development events using an advanced methodology to scrape data for true Github commits, excluding routine updates by projects such as regular Slack updates.

Interestingly, the Ethereum network, which now leads on daily Github development activities, was in seventh place on the ranking as of last week. The increased activities may be due to the upcoming update to the network next week.

According to an earlier report, the Ethereum Shapella network upgrade will be live on the testnet on February 28. Once the upgrade is completed, validators can withdraw their Ethereum staked on the Beacon Chain to the execution layer.

At the moment, the price of ETH is yet to respond to increased development activities. The coin trades at $1,6070 with barely any significant price movements under a seven-day window.
