As per Santiment data, Cardano, Kusama and Polkadot top the list of the most developed assets ahead of Ethereum in 2021.

In the list of the top 20 projects by aggregated development activity based on publicly available Github information for 2021, Cardano, Kusama and Polkadot ranked in the top three ahead of Ethereum. The listing positions Ethereum as the fourth-most-developed asset and Gnosis as fifth.

The deductions were arrived at from the development data of thousands of public Github repositories tracked by Santiment. The development data utilized excluded various "non-dev events," like comments on commits, people following an issue, downloading releases and avoiding inflated development activity.

Aside from "pure" development activity, Santiment also tracks the number of active contributors to any project's Github repo for broader insights about their "developer network."

While development activity has little to no impact on near-term market trends, it may be a healthy indicator of the project's long-term growth. It shows the team's month-to-month dedication to building a viable product, improving and upgrading its features and sticking to the long-term roadmap.

Cardano tops most developed asset in 2021

According to Santiment Data, Cardano ranks topmost in the list of the top 20 projects by aggregated development activity. Cardano also claimed the top place in the amount of active Github contributors over the last 12 months, with an average of 53 daily contributors to their Github repo.

As U.Today earlier reported, IOHK CEO Charles Hoskinson states that Cardano has over 178 projects built on its website from Jan. 1 to date; 13 projects were launched this quarter, while three are about to debut in Q4. Fast forward to 2022, and 11 projects have been earmarked for launch in the first quarter of the coming year.
