According to PolkaProject, a website that tracks the blockchain project’s development activity, there are currently over 370 projects actively building on the platform, which is a significant number compared to its competitors.

In the last two months, Polkadot (DOT)’s aggregate futures open interest has grown by relatively 690% to hit $575 million, making DOT the fourth-largest derivatives market behind Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Cardano (ADA).
