ケビン・ルーク氏によると、イーサリアムコミュニティの開発者は 25 万人を越え、上位 100 ブロックチェーンプロジェクトのうち 94 がイーサリアムネットワーク上でローンチされているとのことです。
94 Out of Top 100 Blockchain Projects are Built on Ethereum
According to Kevin Rooke, a cryptocurrency researcher and YouTuber, the Ethereum community already has more than 250,000 developers and 94 out of the top 100 blockchain projects have launched on top of the Ethereum network.
“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 [and thus], 250,000 is a shocking number. Ethereum’s development framework called Truffle already has more than 500,000 downloads and even through the price fall of 2018, development interests have continued to rise,” said Rooke.
The vast majority of cryptocurrencies and tokens apart from payment-focused blockchain networks like Bitcoin, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, and Litecoin are built on top of the Ethereum protocol.
Rooke emphasized that large capital is no longer sufficient to kickstart the process of creating a major blockchain project specifically for decentralized applications. Ethereum’s potential can only be demonstrated through successful Dapps and if developers leave the Ethereum protocol, regardless of its sophisticated architecture and technology, the Ethereum network will lose its value.
