20 Blockchain Projects With the Most Dev Activity on Github — May, 2019Fun Fact: 17 of them are BUIDLing with Ethereum.You can tell a whole lot about the state of a project or application by the amount of activity it has on Github. Projects with lots of action are more likely to be in the midst of BUIDLing and shipping, while a Github that’s populated only by lonesome tumbleweeds is a sign of a project that’s either not moving forward or is so perfect that it doesn’t require any more work — and that is something of a rarity.State of the Dapps does a great job of harvesting data from Github, including commits, pushes, issues, and pull requests from open source projects representing the most notable platforms that support decentralized apps — including Ethereum, EOS, Steem, and xDai. The result is a bird’s eye view of developer activity in the blockchain space.Although this information is by no means a definitive picture of the blockchain ecosystem for countless reasons, the Github data illustrates some interesting trends regarding developer activity in the blockchain space in regards to open source projects.The month of May showed significant changes in rankings for activity on Github, with projects like ARK, Santiment, AION Network, Raiden, and Kyber Network all slipping out of the Top 20 after a good showing in the previous month of April. In total, May housed less Github commits than April — particularly for projects higher up in the order — suggesting perhaps that many projects were busy trekking to Blockchain Week to do the business that development makes possible. Now it’s time to get back to work!However, Ethereum still dominates the charts from top to bottom. Of the top 20 projects for developer activity, 17 are built on Ethereum, 1 is built on Tendermint, 1 is built on EOS, 1 is Aelf itself, and 1 integrates POA alongside Ethereum. This suggests what many already know: that the vast majority of blockchain developer activity is on the Ethereum network.Below are the top 20 projects on State of the Dapps by developer activity over the past 30 days as of June 4th, 2019…1. StatusMobile Ethereum OS Status has long been a leader in the blockchain space, and recent activity on Github — with 7133 events in the past 30 days — indicates that the sizable Status team continues to outperform challengers while developing the iOS, Android, and desktop version of the Status app.2. CosmosAfter launching a Mainnet iteration, the Tendermint-based blockchain interoperability platform Cosmos has rocketed up to the second position on Github this month with a whopping 4245 events.

The Storj team has been holding steady with approximately 4084 events this month.4. AragonEthereum mainstay Aragon has long since stood out for being a well-run operation, and its platform for creating decentralized organizations presents a powerful proposition. Now live on Mainnet, the Aragon team committed 3292 events to Github over the past 30 days, just down slightly from the month prior, suggesting strong and continued developmental growth.5. AugurIf you didn’t laid down a crypto wager on Liverpool winning the Champions League Final, do you even blockchain?
