Cardano Emerges as Top Blockchain Protocol for Dev Activity in 2022

• Cardano has emerged as the leading blockchain for development activity in 2022.
• Santiment noted this in its latest dev-activity metric, shared in a tweet today.
• Behind Cardano was Polkadot (DOT), Cosmos (ATOM), Ethereum (ETH), InternetComputer (ICP), Elrond (EGLD), Flow (FLOW), Optimism (OP), Aptos (APT), and Polygon (MATIC) respectively.

In a major development in the world of blockchain, Cardano has emerged as the leading blockchain protocol for development activity in 2022. This news was shared by Santiment, a leading analytics firm in the blockchain space, in a tweet today.

The development marks a major shift in the blockchain landscape, as Cardano has unseated a number of other protocols to take the top spot. Behind Cardano was Polkadot (DOT), Cosmos (ATOM), Ethereum (ETH), InternetComputer (ICP), Elrond (EGLD), Flow (FLOW), Optimism (OP), Aptos (APT), and Polygon (MATIC), respectively. The trend is remarkable, given that the year has been filled with a bear market that has stunted the growth of many protocols.

However, Cardano has been able to defy the odds and lead the pack in terms of development activity. This is largely due to the active network contributors, which total 53, and the rise in development activity on the network which surpassed 140,000 in 2021. Santiment also noted the state of the Solana and Aptos Blockchain, noting that Aptos had been working hard prior to the mainnet and has since slowed down, while Solana’s development activity has been strong but has been declining steadily through the year.

These developments have been a major boon for the Cardano network, as it has been able to gain significant traction in the blockchain space. The network is now one of the top protocols in the industry and is expected to remain at the top for the foreseeable future.
