Crypto Winter Bites as EOS Faces Lagging Blockchain Development

Development on $3.3 billion cryptocurrency EOS has slowed down to an absolute crawl and it’s not the only smart platform where GitHub commits have plunged in recent months.

Data From Longhash: Major Crypto Blockchain See Reduced Commits:

Development on EOS Ethernet and Tron has drastically slowed over past three months, considering the holiday month of December where it is well known that development virtually everywhere slow down there are still two months that is November and January which is a good development time to account for. Out of more than 4000 commits in the past 12 months, only 114 took place in the past three months on EOS. Etheruem and Tron also found downfall but though not an extreme.

According to the sources of CryptoMiso, none of the three blockchains were among the most active in terms of development.

Insolar is by far the most active development team with some Etheruem linked projects represented the same as well. Raiden and Ox, both scaling solution for Etheruem have a high degree of development by comparison to the vast see of blockchain platform. Intrestingly Aelf continues its rapid development. A progress report from earlier this month gives a positive sign for the community. If we tend to examine the table to the past nine months, instead of past three EOS ranks at 9.

Eos Developers Counts Steady Despite Plunging Commits

In the past nine months more than 100 EOS contributors had over 2,700 commits approved but in the past three months, it is 114 by more than 100 contributors. At very least, the number of developers working on EOS hasn’t declined. The major concern of news followers is that EOS blocks are oversized Apparently the chain is so large now that many node operators no longer want to run full history node which can be curtailed for some aspects of EOS development. EOS is considered different among blockchain here because it has an arbitration court that can reverse a fraudulent transaction.

When looking at the outside of the GitHub development, the number of commits on a punch card might seem the most important figure. In fact, a single commit can change one line or every file in the codebase.

It’s possible that Eos development team can change its policy on pushing commits, choosing to squash changes together and release an update on a more consistent schedule. The sustained number of developers would indicate that the development is actually ongoing but perhaps the methodology of publishing changes has been altered. It is also possible that the decline in developer activity is attributable to the crypto winter several early company members left to block one considered as the primary developer of Eos.
