Cardano, the third-generation blockchain project that is maturing into a full smart contract platform, has been outperforming other top blockchain projects, such as Ethereum, Polkadot, Kusama, among others, based on development activity on Github, the platform that provides Internet hosting for software development and version control using Git.
Cardano is accustomed to leading the field based on development activity on Github on a monthly basis. The emerging smart contract platform has come on top once again, beating competitions from Ethereum, Kusama, Polkadot, and a number of other blockchain projects.
The data credited to the crypto analytics firm, Santiment, but shared by CryptoDiffer on Twitter, shows that Cardano had 513 daily average Github commits in the last 30 days, while Kusama and Polkadot had 421 commits respectively. But the largest smart contract platform Ethereum managed to accrue only 305 daily average Github commits throughout the last 30 days.
CryptoDiffer tweeted, “TOP Blockchains by average daily development activity on Github in the last 30 days.”

Cardano’s Journey to Smart Contract Functionality
Over the past 30 days, the Cardano ecosystem has welcomed a number of notable developments, which needed developers behind the development of Cardano to commit a lot of codes, hence the top result on Github.
On the first day of March, Cardano welcomed the multi-asset era following the successful implementation of Mary protocol upgrade.
Since the launch of the multi-asset era and the realization of full decentralization of block production on the Cardano blockchain, the group of developers behind the project has not stopped working. What is next now is the huge leap towards Goguen era.
A couple of hours ago, it was bought to the notice of Cardano community members that a countdown to the Goguen era, which will bring the full functionality of smart contracts to Cardano, has been made available.
Based on the information on the website, Goguen will be deployed in 115 days’ time. But the journey is expected to start with Alonzo node in 10 days’ time.
With all these current and future developments, Cardano development commits on Github are expected to continue to increase, which would further lead to topping other blockchain projects as usual.
