Despite crypto market turbulence, active contributors across Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Solana’s top projects have increased by an average of 71.6% per year since January 2018, according to a new report.
The findings come from an August 2 report sent to Cointelegraph by technology investment firm Telstra Ventures, which found that Solana had the most significant annual increase in monthly-active contributors, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 173% since January 1, 2018.
Contributors are developers who push updates to code on GitHub, a code repository for computer programs.
Ethereum was second with a 24.9% compound annual growth of monthly contributors since 2018 and Bitcoin was third with a “slow and steady” 17.1% yearly increase.
Telstra also noted that it found Ethereum to have the “largest and strongest” developer community
