Crypto Winter Bites as EOS Faces Lagging Blockchain Development

By Development on $3.3 billion cryptocurrency EOS has slowed to an absolute crawl, and it’s not the only smart contract platform where GitHub commits have plunged in recent months.

Major Crypto Blockchains See Reduced Commits

According to data from Longhash, development on EOS, Ethereum, and Tron hasdrastically slowed over the past three months.

If we consider the holiday month of December, where it is well-known that development virtually everywhere slows down, there are still two full months (November and January) of good developer time to account for. Of more than 4,000 commits in the past 12 months, only 114 took place in the past three months on EOS.

Ethereum and Tron also saw declines, though not as extreme.

Insolar is by far the most active development team, with some Ethereum-linked projects represented as well. Raiden and 0x, both scaling solutions for Ethereum, have a high degree of development by comparison to the vast sea of blockchain platforms. Interestingly, Aelf continues its rapid development. A progress report from earlier this month gives positive signs for the community.
