We fingerprinted 20,000+ code repos and 16M commits to create this Q1 2019 Dev Report. We are excited to introduce this as the first of a series of reports that dig in to where crypto developers are focused.
"A recent speech from a CFTC commissioner is concerning for free software development"
"Ultimate Guide to EOS Smart Contract Security. The crypto community became skeptical when the World’s biggest ICO, EOS launched in June 2018 and it got freezed out for 2 days due to a software bug. But fast forward 4 months and EOS today accounts for more than double the transactions that Ethereum does today. Through the promise of free and faster transactions, the topmost Dapp of EOS has about 13,000 daily active users compared to just 2,000 of Ethereum’s topmost Dapp."
"Good blockchain applications also require an ecosystem to support it. Thus, the programming language on which a blockchain platform is built is one of the major factors in its evaluation."
"Following are some of the most common techniques for creating upgradable smart contracts."
"Despite its success and widespread use for writing smart contracts on Ethereum, Solidity is a relatively new programming language, naturally susceptible to bugs and some high-level logical faults. Out of the demand for smart contract creation and improved security methods for writing them, programming languages Vyper and Scilla have emerged."
"In-depth Explanation of What EVM is and How EVM Works."
"In this article, I will be explaining a foundational architecture that I advise to many of the businesses in the space due to its simplicity, modularity, and platform agnosticism."
"EVM provides such a powerful turing-complete computation so that ethereum can run a general program, also known as smart contract. Plasma EVM is a new version of Plasma that can execute EVM in plasma chain, and its clients can be based on current ethereum clients (go-ethereum, py-evm, parity)."
What do you need to start as an ethereum web developer?
"I’ve decided to compile a short guide to ease the way of future programmers learning Ethereum smart contract development. I’ve divided the guide in two sections: how to get started building smart contracts in Ethereum, and a quick note on smart contract security."
This is an interesting perspective of one of the Ethereum’s core developers.
