The latest data from Santiment revealed that Polkadot [DOT] ranked above Ethereum [ETH] and Solana [SOL] as the blockchain with the highest development activity in the past seven days.

While development activity on Ethereum and Solana totaled 78.79 and 67.21, respectively, in the last week, Polkadot logged a development activity index of 3124.14 within the same period.

In addition, as of 18 October, Polkadot recorded a count of 1,400 monthly active developers on the network. This represented a 1400% increment in the count of monthly active developers on the chain on a year-over-year basis. 

There are some concerns 

While development activity on Polkadot continues to rally due to traffic on its parachains, the network has failed to see growth in other regards.

An assessment of the network’s on-chain performance in the last week revealed a decline in the count of daily active users on the network and a drop in its daily revenue.

According to data from Token Terminal, daily revenue on Polkadot has declined consistently in the past 180 days. Reportedly, Polkadot’s daily revenue has dropped by 80.2% in the last 180 days, 37.3% in the last 90 days, 7.3% in the last 30 days, and 26.6% in the last week. 

Toeing a similar path of decline, fees paid to process transactions on the Layer 0 blockchain daily have also dropped, as per data from Token Terminal.

Furthermore, data from Subscan showed a consistent drop in the network’s daily active users since the beginning of the year. After clinching a daily high of 40,360 addresses on 12 November 2021, the count of daily active addresses on Polkadot has since plummeted. As of 18 October, only 1,190 addresses used the chain.

No one is safe

DOT, Polkadot’s native coin, has not been left out of the continued decline that has plagued the network. In the last month alone, the price of the #12 cryptocurrency asset has dropped by 6%. On a year-to-date basis, the asset’s price was down by 77%, data from CoinMarketCap revealed. 

The persistent fall in the asset’s price in the last month resulted in a corresponding decline in its trading volume. According to data from Santiment, DOT’s trading volume dropped by 41%. It totaled $189 million, as of this writing.
