Cardano tops the list of assets with the highest GitHub development activity in the past week, with an activity count over three times Ethereum’s.
Cardano saw GitHub development activities three times Ethereum’s count, leading on weekly development activity amongst all mainstream assets, as disclosed by the Santiment-powered GitHub analytics tool, ProofofGithub, on Twitter.
Crypto influencer and host of the NFT Alpha Show Deezy highlighted the metric in the late hours of Friday as he commented on ProofofGithub’s disclosure. “Cardano has 3X the GitHub activity of Ethereum,” he said in a tweet.

Data from the disclosure affirms the metric, as Cardano secured the top spot on the list with a massive GitHub development activity count of 1,116 in the past week. Meanwhile, Ethereum secured the fifth position, having a weekly development count of only 363.
Other assets with a higher development activity count than Ethereum are:
- Polkadot, with 418;
- Kusama which had 418 as well;
- Cosmos, with a count of 366.
Notwithstanding, Ethereum’s development activity count dwarfed five other assets on the top 10 list, including:
- Decentraland, with 326;
- Internet-Computer, having 315;
- Vegaprotocol which had 240;
- Hedera-hashgraph, with a count of 222; and
- Flow, having 221.
Cardano appears to have been miles ahead of all other crypto assets in terms of development activity in the past week, which suggests a tremendous measure of dev. Contributions. An increased number of development activities counters any claims of the network being a ghost chain and mitigates worries of abandonment.
Blockchain analytics platform Coin98 ranked Cardano second in active developer count in mid-October, only behind Ethereum. According to Coin98, Cardano had about 139 development activity contributor counts at the time of the analysis.
Meanwhile, IOHK released a development update on the Cardano network on the same day. The report revealed that the network had 102 projects launched, with 1,120 projects building on it as of October 14.
Additionally, the official Twitter account of the Cardano Foundation revealed some outstanding feats on the network on October 31 in an attempt to dispel “ghost chain” claims. Data from a shared graphic indicated a 4.9% surge in native tokens on the network, with the number of Plutus scripts rising by 4.59% from August to a value of 3,535.

Amidst this surge in development activity, Cardano has relished the recent attention it is getting. Crypto hardware wallet developer Ledger announced the launch of the much-anticipated Cardano Babbage v5.0.0, allowing users to leverage Plutus in creating Cardano smart contracts on Ledger.
Furthermore, Binance Pay recently added support for Cardano stablecoin issuer COTI, as The Crypto Basic reported on October 27. The move would allow Binance Pay users to send, receive, and make payments with COTI.
