GitHub, a major programming repository has just shared a report surrounding the performance of the Polkadot network. As per GitHub, the development activity on Polkadot has reached an all-time high.
Contributions on Polkadot
The data shared by GitHub shows that in the month of September, Polkadot recorded a great level of contributions coming its way.
Throughout the month, over 500 contributions came in favor of Polkadot on a daily basis, which is a great achievement for the network.
Compared to the past records, this is the highest level Polkadot has hit ever since it became operational.
In addition to the above, GitHub has also shared interesting data involving Polkadot and XCM, which is the cross-consensus interoperability standard of Polkadot.
According to GitHub, the total messages exchanged between the parachains of the XCM show that a record of 26,258 messages was sent in September.
Compared to the month of September, the contributions that the developers made in terms of messages were 14,930 in the month of August.
Total Blockchains on Polkadot
Polkadot has been gradually turning into a massive group of networks. As of now, a total of 66 blockchains are being hosted through the Polkadot network.
Kusama, which is the parachain startup network from Polkadot is also supporting Polkadot in managing (hosting) these blockchains.
Polkadot and Kusama have also continued paying out huge amounts of funds for the spending proposals. These particular proposals were made for the advancement of the ecosystem offered by Polkadot.
In terms of figures, both Polkadot and Kusama accumulated a great number of DOT and KSM tokens that translate to be $72.8 million.
As for tokens, Polkadot accumulated 9.6 million DOT while Kusama accumulated 346,700 KSM.
Huge Gains from Parachains
Polkadot has been profiting heavily by selling or auctioning each slot at a different price. These are actually blockchains that are running with the layer-1 capability and operate individually.
Once a parachain is developed, it goes through its test phase through Kusama. Once the parachain is ready, it is then auctioned where the participants try and get their hands on it through crowd loans.
Any project who bids the highest price gets to own the parachain. It was in the month of November 2021 when the first parachain was launched by Polkadot.
Polkadot and Kusama Step Further
Just recently, Rob Habermeier, the founder of Polkadot talked about the future plans of their company. Habermeier is very determined about the company’s future as he has already laid out an entire roadmap.
The purpose of the roadmap for Polkadot and Kusama is to ensure that the company remains focused on its goals. The first thing Polkadot wants to achieve is high scalability.
Polkadot also aims to cut down the time taken to unlock a block by 50%, ultimately increasing the block space at a tremendous rate.
Polkadot aims to achieve a high of 100k or 1000k transactions in a single minute, which it has mentioned in the roadmap.
