Polkadot becomes second-largest development hub after Ethereum

As stated in the reports by Electric Capital, Polkadot has become the second-largest on-chain development ecosystem right after Ethereum. Although Solana did enjoy the status till the last few months of 2021 because of all the NFT hype, it is still behind Polkadot with respect to the total number of developers. With the parachain auctions conducted last year by the ecosystem being a success, it is not at all a surprise to see loads of development happening on the blockchain ecosystem.

The winner of the first auction, Moonbeam is all decked up to go live within a few days after which it shall release EVM to its users. Polkadot began with its second round of auctions way before Moonbeam could go live. Projects such as Efinity and Composable Finance have also won slots for the same.
