Why building metrics to track activity on crypto projects?
Cause it represents developers time and resources dedicated to a project. These are valuable indicators for fast/successful/scam cryptos.
- A crypto project development includes different developers repositories which need to be all considered to provide a complete picture of dev activity happening.
- Project forked repositories inherit all commits and contributors of external parent repositories (ex: Bitcoin Gold forked from Bitcoin). Thus the fork date need to be considered to exclude all previous commits/contributors from your analysis.
- Cryptohappen developer activity ranking takes all these pitfalls into account and ranks cryptos according to the actual activity happening on the project itself (Crypto project not open sourced are pushed at the bottom of the ranking)
