The cryptocurrency market has managed to continue its development even in the harsh conditions of 2022. As 2023 begins, development teams across major networks are building and expanding their ecosystems. According to GitHub data, projects such as MANA, DOT and ATOM are among the top 10 in terms of development activity.
Top 10 altcoins by GitHub development event as of January 2023
According to data from ProofofGitHub, the metaverse game Decentraland (MANA) was ranked first at the GitHub development event as of January 3, 2023. The Metaverse project is followed by Polkadot (DOT)/Kusama (KSM) with 339.
Projects that managed to enter the top 5; They were Status (SNT), Ethereum (ETH), and Lisk (LSK). Meanwhile, the top ten projects include Ocean Protocol (OCEAN), Cardano (ADA), Solana (SOL), Cosmos (ATOM), and Osmosis (OSMO).
MANA outperforms Cardano in development
Cardano was the highest-development altcoin project on GitHub last year. “There’s a reason we’re number one on GitHub,” its founder Charles Hoskinson said at the start of 2022. Hoskinson also says that this success is not a coincidence:
It’s not because someone sitting in one place randomly clicks a button, it’s because there are too many people operating, too much effort.
In particular, in 2022, Cardano took the lead in terms of development activity in the field of Blockchain protocols, followed by Polkadot, Decentraland, and Cosmos. However, as December draws to a close, Polkadot in particular is outpacing Cardano in terms of daily development activities on GitHub.
