CryptoMiso – Rank Cryptocurrencies Based on Github Activity

Share some Bitpinas love:

There are a number of ways in which we can rank cryptocurrencies today. The most popular so far is to rank them according to their market volume. Here at Bitpinas, we use Coinmarketcap’s listing when we mention statements such as “the 7th best-performing cryptocurrency”, etc.

One website, however, uses Github activity to rank them.

CryptoMiso – Cryptocurrency Github Ranking

CryptoMiso is a website that ranks cryptocurrencies based on the number of Github commits they have. Github commits are changes, additions, or revisions made to the code of the cryptocurrency project. The number of commits and recency are good signals if the projects are still active or not.

The Top 10 Cryptocurrencies based on Github Commits

Let’s round up the 10 cryptocurrencies with the most recent major Github commits as of January 30, 2019. (CryptoMiso does not track minor commits to the code, only changes to the Core repository). Let’s also post their Coinmarketcap rankings at the time we wrote this article.

Why is this important?

While you can only see so much in terms of Github commits, investors may want to look at the website to find out if projects are being taken care of. Naturally, there should be a lot of activity on projects that have not yet launch. However, activity on older projects – like in Bitcoin (No. 7 in Github Commits, No. 1 in Coinmarketcap), should help you decide on where to put your investments.

We stress that looking at the number of Github commits is not the only way to judge a cryptocurrency’s value.

Special thanks to bitcoin.com for bringing this website to everyone’s attention.
