According to Santiment data, Cardano remains among the top five fastest developed assets in the last 30 days. In terms of development activity, Santiment reports that Uniswap, Solana and Cardano have been the fastest developed over the last 30 days.
With 386 notable Github submissions per day from its developers, Cardano clinched third place in 30-day development activity. Uniswap remains the fastest developed project on the market and maintains first place with 1,070 Github submissions per day, while second place is held by Solana.
Santiment's metric tracks the development data of thousands of public Github repositories. With more users contributing to a project, the higher place it gets in the ranking.
While development activity has little to no impact on near-term market prices, it may be a healthy indicator of the project's long-term growth. Cardano topped the most developed assets in 2021, U.Today previously reported.
