  • Cardano ended November with the highest development activity
  • ADA started December with the highest staked ratio amongst all Layer 1 tokens

Leading layer 1 blockchain Cardano [ADA] closed November with a development activity count of 572.67, putting it 18% ahead of the next highest-ranked asset, data from Santiment revealed. Polkadot [DOT] and Kusama [KSM] were in second place as they ended the trading month with a development activity count of 486.13 each.

Cardano notably experienced a surge in development activity following 21 November’s announcement about launching the network’ algorithmic stablecoin, Djed, in 2023. As a result, the development activity count index went up by 22% between 21 – 30 November. This showcased the determination of GitHub developers towards meeting the launch date.

Furthermore, ADA’s growth in development activity, as of 1 December, led other layer 1 native tokens to remain the asset with the highest staked ratio. According to Staking Rewards, ADA had a staked ratio of 71.17%.

However, even though its staked ratio remained the highest, staking rewards were low. It was just 3.43% as of 1 December. On the other hand, tokens like Cosmos [ATOM] offered rewards as high as 19.25%, even with a lesser staked ratio. 

Not all positives for Cardano

While Cardano’s development activity and the quantum of staked ADA rallied, the crypto asset’s market capitalization declined. ADA closed November with a market capitalization of $10.7 billion per data from CoinMarketCap. This represented a 23% drop from the $13.9 billion market capitalization it recorded at the end of October.

The reason for the decline in market capitalization was not far-fetched. This was due to the unexpected collapse of cryptocurrency exchange FTX, which wiped off massive liquidity from the market in just a few days.

ADA, like many crypto assets, struggled to keep their prices up during the FTX debacle. Additionally, CoinMarketCap revealed that ADA’s price dropped by 24% in November. 

Further, TVL held on the Cardano network also fell within the 30-day period under consideration. At $58.8 million as of 30 November, data from DefiLlama showed that the quantum of Cardano’s TVL fell by 16%. At press time, the network’s TVL stood at $59.69 million.
