The top ten cryptocurrencies in terms of Github activity

Which are the top ten cryptocurrencies that have recorded the highest levels of activity in their Github repositories during 2018?

The answer comes from the data collected by CryptoMiso that has created a list of the ten most active virtual currencies.

The ranking, starting from the most active in terms of commits, is the following:

  1. Insolar 7289 commits
  2. 0x 7098 commits
  3. RChain 5589 commits
  4. Tron 5401 commits
  5. EOS 4823 commits
  6. Zeusshield 4362 commits
  7. Nuls 4258 commits
  8. Republic Protocol 4231 commits
  9. Zilliqa 4027 commits
  10. Lisk 3981 commits

Below is a chart showing the time distribution during 2018:

Insolar, a relatively small cryptocurrency with a current capitalisation below ten million dollars, aims to create a blockchain infrastructure for the business sector.

The activity was concentrated at the end of the year, mainly related to the launch of some important upgrades. The development team has 35 programmers.

0x is a project with a much higher capitalisation, about 180 million dollars and wants to provide a blockchain infrastructure for exchange activities and tokenised asset trading.

Even here, the reports speak of big updates made at the end of the year.

Rchain is a blockchain platform project with high decentralisation and cooperative management that currently capitalises under ten million dollars.

The time distribution of the commits, i.e. the revisions on Github, also tells us a lot about the activities of the individual projects.

For example, EOS has shown a very concentrated activity at the time of the launch of its platform:

On the contrary, Zilliqa has a more homogeneous distribution and is linked to the different upgrades:

In general, all these projects can be seen as particularly active and in continuous evolution with good prospects for the future.

An in-depth analysis should be made on the individual commits, i.e. the quality of the revisions performed, but this is a very complex and specialised work.
