Cardano is the most developed cryptocurrency as ADA surges
According to statistics from Santiment, Cardano has emerged as the blockchain network with the most significant development activity over the last 30 days.
After excluding regular updates, the Cardano blockchain’s GitHub code repository reported 18% more developer activity than any other blockchain, according to data from an on-chain analytics company. In the last 30 days, the repository has received about 500k major development changes.
With over 486k modifications to its repository, Polkadot ranked second in the list. The remaining top ten networks based on developer activity on GitHub were Kasuma, Cosmos, Ethereum, Internet Computer, Status, Decentraland, Filecoin, and Vega Protocol.
In September and October, the Polkadot/Kasuma combined repository had the greatest level of developer engagement, according to statistics on development activity. This conclusion represents a shift from those findings.
The domination of the Cardano blockchain in this measure follows the introduction of numerous new initiatives inside its ecosystem. In November, Input Output Global (IOG), a Cardano core research and development business, announced intentions to launch a new data protection-focused side chain called Midnight with a coin called DUST.
IOG also introduced Hydra for Payments, a completely open-source developer toolkit that will simplify and bring new use cases for the Hydra Head Protocol, their layer 2 scaling solution.
Hydra for Payments will enable developers to install Hydra Heads to create use cases for their decentralized apps, such as bank-to-bank transfers, pay-per-use API services, NFT auctions, and micropayments for light wallets.
COTI stated that Djed, Cardano’s first officially validated, crypto-backed pegged algorithmic stablecoin, will debut in January 2023. Djed is Cardano’s first fully verified, crypto-backed pegged algorithmic stablecoin.
Negatively, the ecology experienced its first severe rug pull and project failure. Ardana, a stablecoin project, and Orbis, a layer-2 solution using zkSNARK roll-up technology, both indicated that work will be halted owing to financing concerns.
ADA, the native cryptocurrency of the Cardano blockchain, has continued to trade with substantial volatility despite the overwhelmingly optimistic ecosystem developments. At the time of writing, ADA is trading at $0.32, up 2.25 percent in the last twenty-four hours. The cryptocurrency’s one-month and yearly declines are around 19% and 75.8%, respectively.
