The findings regarding Cardano’s dominance in development activity came from ProofOfGitHub. The latter tracks daily development activity on GitHub.

The new report is based on observations made in the last 24 hours at the time of writing. The results revealed that Cardano managed to outperform its competitors such as Polkadot.

While high levels of development activity are good for boosting investor confidence, it is important to think about what that development is about. Another recent Cardano host points to a report revealing that Cardano currently has more than 4,800 smart contracts. In addition, there are more than 1,100 projects under development on the network.

A metric of Cardano’s development activity reveals that the network has maintained healthy development levels over the past 12 months. This is despite the backlash the ADA experienced during the same time.

Web development activity bottomed out over the holiday but has since recovered. Another interesting note about Cardano is that the tide is turning in favor of daily on-chain transaction volume in profit rather than loss.

In-loss transaction volume particularly dominated at the end of the year, while in-profit transaction volume accounted for the bulk in January 2023.

An important point to note is that transactions are now relatively low compared to three-month highs. This reflects the strong rise in ADA that has been observed since early January.

Notably, the ADA bears briefly regained their dominance in the middle of the month but it was short lived and now the cryptocurrency has reached a new two-month high.

Cardano is certainly off to a healthy start this year, judging by the price action and strong development activity. It will be interesting to see how these factors play out in network performance as well as the value of ADA over the next few months.
