According to the survey, Optimism’s OP token has shown superior performance, with an increase of 48% compared to the lows recorded on April 13. Thanks to this increase, the OP cryptocurrency managed to once again surpass Arbitrum in market capitalization.

Currently, OP is in 46th place in the ranking, with a market capitalization of US$ 2,660,544,917, challenging the current position, ARB, which comes next, has a market capitalization of US$ 2,657,164,683 .

Optimism (OP) surpasses Cardano and Ethereum and leads the ranking of development activities

In a rather surprising recent development in the cryptocurrency landscape, the Cardano (ADA) blockchain, which led data on development activity in the cryptocurrency market in a few months, was recently overtaken by Optimism (OP).

A survey released by the Santiment platform on April 23 revealed the 10 best cryptocurrency projects by GitHub development activity in the last 30 days. Active assets with greater development tend to outperform within the crypto market.

The podium for a long time was with the projects Cardano (ADA), Kusama (KSM) and Polkadot (DOT) which alternated in the lead, but did not leave the top 3 best crypto projects by monthly development activity until last month when Chainlink ( LINK) achieved the feat of leading the data.

The achievement of Optimism (OP) is great considering that it registered greater activity than market giants such as Cardano (ADA), Ethereum (ETH), Hedera (HBAR).
