Cardano [ADA] ranks first among cryptocurrencies in Github activity
Cardano [ADA] recorded the most Github activity happening in cryptocurrency repositories in 2018. The blockchain registered over 45,000 commits last year and has become the most actively developed cryptocurrency in the cryptoverse. ADA currently ranks 11th among cryptocurrencies by market cap.
Commits refers to the changes made to a software by different developers. This includes all the code changes effected to a software by developers working for a project on Github. According to Coincodecap data, Cardano project has recorded the most number of commits beating major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. The project features 45,758 commits on all of its repositories consisting of 16 different programming languages.
Surprisingly, Bitcoin only has 3269 commits and is ranked 52 in Github activity. Augur, 0x and Ethereum trails behind Cardano in the Github activity ranking list. This implies that Cardano blockchain is the most actively developed blockchain with wide participation from developers on Github.
Sadly, the advancement in technology failed to have a positive influence on Cardano prices. The digital asset has slipped to being the 11th largest cryptocurrency following the bear rally in November 2018. However, progressing technology lays the groundwork for increasing the market value of a cryptocurrency.
Cardano project developed by the IOHK group recently rolled out its new version, Cardano 1.4. The new version boasts many new features that will impact the network functionality. The upgrade has been released after a “huge amount of QA work”. Cardano 1.4 is an update in the Byron phase of the project. The next phase dubbed Shelley phase will help the network to become fully decentralized. The new update lays the groundwork for the network decentralization process. Also, a fork is lined up in Q1, 2019 for the project which will initiate the migration of the blockchain to its next phase. This migration will introduce Cardano 1.5 to the community.
