Per data from the on-chain data provider, Polkadot’s development activity in the last 30 days totaled 441.5.
In assessing a network’s performance, development activity is an important metric. This is because it provides insight into the level of engagement and commitment of a project’s community and development team.
A high level of development activity, as indicated by the large number of GitHub commits, suggests that the project is active and continuously being worked on, which can prove its potential for growth and success in the long term. Additionally, it can mark how well developers are adopting the blockchain and how quickly new features and improvements are being added.
The rally in Polkadot’s development activity in the last month is attributable to the increased upgrades and activity on the network’s parachains. For example, Mantra Network, a privacy-preserving DeFi stack built on Polkadot, announced the launch of its MantaPay testnet v3 on 29 December 2022.
Also, Bifrost Finance, a Parachain on Polkadot and Kusama, announced the launch of its new cross-chain function, allowing users to switch easily between its native token BNC and Astar Network’s ANC.
