Cardano: leader in crypto / blockchain development
2020 has been a great year for Cardano (ADA). With Charles Hoskinson at the helm, the company responsible for ADA, Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK) has been working around the clock to deliver new developments for the ecosystem.
In fact, the team made Shelley's long-awaited dream come true. As of July 30, Shelley's hard fork went live on the mainnet successfully, introducing stakes, more security, robustness, and decentralization to the network.
With all these momentous developments, it's no wonder Cardano posted the most activity from developers. The data provided by CryptoDiffer on Twitter show that Cardano had the highest daily developer activity from July to August. The open source smart contract platform even outperformed its direct rival Ethereum in terms of developer activity.
According to CryptoDiffer, Cardano ranks first, followed by Kusama and then Ethereum.

Cardano has the best technology in the industry
In addition to Cardano being ranked as the network with the highest development activity, it has also been ranked as the blockchain protocol with the best technology in the crypto space according to Weiss Crypto Ratings.
The US-based investment rating agency has had Shelley's update on its radar for quite some time. Following its success, Weiss believes that Cardano now has the best overall technology.
In a post on August 5, the rating agency declared:
“Shelley is already reflected in our technology model because we were fully confident that he would come out with this (fork). We're also mulling over the same model where Cardano is capable of running smart contracts and dApps because we think these things will come out eventually, so when Cardano pushes a code update, it's not really reflected in our ratings, unless it's something new. on the roadmap that didn't exist before… As the fundamentals of the blockchain, which is Cardano, improve over time, it will be reflected in our ratings. "
The cryptocurrency industry continues to grow every day and Cardano is emerging as a clear leader in terms of development, technology and innovation. Time will tell if this continues for the rest of the year.
