Cardano finishes 1st on this front, but what about ADA?
- Cardano’s development activity reached new heights as code commits grew.
- Daily active addresses and transactions on the network fell considerably.
Cardano [ADA] witnessed a massive surge in terms of development activity over the last few weeks. As a result, Cardano outperformed other cryptocurrencies in this regard.
Coders “commit” to Cardano
New data revealed that Cardano achieved the highest number of code commits in the past 365 days, surpassing Ethereum, Polkadot, and the BNB network.
Code commits are essentially changes made to the source code, and having the highest count indicates an active and ongoing effort to improve the Cardano network.
The high number of code commits could be the result of the development team trying to hit the targets set for it in 2024. The technical director of Cardano recently took to Twitter to state the things the Cardano team has set out to achieve this year.
Yo. I am back. Roadmap for the year:
– Keep building amazing OSS (Ogmios upgrade coming + Kupo read-only replicas).
– More Aiken tooling (property testing & off-chain code gen from blueprints)
– A cool tech-centric conference: https://t.co/ulMdFaocUl
– MORE education

State of the network
At press time, things were looking bleak for the network. Daily active addresses on Cardano had plummeted in the last few days. Coupled with that, the daily transactions occurring on the network also fell.
Moreover, in the DeFi sector, it was seen that the TVL and DEX volumes of Cardano network took a plunge. A slowdown in the DeFi sector could potentially harm future prospects of the network.
In terms of the NFT sector, the volume at which Cardano NFTs were trading remained consistent over the last month.
On average, the daily trading volume of these NFTs was around $120,000. The OMEN and Ape Society collections were the most dominant in the space and accumulated a large market share.
