There’s a plethora of analytics available that can assess the strength of blockchain network activity, but there’s one metric that might be overlooked: developer activity.
“You can measure blockchain growth in different ways,” an Altcoin Buzz article said. “Popular metrics are the number of users, TVL, or the number of transactions. And indeed, you can get a lot of information from these stats. However, developer activity is another factor to look for.”
Much like the stock market needs the volume of active buyers and sellers, the blockchain network relies on developer activity to thrive. Using this metric, exchange traded fund (ETF) investors can add this to their arsenal of tools when assessing a fund for potential investment.
“A blockchain that lacks developers, will simply not grow,” the article added. “As a result, developer activity is one of the most important factors for blockchain growth.”
