As always, we’re celebrating the top 10 ERC-20 projects with the highest dev activity for the past month.
November has proven a true test of faith for many crypto projects. From the SEC’s recent takedown of two ICOs to the all-embracing market slump, BUIDLing – as of late – has been for the brave.
The projects on this list, though, didn’t even flinch.
We asked them what it is exactly they’ve been working on in these volatile times; here’s what they told us:
P.S. You can find dev activity rankings for all ERC-20 projects on SANbase, just by filtering by Dev Activity (last 30 days).
“Version 0.9.31 brings Status up to speed with the latest privacy standard for Ethereum browsers, introduced by EIP1102.
- Browser privacy mode to toggle new web3 security setting on or off

“ERC20 to ERC20 TokenBridge
On November 20th, we announced the release of our ERC20 to ERC20 TokenBridge! The bridge can be setup for any EVM chain, providing near-instant, seamless conversion capabilities from one ERC20 token to another. It is also the third bridge released by POA Network with the first being the Native to ERC20 POA Bridge, and second being the ERC20 to Native Dai Bridge used for xDai Chain. We have been working with various projects in their implementation of the TokenBridge and helping them leverage a sidechain for faster transactions and cheaper gas costs. Check out the Github page for the TokenBridge for more details.
A new release of BlockScout `v1.2.0-beta` and `v1.2.1-beta` were released. https://github.com/poanetwork/
This release includes various features and enhancements including:
- GraphQL support for internal transactions and transactions by address
- Goerli Testnet support
- Geth internal transaction support which now enables contract verification on Rinkeby and Goerli Testnets
- Decoding of input data from verified smart contract inputs and logs
- Added support for Rinkeby Clique algorithm through a block transformer enhancement
- Asynchronous loading of all address page tabs
- Performance improvements
Honey Badger BFT
The team has been working hard finishing the implementation of Honey Badger BFT and is nearing the completion of the implementation. With HBBFT consensus algorithm, a lot of feature implementations become possible including on-chain randomness and censorship resistance. As the team is working on HBBFT, we are also planning on developing a new protocol based on it and we will release more details on it as we get closer.”
“Last week, the project officially moved from testnet to Bitcoin mainnet, a move that was covered in Bitcoin Magazine. Po.et CEO, Jarrod Dicker, noted that the migration was about the project “reaching a new level in both technical and conceptual maturity.”
Dicker followed up by stating, “We set out to build an environment where creators can have access to the first building blocks for bringing blockchain-enabled technologies to new and existing applications. If we are going to change the way the world works, we need to put the power in the hands of those who will build that change. It’s a limited view to assume what the applications for a better web will be, which is why we gave the keys to all of you.”
Po.et has also released many pieces of supporting information for those wishing to build on or implement the protocol including a breakdown of the Po.et architecture, an overview of the protocol’s stages, a glossary of terms, and a look at where the project is heading in the future.”
“The last few months have been busy here at Neufund. We’ve been preparing for our recent launch of the first Equity Token Offering, which has been live on Ethereum Mainnet since November 27th, alongside the listing page which presents the details of the current ETO. It’s an important milestone for us – we’ve been preparing for it for many months now.
Even before the first ETO was announced, we released Neufund 1.1 – a new version of our platform, which introduced a couple of important features, including the Price Oracle, an on-chain source of currency rates that our smart contracts can trust; and Blockchain Identity, which stores the status of your identity verification (KYC) on Blockchain in a secure and private way.”
- We added the ability for storage nodes to advertise a wallet and email address over Kademlia. This information will be used to pay storage node operators for the bandwidth and storage capacity they provide on the network.
- We enabled the overlay, which allows Satellites to talk to nodes that bootstrap onto the network. Before this, those nodes were manually hardcoded on the Satellite.
- We made a lot of progress on how we will be calculating storage node payments for V3. More details on this will be shared in the coming weeks.
- We built a few of the web app screens that clients will be using to sign up for accounts on a Satellite.
- We added better Windows configuration directory support.
- We fixed some bugs and general UX issues.
We also posted an article around upcoming milestones and releases on the V3 Network (https://storj.io/blog/2018/
“November has been a very busy and exciting month for us at Gnosis. We launched the Gnosis Safe, the first smart contract-based wallet for mobile on Mainnet: https://safe.gnosis.io.
It is a multi-signature wallet providing users with a convenient, secure way to manage their digital assets and interact with the decentralized web. We are extremely excited by all the feedback we are receiving from its early users.
We spent much of November testing the Safe, tying up loose ends to assure the launch goes as smoothly as possible.”
“This month we’ve been heads down working on strategy, architecture, as Joanna’s joined the team for that purpose, and working very dedicated on Graphene-ng, the framework for SGX execution which will allow us to have security and privacy within the enclaves to protect the computations and the data in untrusted settings.
We released our first demo 2 weeks ago, see here, and we got a second demo in the making for this week or the next one. We are also focused on the future API, and new iterations of Brass.”
[0x is an open protocol for decentralized exchange of Ethereum tokens]
Here’s an excerpt from 0x’s recent Launch Kit announcement:
“We are excited to release the 0x Launch Kit! If you’re new to working with Ethereum, developing on 0x from scratch can be challenging and time-consuming. The Launch Kit addresses these issues and simplifies 0x integration by dramatically reducing the effort needed to add decentralized token trading to your project.
The Launch Kit makes it easy to get started. Just fork the repo, run, and start making or taking orders via the Standard Relayer API. You can use this core experience as-is or write your own UI that communicates with the Launch Kit to post or serve orderbook information. When you’re ready, deploy onto a hosting service like AWS or Heroku to bring your marketplace to new users.
Projects ranging from teams creating new ERC-20 tokens to indie game makers selling NFTs can use Launch Kit to quickly form secondary markets for their digital assets. Check out the Launch Kit and our revamped documentation to start building on 0x today!”
