Polkadot and Kusama Lead Crypto Development Activity

Polkadot (DOT) and its canary test network Kusama (KSM) continue to outrun the rest of the crypto space in terms of development activity, according to the crypto analytics firm Santiment. The two projects registered 527.7 notable GitHub commits in the past 30 days, leading all other crypto projects by a large margin.

Benefits of High Development Activity

Santiment notes that high levels of development activity can indicate developers have faith a crypto project will be successful as they are working hard on it in order to make sure it runs smoothly and successfully ships new features for users to enjoy. High levels of development also decreases the possibility that a crypto asset is an exit scam or has been abandoned by its creators as this would not correlate with such high levels of active work by coders and developers.

Ethereum (ETH) competitor Cardano (ADA) was third on Santiment’s list with 450.9 GitHub commits, while Web3 project Internet Computer (ICP) was fourth with 391.1 notable commits in the past thirty days according to Santiment’s data collection methodology which only counts true GitHub commits, not routine updates or minor fixes made daily across multiple platforms within any given cryptocurrency’s ecosystem..
