“You simply cannot build excellent applications and products without a big developer base behind you. But today, Ethereum has roughly 250,000 developers building on its platform. The industry is still really small. 250,000 is a shocking number. Ethereum’s development framework called Truffle already has more than 500,000 downloads and even though the price fall of 2018, development interests have continued to rise.”
The Youtuber also pointed out on Twitter that only 27 cryptocurrencies have over 400 active addresses. The developers has been consistently choosing Ethereum over the other network to deploy smart contracts and develop tokenized use cases. In the next wave, Tron, EOS, Cardano and NEO could emerge as viable alternatives but they have a lot of ground to make up.
